Our classes are held every Tuesday night during the Victorian school term (except public holidays), starting at 7:30 pm and finishing at 9 pm.

In 2020 we moved classes online, but starting on 26 April 2022 two of our classes (Beginners & Intermediate) will return to the classroom.  The Advanced class will remain online.  There will still be online classes (Beginners & Intermediate) on Wednesdays, primarily for people outside Melbourne.

Normally, we’d say you’re welcome to try a class before committing, but since we have to book a venue with capacity limits, we’ll need you to commit to a term if you’re coming to a physical class.  All continuing students are expected to become members of the Cumann ($45 per year).  In addition, we offer our teachers an honorarium for their hard work and to help finance that and room bookings we charge students $40 per term.  This is roughly equivalent to the money that was collected at physical classes at the Celtic Club.


To help plan our room bookings and textbook orders, please use this form to register for next year’s classes.

Books are sold at cost price, which at our last purchase was $60 for Gaeilge gan Stró Beginners Level and $75 for Lower Intermediate Level.


Although you can join a Zoom meeting using only a web browser, it is recommended that you get the Zoom app (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS). If you can manage it, headphones with a microphone will make it much easier to hear and be heard. Classes starts at the same time (7:30 pm), but run for about an hour and a quarter.
