Teaching, lectures and classes
The Inch House Irish Studies Centre employs a wide range of speakers to suit every type of programme need. These speakers are experts in language, politic science, the social sciences, the arts and international business. We have a huge range of local contacts, experienced with international students.

Our students meet community leaders and internationally recognised academics who specialise in many topics ranging from 16th Century Irish History to International Business to Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies. Our literature and liberal arts students engage with an equally diverse range of speakers, including artists and film makers, university professors, playwrights and poets. Many local entrepreneurs and business leaders speak to our management students, including Enterprise Ireland, The IDA, Údarás na Gaeltachta and Failte Ireland. Professor John Hume, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former MEP is a regular speaker at our centre.
