Obviously historically there were tensions but I don't think you'll have (m)any problems nowadays.

You'll receive a warmer welcome here than an Englishman would in Ireland, that's for sure.

For starters, there's bound to be an Irish Society at your uni.

Is your accent particularly strong, or do you speak quickly? It may simply be they struggle to understand you.

It depends on the individual person, their personal preferences and how easy the accents are to understand.
