Best Travel Options for Study Abroad student in Athens

Hey all,
I am about to be studying in Athens, Greece for the next 4 months, and I am wondering what the best forms of travel are between Athens and European countries such as France, Italy, Amsterdam, Poland, Austria, and Germany. Because i would only get to travel on weekends and some weeks, is it best to by a eurorail pass or just go trip by trip? Is flying better in some cases?

Also, how does the ferry system work in terms of international travel?

Thanks so much!

Dublin to amsterdam

I am traveling through Europe her soon. I found that the cheapest flights from America to Dublin. I am going to bu a Eurail pass also. So my question is if I fly to Dublin, then stay for a couple days, how to I get to a city such as Amsterdam? I saw that the train is in Ireland but, do I need to pay extra to take a ferry to the closest city on the mainland that has the Eurail? How much would that cost?
