Message from John Daly, CEO

Dear All,

On 31 August 2020 we were delighted to reopen Atlantic Language School Galway for face to face classes. Unfortunately due to the financial impact of the Covid-19 crisis, we have had to postpone the reopening of our Dublin centre. In our Galway School classes are taking place in keeping with all health and safety protocols – compulsory mask wearing, social distancing, hand sanitising.

If you have questions about courses booked for the remaining months of 2020, please contact us at contact@atlantic.ac and we will get back to you directly.  

Yours sincerely

John Daly,
CEO Atlantic Language
