I suppose buying only in shops like Lidl or Tesco saves a lot of money. Try also stay of the drink cause this is the area which consumes hell of a lot of money

Course recommendations
One has to be really organized to get a hold of all the notes and handouts that go through. But the course itself is not that hard.

Final comments
It is better not to get sick there, the ques are enormous. It is a good Idea to get a bike cause busses are not very popular. Try to get a flat mate who is not from your country of birth cause it is harder to learn the language. Travel a lot cause Ireland is beautiful.
