Internships in Dublin, Ireland

Welcome to Dublin!

Everyone raves about Dublin and, like any great city, it genuinely does have something for everyone. It is a modern, hard-working center of commerce and industry; it is a cultural capital; and home to some of Europe's most accomplished artists and academics. If you're interested in the past, Dublin's beautifully preserved mansions, castles, museums, churches, streets, parks, and docks will conjure up historical events dating from the time of the Vikings on through the Easter Rebellion. On the other hand, if the latest in fashion, top restaurants, or club Dj's is more your thing, Dublin offers that and more. Spend some time to get to know the city, its side streets, and suburbs like Howth, Dalkey, or Malahide. Catch a play, watch a hurling match, and spend time talking to people in the pubs. And if Dublin is not enough, there are excellent bus and rail links to other parts of the country as well as to Continental Europe and Britain by ferry or inexpensive student flights.

Why Intern in Dublin?

Dublin is the central hub of the one of the fastest growing economies in Europe. It is an incubator for innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship which has led to the emergence of a vibrant and dynamic start up culture. Dublin is also home to some of the biggest and most recognized brands in the world – including Google, Facebook and Guinness. The city has a rich history and culture; it is the city of James Joyce and Oscar Wilde, U2 and several other icons that have inspired the locals to pursue their creative impulses. Dublin is a city that is progressive and growing but retains strong links to traditional culture – it is also one of the friendliest and safest capitals in Europe. The diverse and expanding economy has created opportunities in many sectors including but not limited to Visual Arts, Business & Marketing, Sports, Recreation & Exercise Science, Social Work, Political Science, Hospitality & Tourism, Communications and Journalism and The Arts & Humanities.

Interning abroad gave a strong breadth towards my professional development, and personal growth that has matured me immensely. This experience greatly aided in securing my first job post graduation in Australia.

Orientation, Excursions, & Activities

Your program will start with a multi-day orientation in Dublin where you will enjoy a city tour and other excursions as well as receive pertinent information about how to be most successful in your internship abroad. Throughout your program, you will have the chance to go on weekend trips, day trips, and optional trips. ISA excursions allow you to explore the timeless, quaint, and historical landscape of the country (and potentially surrounding countries) that you may not have the chance to visit on your own. The locations below are a sample of included and optional excursions that have run in the past. Please know that these are subject to change.
