Immerse yourself in an Irish language and cultural experience at An Droichead.

Belfast’s fascinating Irish language heritage is just waiting to be explored. Today, Belfast’s connection to the Irish language is stronger than for many years, as you’ll discover at the state-of the-art cultural complex An Droichead in South Belfast, which is at the cutting edge in the provision of the Irish language.

Get your day off to a great start with a more tangible version of Irish culture, the full Irish breakfast! Next, take a guided tour around the complex, which includes a music and dance
hall, arts and crafts studios, exhibition space, a community facility and a school and nature garden, before taking a customised class in Irish.

Enjoy lunch at the centre before heading into inner city South and East Belfast on a guided mini bus tour, exploring some of the little known aspects of the Irish language heritage in these areas. You’ll discover the impact of Irish on many parts of Belfast life and maybe you’ll even be able to practise your new found language skills!
