English-Irish dictionary Focloir.ie.

If you’re learning to speak Irish (such as with our Bitesize lessons), you’ll soon reach the need for a dictionary.

Today we’d like to highlight to English-Irish dictionary found at focloir.ie.

(By the way, if you’re looking for an overview of Irish dictionaries, see our Irish dictionaries post.)

Focloir.ie is an English-Irish dictionary

This dictionary is for when you know the word in English, but need to find the word in Irish (Gaeilic). For example, you might want to create post-it notes around your room with Irish label (like Audrey described on our discussion podcast).

Here’s what I like about focloir.ie:

  • It has pronunciation audio files in the three dialects of the Irish language
  • It features a wide range of terms of phrase
  • It gives grammatical information, good for advanced learners
  • It gives extra usage example, like the plural of the word

    Thanks for suggesting this site; I use it all the time now. I especially like that I can hear the pronunciation. I just wish there was Irish-English translation as well.
