Our Story

Since 1993, Atlantic Language School has welcomed thousands of students from over 100 different countries to Galway, one of Ireland’s liveliest cities.

Atlantic Language School offers excellence in training for people of all ages, levels, and needs, coming from all over the world to study English in Ireland. We strive to make each student experience a memorable one, defined by quality teaching and supported by a warm and dedicated team.

In 1993, Atlantic Language School started out in three attic rooms at the top of a creaky staircase.

Since then, we have grown to occupy a custom designed school in the centre of Galway city. Although we have increased in size, Atlantic Language School retains the warm, friendly atmosphere which made it a home from home for its first students.
