About the school and city

IH Galway is situated in the beautiful university city of Galway on the spectacular Atlantic coast of Ireland. Galway city has 75,000 inhabitants, 20% of whom are university students, and this small size means that the city has a friendly atmosphere and is also very safe for IH students.

We are a Cambridge Assessment teacher training centre and we offer CELTA and DELTA courses. As well as this, we offer year round General English for adults, Cambridge Suite, IELTS and OET exam preparation courses, and summer programmes for teens.  This means that our CELTA candidates will get a feel for an international language school with a mix of students of different nationalities.

The school, which is located right in Eyre Square, was started by Mary Grennan, who is an internationally renowned CELTA and DELTA trainer.
