Hispanic Adventures


Click here for the programme of the Spanish summer school 23-27 July 2018

The Hispanic Society of Carrickfergus adheres to the General Data Protection Act 2018.  I am in the process of collating email addresses in preparation for the new General Data Protection Act 2018. If you would like to add yourself to the list, just email me your name and surname, email address and telephone number and I will add you to the list.




Carrickfergus is a small seaside town on the north Antrim coast.  It is a lovely little place, with a beautiful castle.  We started investigating the links between Northern Ireland and Spain and were delighted to have found several, some of which we will visit on the tour during the Spanish summer school which will take place from 23-28 July.

This is the first event of the newly launched Hispanic Society of Carrickfergus.

Some of the aims of the Society are to seek cultural and heritage links between Northern Ireland and Spain, to promote those links to a wide audience and to raise the profile of Carrickfergus as a tourism destination.

The benefits of the Society are:

  • to offer Spanish lessons at a reduced rate
  • a card will be provided with the following:
    • Discounted trips to Spain
    • Access to Spanish books not in the library system
    • Free talks
    • Regular newsletter
    • Discounted Spanish lessons in Spain
    • Discount on tours organised by the Society
    • Discount at the Society’s events

The founder of the Society, Tina Irving, is  an active member of the local Spanish community with links with all kinds of organisations. This summer the Society’s first event will be  a summer school which will take place from 23-27 July.  There will be a tour to the “Armada” tree and tapas cost (£30), language lessons, a flamenco show and dinner, talks and finally a big fiesta!  Join us….

This is the first activity of LetsGoWest, a partnership between commercial and voluntary sector bodies working together to bring economic benefits to Carrickfergus and the wider community of Ireland, both North and South.
