Good to know
Language: English and Irish (Youth still learn Gaelic in schools to help preserve the language)
Northern Ireland and Ireland are different countries.
Weather (especially on the Atlantic coast) can be predictably unpredictable, so make sure to pack a waterproof jacket and some warm clothes. Short rain boots or shoes that are fine in mud and rain are good. Nothing heavy-duty, but short Chelsea boots will work well and can take you from day to night.
Though it rains a lot, it's also windy, so not many people carry around umbrellas. You are welcome to bring one, but a good jacket and covers for your backpack or luggage might be more practical.
