If you want to travel a lot, there are cheap and frequent connections by bus to every major city. Ireland's quite small so you can get everywhere within a few hours.

Housing
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
TCD only offers a couple of rooms on campus, but it's located in the city centre and, at least compared to private arrangements, qstill quite cheap

It's very hard to find a place - I mean, real hard! Especially for foreign students who don't know where to look for rooms ... good luck!
