There is nothing like a trip to the Gaeltacht to improve on ones spoken Irish.
In Gaelcholáiste Dáibhís we have two key links to Gaeltacht areas. In 1st year student visit the Dingle Gaeltacht accompanied by Dingle native and teacher An tUasal Manning. As well as practicing their oral language skills they also visit the geographical landscape of Inch sand spit and a number of historical sites including Gallarus oratory.
Second Years have an exchange programme with Colaiste Naomh Éinne located on the Inis Mor Arainn. Overall, second years spend a full week interacting with students from the island both on Inis Mor and back home in Mallow.
