Social Activities


We have a super social activities programme and vistit some amazing places in County Kerry - including Tralee, Killarney and Dingle.

There is a myriad of things to do in Kerry so coming to study English in Ireland doesn’t have to be completely serious all of the time.

Quite regularly the staff and students of Celtic School of English go to the Greyhound track for an evening of betting and entertainment. We dont usually hit the jackpot but we have great fun all the same.

But you can do activities by yourself too. If you want, we can organize different activities for you. Of course you can do a General English + Diving course but if you just want to go diving yourself for a day, we can arrange it for you. Other sports in the area include horse-riding, swimming, sailing, hill-walking and football.

Now, if you prefer the more sedentary lifestyle, you can go shopping! Tralee has some amazing shops that will keep you busy for hours. On a more serious note, you can visit the Garden of the Senses for your leisurely stroll, you can visit the museum and educate yourself on Irish and local history. During the Summer, you can take a trip on the steam train that has been restored perfectly and transports you from Tralee to Blennerville where the Windmill is a must see. Or you can sit in the square sipping on a coffee and watching the world walk by.

For those of you who would like venture further afield, you can hop on a bus. Dingle and Slea Head are only an hour away and are among the most beautiful areas in Ireland. No trip to Ireland is complete without having a pint in one of the many friendly pubs in Dingle. On another bus you can visit Killarney which is less than an hour away. A stroll through Killarney National Park, a look around Muckross House, a climb up Torc Waterfall and a pony and trap ride through the Gap of Dunloe all await you.

In the evenings it is very important that you go to the pub! Ireland is famous for her pubs and Guinness but don’t forget the people that you will meet or the craic you will have while listening to some live music. You could start the evening off with a trip to Siamsa Tire, the National Folk Theatre, and enjoy a play or a concert.

So come on! Let Celtic School of English be your gate to the perfect vision of Ireland.
