Welcome to O'Grady School Of English

Husband and wife team John and Mary O’Grady founded and run O’Grady School of English. We specialise in summer courses for teenagers, and our camps are based in small rural communities in Co. Limerick, south west Ireland. Students live with local host families, and are immersed in rural life, in the "real" Ireland of the Welcomes.

Student numbers have grown year on year, and most students come to us by word of mouth. In fact, our 95% repeat and referral rate speaks for itself. Feel free to browse our site, and please visit our Contact page for any information required, or to book one of our courses.
