Living in Ireland
Ireland's friendly people and unique heritage of culture and literature provides the perfect place for your English language study. You can explore Ireland's beautiful countryside with excursions to Galway, Kerry and Donegal.
Travelling to Ireland is easy with direct flights to Dublin from all major European cities.
Dublin, the capital city of Ireland, is an exciting place to live and learn English.
Dublin is a vibrant, youthful English speaking city with great pubs, restaurants, theatres and music venues.
Dublin is famous for the friendliness of its people. The strong traditional culture creates a pleasant and safe environment in which to live and study English.
Breakfast nowadays is a light meal - fruit juice, cereal, toast and marmalade, tea or coffee.
Home-made brown bread is an Irish speciality and Ireland is renowned for its dairy products and fresh meat and fish.
Lunch on working days is generally a snack and the main meal (meat or fish served with vegetables, dessert) is usually eaten early, 6.00-7.00pm so that everyone is free to go out again for the evening.
In June and July the long, bright evenings until 10.00pm mean that sporting activities can be enjoyed until quite late.
Irish families live in houses with gardens away from the centre of Dublin City so you travel to school by bus or train.
Irish life is friendly and relaxed and you are welcomed as part of the family.
The weather in Ireland is very variable, but is neither very hot nor very cold.
You need strong shoes or boots, a waterproof coat or jacket, jeans and warm sweaters. You may prefer to buy suitable clothes when you get here - woollen garments in particular are good value in Ireland.
