Fáilte, welcome. 

I'm so excited you're here to learn how to say 'how are you?' in Irish Gaelic, because it's such a useful phrase to know. 


Did you know? 

There are three ways to say hello in Irish, because we have three main dialects. 

If you don't have a dialect preference, learning the Munster version will be most useful, as it is what most Irish people will learn at school. It's also what they will understand best in Leinster. So, if you're heading to Dublin, this will the be version for you.
