The McCracken Summer School

Located in North Belfast, Áras Mhic Reachtain hosts the McCracken Summer School during the last week of July every year.

The McCracken Summer School is a pivotal occasion in Belfast’s social and cultural calendar. Its contribution to the Irish language, both North and South, cannot be underestimated.  People flock to the Summer School from all over Ireland as well as the four corners of the globe.

Up to 3,000 people pass through the doors of  Áras Mhic Reachtain during this week; attending the events, language classes, singing workshops and the wide range of concerts available in the evenings.

Established 17 years ago the McCracken Summer School is an outstanding festival not to be missed!
