Some of Europe’s most recommended cities to visit are in Ireland, and these places tend to attract a huge number of international students every single year. For a one-of-a-kind experience when it comes to studying abroad, Irish cities are keen to please! Ireland has some great traditions and customs to become a part of, such as the world famous St. Patrick’s Day and other patriotic calendar days, bizarre superstitions, interesting folklore stories and general public merriment! Indulging in Ireland’s past, both historic heritage and mythological beliefs, it will really help you to become a part of the jolly, sociable country.
If you love exploring the great outdoors then you will be right at home here in Ireland. Every inch of the country is wonderfully picturesque, with acres of magical green countryside, mesmerizing steep coastal cliffs that conceal quiet, ‘secret’ beaches, and an abundance of quaint and charming old villages to discover- it’s definitely a dream come true for your Instagram!
Aside from the great lakes, huge mountain and some of natures finest national parks, the other thing Ireland is famous for among the students generation, is its night-life. There are endless bars, pubs and clubs to test out, and you’ll meet lots of other international students that are also on English courses in Ireland to join in on the shenanigans. In Irish cities such as Dublin, you can find popular and vibrant clubs and bars that have a really cosmopolitan and modern feel, as well as having an abundance of traditional Irish pubs. Its likely that many cities around the world you’ve been to have had there own adaptation of an Irish pub, but it cannot compare to a night (or even day!) in a real Irish pub, drinking good beer surrounded by the passionate and witty locals and listening to some proper Irish music- there’s no atmosphere like it. And of course, you’ll drink some, or a lot, of Guinness. Steady on the Guinness though, the Irish will drink you under the table every time!
