I was thinking about getting it. I've completed "Learning Irish" (Agus teastaíonn uaim neart le foghlaim go fóill!). Will I get anything more out of Turas Teanga?

I haven't seen Turas Teanga so I cannot say for sure. One thing you will get from Turas Teanga is the opportunity to hear different dialects - after having completed Learning Irish you might still be puzzled if you would hear me speaking, or is "N'fheadar an rabhabhar ag dul óm tigh lesna naomhóig" already natural too you?

Still, from what I know the level reached with Turas Teanga is far below that of Learning Irish. That's the impression I've got anyway. I'm thinking of buying the DVDs myself, but only to get to hear people speak in their own dialects about different places in na Gaeltachtaí.

'Turas Teanga' is done with a communicative approach, so you get real, everyday speech that you could easily use. If you've completed 'Learning Irish', you know how to exclaim 'A rifíneachaí bradacha!' Or 'You thieving ruffians!', but TT will give you some stuff that you can actually use or hear on the streets today. 'Sé sin mo dhá phinginse, ar aon nós,
