Green with Envy: Why you should travel to Ireland this summer

We all need some more good luck now these days! With travel getting easier and Europe opening up, here’s just a few reasons why Ireland is one of the ultimate student travel destination of 2023.

1. The Beauty of the Emerald Isle Grass covered cliffs in Ireland

Ireland is gorgeous! Every metric inch of the country looks like it’s straight out of a postcard. From bluffs to pastures, the natural beauty of this country is something to put the rest of Europe to shame. Visit the castles and cathedrals that span the Irish coasts, and for nature lovers, tour the cliffs of Moher and Skellig Islands.

Explore this beautiful country with Ireland Tours & Trips from TourRadar. 


2. Irish Whiskey, Traditional GuinnessA black gate with the Guinness beer logo on it

It just tastes better from the source. Ireland offers a vast array of tours of distilleries and breweries, including the original Guinness brewery. Or, if you prefer the night life, get all that plus more at the Temple Bar. And hey, the drinking age is just 18. 

Become a coinsurer of Ireland’s best whiskey’s and beers with these great distillery tours and pub crawls.


3. It is a great place to be a college student A two storied library at Trinity College in Dublin

If all that isn’t enough, Irish Universities are a great place to study. In addition to the prestige of any university for a semester abroad, Irish Visa sponsorship and work-study are some of the most obtainable in Europe. The Trinity campus tour is a must, but you don’t need to be a student to appreciate any Irish universities’ beautiful campuses and architecture.


4. It is “The Green Gateway”A red building in the Temple Bar area of Dublin

Ireland is one of shortest European flights from the United States, which makes it the perfect starting point for a trip through Europe. Once you’ve shaken off the jetlag and had a pint and explored this fabulous island, you can continue your European adventure with any quick flight connecting you to cities across the UK and continental Europe.

If you are thinking of traveling Europe with a Eurail Pass, the Irish Rail system and select ferries to other countries are included in the price of your pass!
