What our students said about Galway

5.0

Rating: 5/5

The language school is located in the immediate city centre. Apart from many advantages, this has the disadvantage that the daily lunch in the heavily frequented city centre is very expensive. A minimum of 10 Euros is to be expected in each case. But the offer is very varied. The public transport is offered on the line 407, which was used to reach my host family, only every half hour and on Sundays as well as in the evening hours only once per hour. The bus is always at least 5 minutes late during rush hours. It also happened that the bus did not come at all.

A wonderful city! Full of music and friendly locals. Within easy walking distance of important tourist attractions, such as the Cliffs of Moher, which can be reached for an inexpensive price by public transport. A well-developed network of travel agencies that also offer trips to more distant places for reasonable prices.

Galway is worth a visit, a beautiful city with lots of attractions. Live Irish music in the pubs is sensational. Residents friendly, smiling whatever the weather.

FAQ about schools in Galway

  • All schools reserve their accommodation for students enrolling on a language course with them. We will be happy to send you a detailed quotation for a language course including accommodation with the features you require.
    Veronica Romualdi, Language Travel Consultant from LanguageCourse.Net - Apr 10, 2024
  • Many schools in summer organize junior programmes comprising course + activity programme + accommodation in a residence or host family (with full board). However, most of these programmes end the last week of July, or the first week of August. If you can't move your travel dates, we have an ultra-comprehensive programme, "Study and Live in Your Teacher's Home", which allows you to organize both your course and activities more freely, where you study and live in your teacher's home for rapid and complete language progress.
