Learn English in Galway, Irland, with students from all around the world


One of the unique features of Bridge Mills Galway Language Centre is its location in The Bridge Mills, an 18th century mill situated on the River Corrib in the centre of Galway. From the school windows there is a superb view of the river below with its colonies of swans and wild birds, and in the distance, Galway Bay and the hills of Co. Clare.


The school began in 1987 as a small group of teachers wishing to bring academic excellence and a high standard of personal attention to students visiting from overseas to study English in Galway. Over the past 30 years we have expanded to our present year-round, adult school of 20+ teachers and on average 150 students per week (full and part-time), but we have never forgotten the principles of the early school.


We are especially proud of our teachers who are chosen for their experience in English language teaching and their knowledge of other cultures and languages. All hold university degrees and have post-graduate qualifications and overseas teaching experience.


In our classes of no more than 12 students, there is a warm and relaxed atmosphere that is both convivial and professional. Most importantly, our teachers genuinely enjoy their lessons and are committed to helping our students fulfil their academic goals, while introducing them to the charm and uniqueness of life on the West Coast of Ireland.
