Atlantic S.E.A.L. is a small, select English Language school and a certified teacher training centre.

We offer standard and flexible General English courses, as well as Business and Specialist programmes in our year-round adult centre. WE prepare students for the linguistic & academic demands of University life with our English Exam and Cultural Education courses (IELTS, Cambridge, TOEIC, TOEFL etc).

We also have exciting summer programmes for juniors (9 to 12 years), teenagers (13 to 17) & very young learners (3 to 8years). For students who cannot travel to Atlantic SEAL we offer On-line English programmes with our native English speaking teachers. If you wish to gain an internationally recognised English Language Teacher Qualification (CertTESOL) we are the only school in Ireland to offer this prestigious qualification programme.

South West Cork has been described as “the most magical place in Ireland.” It boasts a mix of mountains, moors, wild hills full of lakes, deep river valleys and dramatic cliffs overlooking the Atlantic.

Atlantic S.E.A.L.'s adult school is based in a charming traditional Irish building right in the centre of the town of Schull in beautiful SouthWest Cork. We have the best of both worlds - a peaceful location, an ideal learning environment, and both the Atlantic and the town on our doorstep. The Junior & Teenager's school (see photo above) looks out on the Atlantic which is seconds away on foot.

At Atlantic S.E.A.L we want to offer every kid, of every age the opportunity to excel in English. Our Young Kids' Summer Camp is for 3 to 8-year-olds. ... [+]

The earlier a child is introduced to a second language, the greater the chances are that the child will become truly proficient in the language. Experts claim that "A child taught a second language under the age of 10 is more likely to speak it like a native." This statement is supported by linguists and has been proven in extensive research studies.

At Atlantic S.E.A.L we want to offer every kid, of every age the opportunity to excel in English. Our Young Kids' Summer Camp is for 3 to 8-year-olds. Here they have the opportunity to mix with Irish children while learning, laughing, playing and making friends all through the medium of the English language.
