Ready to make the Celtic Tiger purr? Ireland boasts one of the highest standards of living in Europe, so it’s no surprise that Dublin consistently ranks as one of the most popular study abroad destinations. Whether you want to adopt a lyrical accent, explore the natural beauty of the coast, steep in history amidst the hustle and bustle of Dublin’s city center, or work with trendsetting technology, the vast diversity of this powerful island allows for endless study abroad possibilities.

While Dublin may still be better known for its shadowy pubs and freshly-poured Guinness than its tech scene, things are changing quickly as Internet heavyweights like Google, Facebook, and Twitter have set up shop next to scrappy startups like SumUP and Dropbox. But if you’re more interested in old lit than high tech while studying abroad in Dublin, have no fear. Though the Trinity College Library is already enough to make any bookworm’s heart soar, your walks between classes will be in the footsteps of Beckett, Joyce, Wilde, and Swift. Time to pen your own travel tales!

Ireland’s international impact extends far beyond the bookshelf. It’s a nation of mythic beauty, historical intrigue, and cultural integrity — and its rate of global influence shows no signs of stopping. Throw in staggering cliffs, salty-fresh sea air, first-rate education, rainbows, hearty pub food, and yes, sheep, the only question you’re left with is: which Irish university do I choose for studying abroad in Ireland?
