From beaches to mountains, historic castles to dynamic cities, Oscar Wilde to U2, there is so much to see and do while you are in Ireland! Go green at the St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Dublin, eat a full Irish breakfast, learn the Irish step dance, explore the beautiful countryside or an ancient monument, enjoy a pint of Guinness at a pub or go to one of the numerous festivals celebrating anything from food to literature. Ireland, rich in cultural heritage and breath-taking beauty, is the perfect place to improve your English and gain valuable work experience. English is an art which Irish people craft and use very naturally in the workplace, at home and when socialising with friends. It is easy to understand why George Bernard Shaw said ” the best English is spoken in Ireland”.
Receive a warm Irish welcome with the Irish people who retain the old values of warmth, friendliness, and the importance of the family unit. The Irish are a relaxed people, happy to share a drink, some conversation and invite you to join the craic (FUN), an Irish expression for having the time of your life.

Accessible by air from all major European cities, Ireland has a population of only five million people. It also enjoys one of the cleanest environments in Europe with a mild and temperate maritime climate of cool summers and warm winters.

Come to Ireland for your internship, get an enterprising work experience, improve your English, and join the growing number of international students that come to Ireland every year and are often reluctant to leave.
Dublin, the capital, began as a Viking trading post known as Dubh Linn over 1000 years ago. It is now home to more than 1 million people. To the west of the city are hills and mountains, to the east the sea with fishing harbours and beautiful beaches.

It is a cultural city steeped in history, tradition and is home to some of the great literary personalities of Shaw, Yeats, Joyce, and Beckett. It is also the source of musical talent ranging from the traditional Dubliners and the Chieftains to the more contemporary U2, Enya, The Corrs and Westlife.
Its many attractions range from museums and art galleries to the famous Guinness Brewery and Temple Bar which is the centre for restaurants and nightlife. Street-side pubs and cafes are alive with buzz of gregarious conversations and traditional Irish entertainment. Indeed visitors often find themselves engaged in diverse discussions of sports, music, politics and literature.
