About An Siopa Gaeilge
An Siopa Gaeilge is committed to providing a first-class service to language learners, teachers, parents and all those interested in Ireland’s language and culture.
Since its foundation in 1984, Oideas Gael has attracted hundreds of participants annually to its highly acclaimed language courses and cultural programmes. In this time, we have developed particular expertise in assisting the many people who attend our classes in the Donegal Gaeltacht and associated courses throughout Ireland and around the world.
Established by Oideas Gael, An Siopa Gaeilge is located in Gleann Cholm Cille, Co. Donegal. An Siopa contains a selection of books, audiovisual materials and learning resources regarded by Oideas Gael as being of particular interest to the adult Irish language learner as well as teachers. We also carry a wide selection of materials for children and a variety of traditional music resources.
Our selection of traditional music CDs focus, in particular, on those wonderful musicians hosted by Cairdeas na bhFidiléirí as well as those who play each summer in Oideas Gael’s highly-acclaimed concert series.
An Siopa also carries an unsurpassed range of bilingual greeting cards, along with books on Irish history, culture, archaeology, music and the environment. Note too that An Siopa Gaeilge is able to facilitate those interested in purchasing paintings of the area, knitwear and other local handcrafts.
