The Gaeltacht. What is it?
The Gaeltacht is the term used to refer to those areas of Ireland
in which the Irish language (Gaeilge) is still spoken as a community
language, and its culture and traditions are very much alive and
These Irish speaking communities are scattered over seven counties
and four provinces. Situated mainly along the Western seaboard,
the Gaeltacht covers extensive areas of counties Donegal, Mayo,
Galway and Kerry and also parts of counties Cork, Meath and Waterford.
These regions present many varied and interesting holiday locations.
Each region possesses an environment rich in heritage, folklore,
culture and traditions, with a strong sense of its own identity
and uniqueness. Here, within, lies the 'true Ireland'! (GaelSaoire)
