I came across this home-course for beginners on the Gael Linn website. It is a book/tapecourse for beginners, and I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about it or has any insight on its worth.

I've got a copy of "Gaeilge agus Fáilte" and personally I don't care for it much. They claim it works for self-study, but the fact of the matter is that it won't make much sense without a knowledgeable instructor. It is also, as most Irish courses seem to be, very conversation-oriented. Some people prefer that, some don't.
I lead a study group with three other people and they feel the same way. We switched to "Learning Irish" and everyone's been much happier with that.
Hope this helps a bit.
