Extra Curricular Activities at LinguaWest

Moorlands Equestrian Centre beside our accommodation in the Allen Centre

LinguaWest provides an activity based experience for all our students. We want our students to be active and participating to the best of their ability is the large variety of activities provided or catered for. 

All Our Extra Curricular activities are provided by full trained and experienced instructors from the  Allen Centre. All Staff here are fully trained and insured. 

In LinguaWest we try to vary the activities provided each afternoon, morning or evening. Some activities may incur a small additional cost payable locally but this will be advised well in advance.

In the evening time students will take part in group bonding activities, sports, Irish cultural activities including Irish dancing lessons and memorable visits to Gaelic football or Hurling matches. Attending these sporting events is sure to be an occasion to remember for our students.
