Gorey is a thriving market town an hour's drive from the southern outskirts of Dublin. It is a pretty town with a healthy population of 9500 people. It has two modern hotels with leisure centres, five major supermarkets as well as a wide selection of shops all along the main street. There are beautiful boutiques and restaurants offering everything from Italian, Thai and Chinese to Irish food. The pubs range from the modern to the authentic with a healthy offering of traditional music and entertainment.

There is a wide variety of sports clubs on offer from the ever popular tennis and rugby clubs to gymnastics, martial arts, badmintin, GAA and golf to name a few.

Gorey has good transport links with Dublin. It is situated on the main N11 to Dublin which makes driving to Dublin very easy. There are regular trains every day from the centre of the town and two bus routes which depart every hour. These buses also provide a direct route to and from Dublin airport.

Courtown is a seaside and fishing village 5km from Gorey. It is a holiday destination for Irish people and has wondeful amenities which Gorey Language Centre avail of regularly. Apart from the beautiful sandy beaches all along the coast, there is a public leisure centre with a 25m pool and slides, ‘Gravity’ which is a ropes assault course through the trees including zip wire,wall climbing  and the dreaded ‘leap of faith’!

Both Gorey and Courtown are situated in the county of Wexford along with the other major towns of this area, Enniscorthy, New Ross and Wexford town itself.

During the summer there are festivals on in a lot of the towns and villages of Wexford. There is always something happening and we do our best to coincide our excursions with special activities which might be going on in the area.

Our Committment

We believe that the best way to learn a language is to integrate as much as possible into the local community, by taking part in activities alongside Irish people, that the student already enjoys doing in their free time - or by trying something new.
