Want to learn the Irish language?

Want to learn the Irish language, or pick up where you left off? Na Gaeil teaches and supports Irish (or call it Gaelic, Gaeilge, Gaelainn, Gaolainn) in Chicagoland.


Na Gaeil's Irish language classes return for the Spring 2018 term in late January and run through May 2018. Come connect with Irish culture, heritage, and new friends through the first language of Ireland in an informal and fun setting.

Saturday classes - all levels: from January 27, 11:00am-1:30pm
Wednesday classes - all levels: from January 31, 7:00pm-9:30pm

Beginners are very welcome. If you have no prior experience with the Irish language, the Fall term is your starting point. (The Spring term picks up where the Fall term leaves off.) If you already have some Irish, you may well be able to start in the Spring term.

Tuition for the Spring term is $125 for new Na Gaeil students and $100 for returning students. Tuition includes books and materials. Payment is by cash or check at your first class.

Classes are held in The Irish American Heritage Center's 2nd Floor Library, 4626 N. Knox Ave., Chicago, IL 60630.

We'd love to know you're coming ahead of time—email us at—but you can also just show up. If you cannot start near the beginning of the term, email us to make arrangements.
