The Irish College of English has been running Youth Programmes for over 25 years and has an International Reputation for Quality Programmes. In addition to our Classic and Intensive English & Cultural Programmes, we offer alternative options in our English & Sports Camps. Our Sailing and English Language Camp combines 15 hours English Language tuition in the mornings and Sailing in Malahide Yacht Club four afternoons per week. In addition, students have two trips per week. This programme is the ideal way for students to fully immerse themselves in the language by and meeting new friends while improving their sports’ skill.
Students take part in the Classic Junior Summer School tuition programme and then in the afternoons attend the sailing programme with Irish teenagers. Malahide, on the coast of Dublin is an ideal base for students to learn about water sports. Malahide Yacht Club is just a 15 minute walk from our centre. The Estuary itself is a Perfect Place to Learn to Sail as it’s quite sheltered and the water is not excessively deep – most adults and teenagers are never out of their dept. Each Afternoon will include 3 hours of Sailing using Double Handed Topaz (2 person boats) and 420s and Omegas (larger and faster boats). All levels can be catered for from total beginner to advanced and all instructors are Qualified ISA (Irish Sailing Association) instructors. In addition to English language tuition and sailing, students will take part in Friday and Saturday cultural tours.
Voted one of Ireland’s most beautiful towns, Malahide is an ideal location. It is an affluent residential area of Dublin with a very high standard of living. It is on the Dublin Coast line and has many famous tourist attractions – Malahide Castle & Park, Malahide Village, Malahide Marina & Coast.
As a small, safe suburb of Dublin it is an ideal location for juniors. It also has Excellent Transport Links to Dublin City Centre (20 minutes by train), 10 minutes to Dublin Airport. Click here to see more on Malahide.
