Lower Cost of Living

In comparison to its neighbouring countries and other popular study destinations, Ireland has one of the lowest costs of living. Dublin is undoubtedly less expensive than major urban areas such as London or New York, which is monumentally advantageous for students who are on a limited budget and need to find low-cost housing. However, similar to the rest of Europe, living in a large city such as Dublin will cost more than smaller cities such as Limerick or Galway, so choose wisely!
