Leisure Programme

A range of leisure options to suit every personality is available to you through our programme here in Schull.

Perhaps you may enjoy outdoor activities, such as sailing or diving. You may just want to explore Irish culture, or you might have an interest in some of the creative arts programmes we have here. More than anything, it is the variety of choice we have for our students that sets us apart form other language school and leisure activity centres.

Kayaking, Golf, trips to local cultural sites or archaeological tours and you may even join a fun painting, jewellery making or sculpture workshop - whatever is on the ‘general leisure menu’ -one thing is sure - you will not be bored! You will attend a full day excursion at the weekends – usually Saturdays. For example, a trip to Cork City, Glengarriff for Seal Watching and shopping or a day of mini golf.

Love the Leisure

All activities take place in approved and safe centres only with qualified instructors. Transportation to and from activity centres is provided and included in your fee.

Let your Guardian Angel Entertainer/Host help you enjoy your stay, in the most personal way

Guardian Angel Entertainer: LET US ENTERTAIN YOU! - Here at Atlantic SEAL, we do things differently, and always with special attention to you in mind. We appoint a Guardian Angel Entertainer to some of our students and this could be your teacher, your colleague (if you are an intern) or your host. Or sometimes all three! This way one of our team will make sure that you are never bored. It could be a night out for pizza with your colleagues (if an intern), some live music or you could go home for dinner or stay as a guest in the home of one of our team. This way we keep it all very familiar and you get to speak in English and really embrace the way of life here. And this is all part of your leisure programme or can be an additional add on depending on what programme you have chosen. Your guardian angel will do all the planning and fix up for things during your leisure time so you can just relax and enjoy, carefree. Let us care for you...
