National Language: Officially, the first language of Ireland is Gaeilge (or 'Irish') but it is mostly spoken in Gaeltacht regions in the west and south west. There are of course many fluent Irish speakers country-wide but for the vast majority of the country English is the dominant spoken language although road signs and public notices appear in both Irish and English throughout the Republic. There has been a surge in interest in speaking Irish country-wide in recent years and most irish people will certainly have at least a few sentences to teach you from their school-days.
