This full-day immersion for Irish speakers of all levels features music, film, writing, and storytelling workshops exploring Ireland’s relationship with the waters that surround it. Hear stories of sirens and selkies in the language in which they were originally told, sing sea shanties and ballads, watch a cooking demo of a classic Irish seafood dish, and take in an award-winning film, all while practicing your conversation skills with our diverse and welcoming Gaeilge community.

Admission to Féile na Gaeilge 2019 includes a ticket to the evening’s showing of the documentary The Camino Voyage: An Epic 2,500 km Modern Day Celtic Odyssey.
