Ireland is a small island off the west coast of England, on the western side of Europe.  It is an English speaking country and has a population of approximately 4.6 million people.


It is a wonderful country, with beautiful scenery, warm and friendly people, vibrant business community and entrepreneurial spirit, and a great culture and heritage.


One of the great benefits of Ireland recognised by the many thousands of Chinese people already living here is the pleasant climate, with mild winters and very pleasant Summer temperatures that are not too hot or unbearable.


The capital city of Ireland, Dublin, is a bustling and vibrant city, home to approximately 1.3 million people, and is very easy to get around on foot.


The city hosts many famous tourist attractions including the Guinness Storehouse; Dublin Castle; Trinity College and the Book of Kells; some of Europe’s finest examples of Georgian houses and architecture; Dublin Zoo; Stephens Green; the Phoenix Park the largest walled park in Europe and home to the All Ireland Polo Club, the oldest horse polo club in the world; and Grafton St., the main shopping district in Dublin and boasting many luxury shops and brands.


Some of the many famous natural scenic places to visit in Ireland include Glendalough and the Wicklow mountains, the Cliffs of Moher, the Blarney Stone, the lakes of Killarney and Dingle peninsula in Co. Kerry, Connemara and the Aran islands, Galway, and the Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland.


Other famous tourist attractions and events include Ashford Castle, Newgrange – an ancient temple and passage tomb, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site; the many Irish Horse Racing festivals, the Carlingford Oyster festival, and the many challenging golf courses throughout the country.


Ireland also has many romantic little towns and villages, scenic beauty spots, romantic hotels, castles and restaurants and excellent luxury shopping and exquisite hand crafted jewellery for you to enjoy a romantic honeymoon or a memorable holiday.



Irish Culture & Music

Irish culture has had a significant influence on other cultures, particularly in the fields of literature and music, and to a lesser degree, science and education.  Famous Irish musicians, authors and poets include U2, Enya, The Cranberries, The Corrs, Westlife, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Seamus Heaney, Brendan Kennelly.  Riverdance, the Irish dancing and music show, is famous throughout the world and is very popular in China.


A strong indigenous culture exists, as expressed for example through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language, alongside main stream Western culture, such as contemporary music and drama, and a culture shared in common with Great Britain, as expressed through sports such as soccer, rugby, horse racing, and golf, as well as the English language.


Ireland Education

Ireland has a very good education system.  It has a number of leading private middle and high schools, and a number of leading Universities including Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, Dublin City University and the internationally recognized Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business, one of the top 100 global business schools according to The Financial Times ranking of full-time MBA programmes.  The School, which already has a strong contingent of Chinese students, was ranked 20th among the top MBAs in Europe and is among less than 50 schools worldwide that have been consistently ranked in the top 100 over the last thirteen years.  It is one of less than 50 schools worldwide to hold triple accreditation from the US, Europe and the UK accrediting bodies, an attractive proposition for Chinese wanting to study in Europe and gain internationally recognized qualifications.


Ireland Business and as an Entry Hub to Europe

Ireland has a very vibrant and entrepreneurial business community.  Although a small island, Ireland has excellent transport links to England (only a 50 minute flight from London Heathrow airport), mainland Europe and the US.  Indeed many leading international financial, IT and pharmaceutical/healthcare companies have chosen Ireland as their European head office.  These include Dell, Intel, Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, EBay, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Abbott Laboratories and Eli Lily to name just a few


Ireland is also a very attractive location for Chinese companies looking to expand into the European Union (EU), the low 12.5% tax rate on profits is particularly attractive and the Irish Government also has a range of special grant and incentive schemes for foreign companies.
