Intern in Ireland

It's said that Ireland, once visited, is never forgotten, and for once the Blarney rings true. The Irish landscape has a mythic resonance, the country's history is almost tangible, and its people seem to exist on earth expressly to restore faith in humanity. The weather may sometimes give you the impression that you're swimming through an airborne ocean, but the truly luminous greens, luxuriant wildflowers, and weekends spent enjoying yourself will more than console you as you undertake an internship in this great land.  Work side by side with your Irish counterparts during the week and on the weekend visit the Cliffs of Moher at the edge of the sea or the Blarney Castle, famous for the ‘Blarney Stone’ which can grant you the “gift of eloquence!”

Note: Internships in this program are unpaid.

I have had such a good time here, I am not ready to leave and get back to the real world at all. Thankfully I have had many opportunities to explore and travel on my days off and my hotel has been very supportive of me seeing as much of Ireland as possible.
