Stay in a Glorious Gaeltacht B&B

When non-Gaelic speakers consider the Irish language, two phrases usually pop into their heads – 'céad míle fáilte' and 'craic agus ceol'.  'Céad míle fáilte' is a world-famous Irish traditional saying which directly translates into ‘a hundred thousand welcomes’ and is used to describe the warm and friendly hospitality everyone experiences when they visit Ireland. The translation of ‘craic agus ceol’ is simply ‘fun and music’ but is a phrase used to capture the true essence of the liveliness and energy of Irish culture. If you stay in a Blaiseadh Gaeltachta B&B, you are guaranteed to learn and experience the true meaning of both these Irish sayings!

The Irish Language

Blaiseadh Gaeltachta B&Bs are located in Gaeltacht regions of Ireland, areas where Irish is still spoken as a first language. A stay at one of these B&Bs is a memorable and unique one, something which cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world! Your host will be a fluent Gaelic speaker and will happily teach you ‘cúpla focal’ (a couple of words) to kick-start your Irish vocabulary. If you are interested in learning the language, your host can point you in the direction of local Irish classes for beginners and even activities which are done through Irish, including guided tours of the area.

The Irish Experience

There is so much more to Blaiseadh Gaeltachta B&Bs than just the Irish language as they are a chance to fully immerse yourself in Irish traditional culture. You have the opportunity to see how an Irish family lives and to experience their traditions. There is nothing better than sitting back and listening to the beauty and lyricism of the Irish language being spoken in full swing by native speakers. Your host will have inside knowledge on any céilí taking place, where you can dance with the locals and learn about the culture first-hand. A trad music session in a pub is also a must-do as you can put the phrase ‘craic agus ceol’ to the test for yourself!

Staying in the Gaeltacht is really something you will never forget and is a place where you will always long to return to. There is a certain magic to the Irish language and uniqueness to the Irish culture that makes it such a treat to experience. Blaiseadh Gaeltachta B&Bs will give you the opportunity to soak it all up in comfort and luxury. So what are you waiting for?

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
