Seachtain na Gaeilge

Seachtain na Gaeilge is an international Irish language festival and an annual worldwide celebration of our language and our culture. 

The festival gives people an opportunity to engage with and enjoy the language, both fluent speakers, learners, and those who only have a few words.  An entertaining and enjoyable programme of activities is organised each year for all age groups, interests and levels of language ability. 

More than 100 events are held across County Galway as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge each year.  Áras na nGael has a full programme every year with something for everyone.
