Why Ireland

While Ireland is a dynamic, lively and modern country with a young population and a successful, technologically-orientated economy, it also remains a country steeped in culture and tradition where music, conversation and making friends matters. Ireland is renowned for its beautiful, unspoiled countryside and scenery.

Ireland is a small highly globalised economy, with a large exporting sector, and a significant number of multinational corporations. Ireland is the only English speaking country in the Eurozone. The Irish economy entered its 5th year of economic expansion in 2016 with growth in consumer spending, tax revenue, building and construction and expansion in both manufacturing and services sectors.

Ireland’s English language schools, located throughout the country from the bustling towns and cities to the stunning countryside, are recognised around the world as offering world class facilities and the highest standards of education. Whether you are an executive looking to brush up on your business English, an English language teacher in need of a refresher course, a university student preparing for an exam or a teenager starting from the beginning, Ireland has approved courses and programmes to cater for all levels.
