Gleann Cholm Cille

Oideas Gael is located in Gleann Cholm Cille in South-West Donegal. This Gaeltacht area, named after St. Colm Cille, is located in the scenically splendid Sliabh Liag peninsula.

The region is renowned for its wealth of tradition, culture, music and prehistoric settlements, as well as the excellent amenities specially created here, such as the famous Folk Village, founded by Fr. McDyer as a result of notable community effort, to which the work of Oideas Gael continues to contribute. An tOireachtas, the major celebration of Irish language and culture, took place here in October 1989.

All courses are in Gleann Cholm Cille except when indicated otherwise in the course calendar. Some of our courses take place at another location in Gleann Fhinne in mid-Donegal.
