Our partner school, established since 1993, is situated in 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 material. During your stay you will have access to a 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 of the famous Galway Bay and Galway city itself.
