Fáilte ar bord/Welcome on board

Seo chugat Irish With Ian! Iontach sásta go bhfuil tú linn.

This is Irish With Ian! I’m delighted that you’ve paid us a visit.


The site provides an overview of courses I teach as part of the Lifelong Learning program at Stranmillis University College, Belfast, and I hope that you’ll find something of interest.

If you’d like to take your first steps in Irish, or brush up on that creaky old Gaeilge you learned at school years ago, you’ve come to the right place.

And there’s maybe a thing or two you could learn about our shared heritage and history: that’s what Hidden Ulster is all about! We’ve a lot more in common that some might like us to believe.

Click the Courses link here or in the menu to see full details.

Cúrsaí Eile/Other courses

I’ve put this site together primarily to provide information about my courses in Irish language and history for Lifelong Learners at Stranmillis.

However, I appreciate that you might want a course more specific to your requirements and offer a range of other courses for small groups. I also provide one-to-one teaching for those who might not be able to do a “regular” course or who would like tuition specific to their needs.

Online teaching means that distance is not an object, so if you’d like to find out more about small group learning or one-to-one tuition, please get in touch via the contact page on my site.

In the meantime, you can check out my Twitter timeline in the sidebar – I do tweet rather a lot of flower pictures and music videos!

And don’t forget to share the class details with those who you think might be interested in the courses…

Tar ar ais! Do visit again!
