backpacking through europe--> studying abroad in ireland

this summer I will be backpacking through Europe for a month (mostly in Schengen countries). I will fly into Budapest and make my way slowly towards London by train and from there take a ferry into Dublin to meet up with my study abroad orientation program.

I'm a US resident (aka non EU resident) and I know all the things I have to bring with me to enter Ireland to study abroad(letter of offer from my school, proof of payment for the school, proof of medical insurance, proof I have funds to support my stay, return ticket home)

I guess what I'm worried about is those are all the things I know I need if I was flying directly from the US to Ireland. but is it different if I've been traveling around?

And also, when it comes to proof that I have funds to support my stay, they want a printed statement from my bank, which is something I'd have to get before leaving. By the time I present it to Irish Immigration it will be about a month old, does anyone think this will be a problem?

Any advice on entering/exiting countries and if I need to do anything differently from more experienced people would be much appreciated! This is my first long term trip abroad so I want to be as prepared as possible.

Thanks!
