The people of Ireland are renowned for their hospitality and welcoming nature, and the pub remains an integral part of Irish culture. Shaking hands is the most common way of greeting people, but it is very informal. While the casual dress is standard throughout the country, many people tend to dress up if going out for the evening.
Christianity is the largest religion in Ireland with approximately 84% of the population belonging to the Roman Catholic Church. Other religions in Ireland include Protestantism, Judaism and Islam.
Irish (a form of Gaelic) is the official language of Ireland, however, English is widely spoken by most people.
