If you’re coming from Spain, Italy, South of France, you need to be prepared for the change in the weather when crossing the Celtic Sea. And it starts with a proper coat and a good umbrella. We’re not going to lie to you : you might get wet. In the summer 2007, it rained 40 days… straight ! But don’t the beautiful plants need flower to grow ?
Irish people are know to speak very fast and it may be confusing at first but don’t worry, you’ll get used to the Irish accent, which can be really different whether you’re in Dublin or in Cork. But you will see, Irish people will strive to make themselves understand.
It is not a myth, Irish people are the nicest. You might have noticed it at the 2016 Euros in France, when Irish supporters gave a whole show during all the competition. Remember them singing a lullaby in the subway ? Told you, they’re the nicest.
Coming in Ireland, you must know that you will not find a lot of big cities. Except Dublin, Cork or Galway, Ireland is mostly countryside, beautiful landscapes and nature. The Connemara, the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry… Prepare yourself to travel… into the wild !
