Dive into the cultural hotpot that is the beautiful and historic capital city of Ireland, with a 4, 8 or 12-week Irish Gap Year Internship in Dublin, Ireland. Dublin is an awe-inspiring city for both first timers and seasoned travellers, and is within close proximity to the rest of Europe for your weekend breaks, although with our many weekend adventures away you may not have time!
Dublin is an iconic city both in Europe and the world. There are all the things you know about it, but then so much more to discover. The city manages to combine just the right amount of international big city attitude with a local small town vibe. Dublin is a hive of arts, music, culture and night-life. There is always something happening. It’s the hometown to some of the world’s best known musicians – U2, The Script, Thin Lizzy. The city offers a wealth of history from churches, castles and fine period houses. There are plenty of parks and beaches to spend a day soaking up the atmosphere and an endless variety of places to eat. Most importantly there’s always the locals – endlessly chatty – they will make you feel at home.
