Irish Language and Culture Weekend
October 12-14, 2018
Madison, Wisconsin

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, 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.


Tuition for this weekend will be $130.00 ($110.00 if you register by August 15, 2018). Tuition will cover all instruction, evening socials, Saturday dinner, and Sunday lunch. Please note: Friday night meal and Saturday lunch will be on your own.


All activities 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 reservations early. Rooms go very fast. To make a room reservation, please contact the Lowell Center directly. Make sure to mention that you are with the Irish Language Weekend. They are holding a block of rooms for us until September 6.
