Personal recommendation
The University is OK althoug sometimes it was more like a school. But facilities are very modern and technology is up to date. Bad is that the campus is so far from the city.

Final comments
Get an ISIC card and travel as much as you can by Bur(the dog one). There are several nice Festivals in Ireland. Try to go to the Jazz Festival in Cork and be sure to see Galway and Belfast.

In my domain (Engineer, Telecommunications...) English is essential. That's why I chose to come in Dublin. Besides, here, it's very easy to speak with anybody, so you can progress pretty quickly.
