The Celtic Cultural Center of Madison presents the annual Irish Language Weekend. This weekend brings together Irish speakers of all levels, from folks who have never heard the language to native speakers. This event is a fun and casual way to get introduced to a very beautiful language, and one that may even have been spoken by your grandparents. In addition to language classes, the weekend will entertain you with music, dancing, and meeting new friends.
This gathering will take place at the Lowell Center on the UW-Madison campus. If you are planning on lodging, it is important that you make your room reservation early. To make a room reservation, please contact the Lowell Center directly. It's definitely not easy to find a room in Madison during football season!
We also have a block of rooms reserved at the Dahlman Campus Inn, located directly across the street from the Lowell Center. The rate is $139.00/night. This rate includes: hot breakfast, airport transportation to and from Dane County Regional airport, parking, high speed wireless internet, and 24 hour fitness center. To get the group rate, please use the group number: 140503 and group name: Irish Language Weekend. The block reservation will be held until 9/20/13.
