Ireland is a uniquely enchanting land, where legend and reality combine.
With its rugged countryside, windswept cliffs, majestic woods and iconic castles, the untouched scenery of the Emerald Isle is beyond compare. National Geographic declared Ireland’s walks to be the best in the world, and adventurous pursuits such as surfing, sea kayaking, paragliding, rock climbing, caving and mountain biking are available throughout the land.
Ireland’s landscape, history and folklore may be ancient, but its population is young and vibrant, with 40% aged under 25. Combine this with the Irish reputation for friendliness, plus the world-famous pubs and live music scene, and you have a perfect destination for the English language learner.
As well as everything else it offers, Ireland’s capital Dublin is a UNESCO City of Literature, home of great writers such as Oscar Wilde and Jonathan Swift. James Joyce may be the city’s favourite author — The Modern Library named his epic work ‘Ulysses’ the best novel of the 20th Century.
