    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a bilingual region, English and Irish are both spoken widely. Irish is an ancient Celtic language, and both my husband and myself are English teachers. The West of Ireland is home to Irish traditional music, and there are local teachers of music. We live 1 km from the sea and kayaking, swimming and fishing are local activities. There is a craft center in the village and basket-weaving and pottery classes are available.
