My Experience in Ireland

A common French expression says “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence”. It usually doesn’t have a literal utilization. Except in Ireland. Ireland offers amazing landscapes, hills, and grass as far as your eyes can see. There is not a lot of words we can use to describe magnificent Ireland.

You will experience your proper Irish life.

For sure, Ireland’s weather is not Florida’s. You have to keep in mind that, thanks to rainy days, you can live days like this:

What I have learned in Ireland

I only stayed in Ireland for a few months but Irish people taught me a lot. As a foreigner, you will be asked a lot about your culture and habits, they are polite and interested in others. It is not rare to connect with people at a pub, in the street, at work and ending up spending the evening listening to music, dancing or drinking.
I’ve visited a lot of countries but the Irish people are the friendliest I’ve ever met. When you travel, you always have some ups and downs, things that are not going the way you want them to.
Once, I went for a three-day hike around the Sheep Head Way (South of Ireland) with one of my friend. Hiking during the day and enjoying one of the most beautiful landscapes I’ve ever seen and camping at night. Irish people offered us to stay at their places, to share our story or even a meal. Ireland is the only one country I felt very safe, even at night.

Sheep’s Head Way

Irish people taught me to enjoy every day, from Monday until Sunday. Every day deserves to be awesome.

Advice for anyone who’s planning to move to Ireland

If you are from Europe, America or even Australia, Ireland is not that different from your home country. In Ireland, you will experience another culture without being completely lost.

Beside friendly people, you can easily meet a lot a foreigner (French and Spanish most of the time). During my journey, I’ve spent no weekend chilling at home. Even if you’re going out on Thursday and Friday nights, everyone wants to enjoy the countryside. By bus, train, car or bike, you can visit Cork, Dublin, Killarney, Connemara, Dingle, Kerry… And the list goes on.

Few things you have to know:

– The all-time you are going to live there, you’ll risk your life when crossing a road. In Ireland, to the left, you must drive!
– Do not be afraid of Irish accent! After a while, you’ll even think “I wish I could have it”.
