Why intern in Dublin?

Why do a Turing Scheme funded Internship in Dublin?

Why intern in Dublin?

A short flight from the UK, Dublin is the capital city of Ireland, known for its literary giants, vibrant nightlife, and of course, Guinness. Like all the best cities, Dublin is an exciting mix of tradition and modernity, and the industry is booming: 83% of business leaders believe that their revenue will grow in the next year.

Ireland's economy grew by 3 percent, despite the impact of the Covid pandemic, so an internship funded by the Turing Scheme in Ireland offers an excellent opportunity to learn from their optimism and how to overcome challenges.  

What better internship opportunity could there be to help your CV stand out from the crowd?

Great Craic

The Gaelic word ‘Craic’ (pronounced ‘Crack’) reflects Ireland’s lively, social atmosphere - and it’s infectious. If something is good craic, it’s good fun. It’s no surprise this phrase is so ubiquitous in Dublin, a city famous for Temple Bar. On weekends, people flock here for the pubs, bars, and clubs lining almost every street, each hosting their own live music sessions. Walking through Temple Bar at night is like pressing shuffle on your music list - from acoustic covers of cheesy classics to traditional Irish folk - there’s something for everyone.

Vikings, Fairies, and Revolutions

Ireland’s history traces back over 1000 years, and it’s perceptible in the streets, the architecture and the monuments. With 43 museums, you’ll be able to learn about the ‘Easter Rebellion’ in Dublin’s war for independence, Irish folklore, and the city’s Viking past. Not a fan of museums? Head to the Lidl on Aungier Street for a peak at some Medieval ruins, or venture into the countryside to see the sacred ‘fairy mounds’.

The team are so kind, and the work is really pushing me to improve! I don’t feel like an intern at all but fully part of the team whose ideas are valued, which is nice.

Literary Landmarks

Home to Oscar Wilde, James Joyce and Samuel Beckett, Dublin was named UNESCO City of Literature in 2010 and contains an infinite number of things to do for book lovers. You’ll be able to step back in time at Sweny’s pharmacy, a real location featured in Joyce’s Ulysses, wander around the Museum of Literature, and explore the city’s many historical bookshops. The Abbey, Ireland’s National Theatre, regularly sells front-row seats for under £25.

 

Picturesque Coastlines

While Dublin is the largest city in Ireland, it’s easy to escape the hustle and bustle. With your complimentary travel card, you’ll be able to make free day trips to some beautiful coastal villages just 25 minutes away from the city centre, including Howth, Malahide, and Bray. Howth offers stunning cliff views while Malahide boasts crystal clear water and the famous Malahide Castle, where you’ll find concerts over the Summer.
