Ireland is famous for its green landscapes, its friendly people and its history. It is an ideal alternative to the UK and it attracts more and more students looking for a lower cost of living destination.
It may be beneficial for students to apply for an International Student Identity Card (ISIC) as this can assist in reduced costs in several areas such as transport. Train and bus transport are generally readily available in the major towns.
In major cities, there should be dedicated bike lanes for those who choose this form of local transport. While a waterproof jacket is a must (it rains twice as much in the west as in the east), a range of outdoor activities are available including hill walking, biking, pony-trekking, and even surfing.
There's quite a good spread of ATMs but it's always a good idea to carry a sensible amount of cash around with you.
