As a student of English in such a demandin university as Oviedo, my knowledge of the language was pretty good so I never had basic problems when it came to understand the locals. But I really improved as regards fluency and the use of informal expressions. I learn a bit everyday as I'm always mixing with Irish people.

It was difficult to understand at the beginning, overall because the differente accents that I found and also because they talk quite fast, but after 2 or 3 months you got used to it and it is easier everyday.

At the university, people were easily understandable. Around Ireland, especially in rural areas, people could be more difficult to understand.

Ireland is an English-speaking country, so I had no problems. I had a lot of fun learning Irish (Gaelic).
