Locations

Dublin

Dublin is where BreizhEire began, we established there a strong dynamic around our activities and places.

Places frequently used:
Club Chonradh na Gaeilge:
The Chonradh na Gaeilge is the Irish speaking club of Dublin centre. The Club is welcoming for several of our activities and various events which sometimes are organised jointly.
The CnG is situated on basement level (to access, go down the metal stairs) at 6 Harcourt street, next to St Stephen’s Green. It is open every day from 8.00 pm.
The Club Chonradh Na Gaeilge is a place primarily set for speaking and practicing the Irish language. It is therefore asked to anyone coming to this club to avoid speaking in English and to use primarily Irish when possible.

Monthly music & dance sessions
The monthly session is taking place every last Friday of the month from 9.00 pm at the Club Chonradh na Geailge (6 Harcourt st.). The night is an open session for dancers and musicians, becoming a small fest-noz as well as a great socialising time within BreizhEire.

Breton language classes/speaking sessions:
After having a regular session / class, we haven’t enough people to maintain this activity now, but this could start again if anyone shows interest in joining in.

Games:
From May until September we organise few afternoons where we play Breton games like Breton boules and palet, together with a picnic. This is either taking place in St Ann’s Park (Plan), or next to the Malahide Castle (Plan).
