Our partner school, established since 1993, is situated at the very heart of the city centre. The building has been especially designed to welcome a large number of students and offers modern facilities, bright and spacious classrooms equipped with quality audiovisual materials. During your stay you have access to a large library and a multimedia room in order to facilitate further language learning. During the high season, extra classrooms are made available. The school is recognised for its competent team of teachers coming from different backgrounds as well as for its warm and welcoming atmosphere. Finally, there is a rooftop terrace where students can go during their breaks and after class to relax and chat with their new friends whilst taking in the magnificent view over the famous Galway Bay and Galway city itself.

Ich bin begeistert von Anfang bis zum Schluss. Die Schule die Lehrer alle sind sehr bemüht das alles zu deiner vollsten Zufriedenheit ist. Ob in einen Apartment oder in einer Gastfamilie es ist für jeden was dabei. Galway ist perfekt es hat alles was man braucht zum einkaufen oder weg gehen. Die Leute sind so Gastfreundlich und nett, das habe ich selten erlebt. Irland selber ist ein Erlebnis, das raue Wetter tut den Eindrücken was die Landschaft zu bieten hat keinen Abbruch. Ich war jedes mal begeistert wenn ich wieder ein Naturwunder erleben durfte. Der Preis ist ok für die gebotene Leistung. Der Standort der Schule ist perfekt jede Verbindung ist unmittelbar in der Nähe der Schule. Klassenräume sind etwas klein da die Schule sehr gefragt ist. Der Hauptteil der Schüler sind aus Brasilien :) mehr als die Hälfte. Auf jedenfall ist die Schule zum Empfehlen besser lernt man nirgends die Sprache.

Atlantic Language, Galway
Duration: 12 weeks

I spent three weeks at the Atlantic school in Galway, Ireland. The school is very well located and parts of the premises have been recently refurbished, which allows you to work in good conditions. There is a big hallway with a cafeteria and a terrace to relax during the break!

The teachers were very accessible and we worked on our oral, written and listening skills. That was great because there was always a good dynamics during the classes! Depending on the subjects dealt with, everyone explained the specificities of their countries! That was greatly enriching.

As far as the accommodation was concerned, my host family was great!! I will never forget the three months I spent at their place! I had my super comfortable room and I had all my meals with them in the evening, as for lunch I ate at the school. There was a good atmosphere at home and I quickly felt at ease. I was very warmly welcomed (with a good tea of course!) and I shed a few tears when I left! Today, I am still in contact with them and I am planning to go back to Ireland to settle there!

I recommend traveling with ESL because I was very well assisted during my project and when I called several times to have information, I was always well guided and advised!

Go and live an unforgettable experience in Ireland without any further delay!

Duration: 3 months

The school in Galway is perfectly located, only 5 minutes away from the town centre. I loved the large terrace with a sea view… Truly incredible! It's a great meeting point for friends and teachers to discuss the previous evening's activities and those of the next evening. In Galway, it's impossible to get bored, there's dancing, music and all these Celtic legends to listen to… You can only be happy here!

Atlantic Language, Galway
Duración: 3 week

I spent 3 amazing weeks in Galway, at the Atlantic Language School. I lived with a really nice host family and my neighbours were other students from the same school, so it was nice to go to school with them in the morning! The school was great! I made so many new friends in such a short time, and the staff was very warm and helpful – both at reception and in the cafeteria. Teachers were really good as well. It’s nice to have different ones in the morning and in the afternoon, as it gives the opportunity to experience different learning methods. They were all very good at teaching English while making us discover the Irish culture.

The activity programme was extremely good; I visited the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher, hiked on the Connemara, discovered the hurling game and the pub nights… As for Galway itself, it’s a pretty little city with an amazing atmosphere. No doubts about it: if you want to learn English and live a wonderful experience, choose Galway and the Atlantic School! Ireland is a beautiful country with smiley and lovely people that will (almost) make you forget about the rain! I take this opportunity to thank ESL for helping me in the organization of this fantastic language stay and for suggesting Galway. I will cherish these memories forever!
