  • Daily culture: the Irish are welcoming and friendly ways and the social life (the craíc) is great!
  • A good night’s sleep: Ireland is a peaceful country and the weather is mild.
  • Sense of humour: although Ireland is a great little country, we hide our pride behind a “self-deprecating” wit.
