Ten things we love about living in Ireland

We may moan a lot about the weather, and the government, and the roads – ok, we moan about everything, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love our little island! Here are ten reasons why:

The people
It doesn’t matter where you are, if the people aren’t nice, you’re not going to have a great time. Luckily for us, Irish people are the best! Dublin was even voted as one of the friendliest cities in the world – now THAT’S something to be proud of!

The weather
Sure, we moan about it when it rains. But that doesn’t mean we don’t secretly love being forced to stay indoors and watch Netflix all day. We’re also big fans of boots and cardigans – two things we could never wear if we lived somewhere hot!

The humour
Ever been on holidays and thought, “This place may be pretty, but it just isn’t as much craic as home”? That’s because no country has the same humour as Ireland, we are crusaders of the craic industry.

Breakfast rolls
Did you know you can’t get breakfast rolls in England? They have no idea what they’re missing out on! Same goes for chicken fillet rolls – we just couldn’t live without them!

The phrases
Those little words and phrases just make life more fun, don’t they? We wouldn’t want to live in a world where we couldn’t say we did something ‘arseways’. Sure that’d be no craic.

The lack of deadly insects
Normal spiders cause us enough stress – if they could actually hurt us aswell? We just wouldn’t be able to cope.

The lads
They may have been voted as the ugliest men in the world or some such nonsense, but we love our Irish lads. We wouldn’t change them for anything! (Except maybe making them a bit more romantic, or stylish, or…)

The word ‘grand’
It’s such a good word for when something is a bit better than ok but not as good as fantastic. Sure you’re grand. It’s grand. That’s grand. It’ll be grand. We love it.

Our terrible Eurovision entries
They always give us a good laugh every year!

The scenery
Ireland is really pretty – even though it rains all the time. You can keep you plane ticket to Australia, thanks!
