From Liverpool, travel isn't far to either Scotland or Wales, and both have language schools with summer courses if I'm not mistaken.
The celtic languages are sufficiently not like english that you'll need all the motivation you can get to work through the difficulties. If you're motivated by music, landscape, literature, history, your ancestors' roots, or a loved, living person doesn't matter. Go where your heart wants to go.
(Also, the celtic languages are sufficiently like each other that if you want to learn a second one in a few years it will probably be easier than the first. Closest to each other are the gaelics on the one hand -- manx (extinct), scottish and irish gaelic -- and welsh, breton and kornish (in the process of being revived) on the other, but speakers of either group of celtic languages have told me that they recognize many similarities to the respective other group as well, once they dig a bit deeper into the grammar.)
Which i the easiest?
