Welfare: The Student Welfare department is available in all the institutions across Ireland. They provide information to students about a range of concerns including; mental well-being, crisis pregnancy, sexual health awareness, suicide intervention and non-academic issues. Dedicated officers can also provide the students with information about a number of additional support services both locally and nationally and help connect students to these organizations, should they need the support.
Health: The Irish healthcare system is divided into public and private services. Both services are provided by GPs and the Health Service Executive (HSE) is responsible for providing public and community health services. There are three types of hospitals: HSE hospitals, voluntary hospitals and private hospitals.
Dublin and Belfast have comprehensive local bus networks, as do some other larger towns.
The Dublin Area Rapid Transport (DART) rail line runs roughly the length of Dublin’s coastline, while the Luas tram system has two popular lines. Taxis tend to be expensive Uber is in Dublin and is expected to spread elsewhere
Drive:The big decision in getting around Ireland is to go by car or use public transport. Your own car will make the best use of your time and help you reach even the most remote of places
Bus: The bus network, made up of a mix of public and private operators, is extensive and generally quite competitive – although journey times can be slow and lots of the points of interest outside towns are not served.
Rail: The rail network is quicker but more limited, serving only some major towns and cities. Both buses and trains get busy during peak times; you’ll need to book in advance to be guaranteed a seat.
