Terms & Conditions

To derive maximum benefit from the experience we require that all students speak Irish at all times according to their capability amongst themselves and with the local people.

Parents of summer students will be notified of the date and venue for an introductory meeting in their locality prior to the course. At this meeting the course structure is explained in English and any questions or concerns will be addressed. Any outstanding payments may also be made at this meeting. We require at least one adult/guardian to attend this meeting with students.

A student’s place on a course is not guaranteed until the deposit is received.

If a parent or child decides not to proceed with the course once the deposit has been paid, the deposit less 30 Euro may be returned within a few days. It may take up to 30 days for a credit card refund to appear on your statement. Deposits will not be returned after May 1st 2019.

Should a requested course be at capacity by the time the deposit is received, a full refund or alternative date will be offered.

No refund is available for those who leave the course early for whatever reason.

Fees will be returned should the course not proceed.

Good behaviour, co-operation and participation according to ability are expected from all students.

No student may go for a swim or enter the water without the supervision of a teacher.
