Why Choose Us?

Our philosophy at Shannon Academy of English is that learning a language is about more than academic learning; it is equally about experiencing and appreciating people and cultures. That’s why, at Shannon Academy, all our programmes are centred around both academic and extracurricular activities.

Our structured teaching and learning strategies are from a curriculum that gives students a feel for Irish culture, while our host family experience and strong programme of cultural activities offer students a first-hand taste of Irish life.

Every student and group that we welcome to Shannon Academy becomes part of both our school community and the local community. Our unique location in the heart of Ireland offers all the best of Ireland’s charm and welcome in an urban but friendly environment, while also giving students easy access to some of Ireland’s most iconic cultural sites and experiences.

Shannon Academy of English has more than 20 years’ experience welcoming students to Ireland from countries around the world including France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and the US. We look forward to meeting many more over the coming years!

Over the years, Caoimhe and the team at Shannon Academy have developed strong professional relationships both with our agencies and our partners here in Ireland, ensuring that everything runs smoothly for the success of our programmes.

The agencies we work with trust us to tailor-make our programme content to each group’s needs, and to provide excellent value for money, delivering excellence in both tuition and cultural experience. The school is fully insured and compliant with all national health and safety regulations.
