IH Galway

Galway, Ireland

Following the Irish Government's recent announcement of the latest restrictions on movement, we've changed the structure of our next CELTA course to make it possible for candidates to take our CELTA course 100% online from their homes.  

The course will be a bit different to our normal CELTA Online and face to face courses. It will take place over five weeks, so closer in time to a full-time course, and it will be 100% online. Click on "More Info"  below to find the full details. 

If you would prefer to wait and enjoy the face to face experience with us, we are still planning on running face to face courses later in the summer. Read on for more details!

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.
