But of course studying is not the only thing to do in Ireland or indeed Galway!!
Ireland is on the bucket list of all great travellers, and rightly so. Amid the Atlantic Ocean lies an island where every sight is a postcard and the towns and their people are as fascinating as the next. But what really is it that makes the Emerald Isle such a wonderful place to study?
That is the question of a lifetime as there is an unending amount of answers, which encompasses what a diverse and unique nation Ireland is. Why not see for yourself, take a short break in Galway and stay in any of the Hotels Galway has to offer. Galway is the Cultural Heart of Ireland, attracting enthusiasts of the arts from all over the world to the many festivals and events that are held all year round. One of the most prominent of these is the Galway Arts Festival, bringing together all forms of culture from music to theatre to art and even to comedy. It is an incredibly intense experience that will overwhelm you with the amount of talent and the level of Irish charm that is arguably unmatchable anywhere else.
But these festivals are not the only superb attractions for you to adventure, as the culture is deeply embedded in Galway at all times. Explore the history of the town through its museums, castles and cathedrals to really give you a sense of the preciousness the country radiates. And when the sun goes down, discover the many bars, restaurants and music venues that can keep you coming back every night while never managing to be the exact same. Imagine not only gaining an education from the stellar higher education centres around Ireland but also having access to cultural epicentres such as Galway to truly refine your life experience.
Of course, Ireland is not entirely made up of these contained locations of curiosity but is also famed for its sprawled, unending hills of beauty. When studies are getting on top of you, the ability to escape into the globally envied green countryside can be an incredible experience. Suddenly all your troubles seem so far away as you try to take in the spectacular sights. The grass is always greener in Ireland and the sheer beauty can be enough to make you never want to leave. Being able to escape to the countryside on your weekends can be so peaceful and humbling as you journey the boundless hills and see the gorgeously quaint villages to meet the kindest, friendliest and warmest people on Earth. Hiking, cycling, kayaking and so many more activities are at your disposal all year; you will barely even feel like a student but more of an adventurer.
There’s a whole lot of Ireland out there to discover so whether you’re staying in the Hotels Galway has, to explore the cultural sensations of Galway, or venturing through the green, green grass of the Irish countryside before you make your decision to study in Ireland, it is a guarantee that you will find something special.
