Dublin Internships

Immerse yourself in the beautiful and historic capital city of Ireland with an 8 or 12-week internship in Dublin, Ireland this summer, fall, or spring. Though it may be brimming with fascinating Irish culture and history, Dublin is very much an international city bustling with people from all over the world and featuring multinational companies, offering terrific opportunities in entrepreneurship, marketing, non-profits, and law. Dublin is a fantastic city for both first-time travelers and seasoned veterans, and not to mention is within close proximity to the rest of Europe for your weekend travels.

We offer some of the best internships Ireland has to offer. An internship in Dublin is the perfect way to enjoy the undeniable magic of this country and pick up some new professional skills while you’re at it. Dublin is also the host city for the entrepreneurship-focused Project Innovation summer program.

Many have been inspired by Ireland’s captivating culture and lush greenery including James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw, just to name a few. Dublin is a unique mixture of both old and new with ancient castles alongside modern architecture, and colorful doorways on top of cobblestone streets. Once you experience the majesty of Dublin’s beauty, you will understand why so many artists, authors, and musicians have called it home. Public transportation in Dublin is very user-friendly; the most popular forms of getting around within the city are through bus, rail, and tram. The rail is also known as the DART, which is an inexpensive way to travel within and outside of the city. The tram, also known as the LUAS, is a quick and easy way to get around within the city. If you plan on using public transit during your internship in Ireland, in order to make it more seamless it is worth investing in a Leap Card which is valid for bus, train and tram services.

    Throughout my life I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Ireland, so when I found out I could get an internship and live there for a summer I did everything I could to make it happen. It’s a great place to be and I felt at home almost immediately after my arrival.

  • Malcolm

    I am far more willing to go out and explore. I am more open to other cultures and have an entirely new perspective on people around the world. I traveled to Brussels, Berlin and Rome while I was here. Without this program I would likely have never gone abroad and never had these opportunities. I wasn’t sheltered, but I certainly did not have these opportunities and having this experience will change my life forever.
