At mackdonald language academy our ethos is to focus on complete English language immersion. We achieve this through the students living the language – staying with an Irish host family, attending English lessons, learning about and experiencing Irish culture and history in a relaxed, friendly and fun-loving environment.
All our activities are designed to give your students a good insight into Ireland and its natural and cultural beauty. All outings are suitable and also relevant for the age group of your students.
For younger learners, teenagers and high-school students, we arrange a variety of cultural and social activities, including visits to museums, art galleries, cathedrals and castles. The younger learners also take part in weekly sports activities, where they can play football, tennis, hockey, golf or even try some of the Irish national sports. There are also evening events arranged for the junior students attending our Summer English School, including discos and Ceilis (Irish dance and music workshop).
Destinations we visit on our trips include day trips to Glendalough, Dublin, Cork and Waterford. Our teachers will accompany you and your group on each full-day excursion.
