LIVING IN IRELAND
Another reason for studying in Ireland is the Five-Star student experience. Ireland is considered ‘The World’s Friendliest Country’ by the Lonely Planet Guide and is an extremely easy place to settle into as a new student. It is a beautiful country with an unspoiled natural landscape – full of rugged mountains, rivers, lakes and magnificent beaches. Ireland is ideal for hiking, cycling, surfing, golfing or sailing.
It’s a great place for students! Almost 40% of the population is under the age of 40 and Dublin, Cork and Galway are all vibrant cosmopolitan cities with great restaurants, cafes and nightlife. Ireland is a country steeped in history and culture and the country has numerous music, film, drama and literature festivals, attracting visitors from all over the world. The country is renowned for its singers, musicians, writers and poets and Irish dancing was launched on the world stage by Riverdance.
Tourism and agriculture have always been an important part of the Irish economy. Ireland has a reputation for its great food, which is hardly surprising considering the plentiful supply of fresh produce from the country’s lush pasturelands.
A growing economy, good airline connections, and a great quality of life are just some of the reasons why people from all over the world come to live and work in Ireland.
