For many years, Daltaí na Gaeilge has offered a Summer Immersion Week. These were begun by our founder, the late Ethel Brogan, to give Gaeilgeorí a chance not only for classes but to speak Irish with others and to join in social activities.
Accommodations are dormitory style and comfortable. Meals are served cafeteria style. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. One afternoon is a “free” half-day when you can explore the surrounding area or just relax on the grounds. Weather permitting, the pool is open daily so pack your swimsuit.
No meals are served on Sunday so you may want to grab a bite before checking in or brown-bag it. At check-in, you will receive a packet with the week’s schedule and other information. You will have time to find your dorm and settle in before the Cruinniú where you will meet your teachers and fellow learners.
Classes begin early Monday morning and there are classes for students at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels as well as separate classes for children. The schedule may seem daunting, but there is ample time for study, rest and recreation. You’ll hear the “lilt of Irish laughter” often during your stay. Many of the attendees are repeat visitors who find great enjoyment here. So come and “bain sult as”. You’ll be glad you did.
The 2024 Summer Week Immersion Program will be held August 25th to August 31st (date tentative) in Esopus, New York. The Official Announcement and Registration Form for this event will be posted in the Daltaí shop (usually 6 to 8 weeks before the scheduled date).
And if you have a moment please take a look at the short video below that Melissa Murray put together. Melissa won a Daltaí Scholarship in 2011 and she attended our Summer Immersion Week in Esopus. Here is her clever and entertaining summary of her experience.
