An Chrannóg
An Chrannóg is a Language and Cultural Centre located in Na Doirí Beaga in the heart of the Gaoth Dobhair Gaeltacht, which has one of the largest speaking Irish communities in Ireland. The centre successfully encourages the wider use of Irish through its extensive range of educational courses and community activities. Research facilities include a comprehensive library with special emphasis on publications of Ulster authors, an extensive radio and television archive and modern language laboratory. Courses in conversational Irish with special emphasis on Ulster dialect are offered at three levels depending on fluency already attained. This approach ensures progress and promotes confidence among learners.

Oideas Gael
Oideas Gael was founded to promote the learning and use of the Irish language and to foster Irish culture within the Gaeltacht and elsewhere. Oideas Gael Irish language courses are specially constructed to cater for the needs of adults, at all learning stages, including those who are more advanced but in need of practice. Each course contains three or more levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced and is usually of one week’s duration. The cultural activity courses are organised in bilingual form, which makes them equally attractive to people with little or no Irish. All courses offer participants an un-paralleled opportunity to enjoy an activity holiday within a rich cultural setting. Courses include hill walking, archaeology, tapestry weaving, bodhrán playing, flute and whistle playing, celtic pottery, Donegal dances, marine painting, environment and culture.
