Ireland as a country that never fails to surprise, holds the magic of thousands of years' worth of culture and history, literature and music. It is wild and beautiful, inspiring and exiting, with its pure unspoiled lakes, landscapes and hundreds of islands. With a multi-cultural population, modern Ireland continues to be vibrant, creative and energetic and it is also said to be a land of the most people friendly nation in the whole of Europe.

Ireland known as the silicon valley of Europe with Dublin as its digital capital is a hot destination of choice for innovative minds and also for people aspiring to have a tranquil existence with dignity of life. Being a high-tech hub for Europe and the wider world, with major technological companies such as Intel, Google, Facebook, eBay, Twitter, Hewlett Packard having their European headquarters in the country, Ireland, today, has become the most "globalized" nation in the world .

The country's high volume of trade with other nations and "personal contact" with people internationally (many of whom are connected to Ireland by family ties) were two key factors in gaining this status. Ireland also attracts thousands of international students from across the globe. The educational qualifications available in Ireland are recognized throughout the world, and represent a practical and proven gateway to a wide range of university and career choices. The job sector in Ireland especially the healthcare sector is currently undergoing a significant shift and a lot of policy initiatives are in place to address the mounting staff deficit.
