Who is behind Dalmac

Mr. Elizalde, CEO of DALMAC Language School, had his first Irish experience with his family in 1971. His father, a respected English professor and Director of a prestigious language school in Spain, believed in the power of immersion for language learning. Ireland became the chosen destination.

Mr. Elizalde’s involvement with the Summer language Organisation in Ireland evolved from student to staff member. Taking over from his father, he expanded the business globally, offering English programs for juniors. DALMAC Language School serves as both an agent and a course provider, ensuring quality courses in Ireland and beyond, thanks to its unique position in the market.

Client Testimonials

"My daughter Giada spent two weeks here in July. The school is not very big but the spaces are well distributed and it is equipped both inside and outside. The teachers are kind and very good! they stimulate students to participate actively during the lesson and offer many group work. After two weeks the improvement in the level of English is very considerable. Wonderful experience also in the family. Sorry for my English!😅"

"I have just taken a group of 42 secondary students for a mini stay in Rush, and we couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. All the staff at the school were really helpful and supportive with every single thing we needed; the students valued highly the classes and teachers; and the afternoon and evening activities offered we're interesting and well organized. All students were very happy with their host families. And the town itself, small and quiet, is an ideal destination for this type of activity with teenagers. I strongly recommend It."
