Coronavirus and Irish College of English Programmes

At the Irish College of English, the health and safety of all our staff, students, host families and the communities in which we operate is our priority. We are keeping up to date with all government recommendations in relation to the Coronavirus and will follow best practice in this regard to ensure the well-being of all of our staff and clients now and in the future.

Ireland has closed all schools and colleges and childcare facilities including English Language schools as a measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, our premises are now closed but our adult classes during this time will be operating as normal online with virtual interactive classes and students can continue their studies with us. We have also introduced a ‘Book with Confidence’ guarantee, allowing current and new bookings to be postponed to any dates up to the end of 2021 with no additional fees.

Our Junior Summer Camps will not be running in 2020 due to the Pandemic but we are offering Virtual Summer Camps and already are accepting bookings for our Junior Summer Camps in 2021. We are contacting clients directly affected by this.

We will be contacting and supporting all students during this time.

We are contactable on and all our staff are working as normal online.

We will reopen once our government reopens schools and should you wish to postpone a course or take it online just email us.

This policy will be updated on a regular basis as the situation develops.
