Welcome to the website of the Irish Language Office, Trinity College



Irish is for international students and staff too!


About Us

The Irish Language Office exists to promote the Irish language in Trinity College Dublin, among both staff and students. The Irish Language Officer works with Coiste na Gaeilge to achieve this aim. The Office provides services and information to the university authorities and community concerning the Official Languages Act, and supplies a translation service to staff. The Office also administers Trinity's Irish Language Residency Scheme for students.


In this site, you will find information on Irish as a living language in Trinity life: classes, social events and the Irish language residency schemes. Irish has a central role in this university: see the Welcome from the Provost. Our Cumann Gaelach is one of the largest and most active student societies for Irish in the country. Trinity's Department of Irish is a friendly mini-gaeltacht within the Arts Building. We have Seomra na Gaeilge in the centre of campus, but that is far from the only place where Irish is spoken in Trinity, as will be seen throughout this website.
