An Cáife is a peaceful space in which Irish speakers and learners are able to come in and practice their Irish. It’s the only cafe in Derry where all staff are fluent in or learning Irish. Most of the staff members attend classes in Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin. When they are not at classes, they have opportunities to practice what they have learned with each other and with the customers.
Throughout the year, the café welcomes students learning Irish at school. They use the café as a social meeting place and a way to practice their Irish.
