Ireland, on the western edge of Europe, is a land famed for its greenness and for its great variety of scenery. Ireland is a land of myths and legends and ancient history mixed with the modern and vibrant life of Ireland today.
Ireland was known as the "Celtic Tiger" because of the massive economic growth over the last 15 years and is one of the world leaders in high technology, pharmaceutical and airline industries. Our International Financial Services Centre has allowed Ireland to become a financial hub in Europe. Irish people are renowned for their friendliness and hospitality, which greatly contribute to the ease with which overseas students adapt to the Irish way of life. Ireland, a member of the EU since 1973, is a thoroughly modern nation and the high quality of our education system is seen as one of the main contributors to our economic growth.
We have a rich literary and musical tradition. Our colourful history and culture have inspired such literary giants as WB Yeats, Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and many others. Contemporary writers and poets such as Roddy Doyle, Paul Durcan, Frank McCourt, Maeve Binchy and Seamus Heaney write about Ireland today while U2, Westlife, the Script and the Chieftains are known worldwide for contemporary and traditional music.
The Irish interest in sport is legendary. You can go golfing, sailing, horseriding, play football and tennis. A great way to get to know the Irish is to talk about sport and what is happening in the sporting world.
