Founded in 1982 by Dr. Mick Moloney, Augusta Heritage Center’s Irish Week is the oldest week of its kind in the United States.  For thirty-two years, Augusta has consistently attracted the world’s finest instructors to immerse students in the very best of Irish craft, folklore, music and dance.

Irish Week continues our tradition of bringing the world’s finest instructors to immerse students in the very best of Irish craft, folklore, music, and dance.

Students register for two subjects and meet for intensive classes each morning and afternoon for five days except Friday afternoon. Evening activities include sessions, Ceili and set dances in our beautiful open-air dance pavilion, and world-class concerts on Tuesday & Thursday nights. Students are invited to sign up for an optional evening mini-course. Anyone with a passion for traditional Irish culture will find this year’s week a delightful and engrossing experience!

All classes (except dance and vocals) are intended for those who can already play their instrument to some extent and are ready to start learning Irish style, technique, and repertoire.

Students register for two classes for the week, one for the morning period and one for the afternoon period. See the Irish Week Class Schedule to determine when classes are offered. Each class builds upon information presented the previous day.

2014 Tuition: $450
