Embracing Ireland’s culture & traditions
Irish culture has a lot to offer fashion interns abroad.

Ireland is known around the world for its unique and rich cultural traditions, particularly myths, folklore and legends. The leprechaun is perhaps the most well-known character coming from Gaelic traditions.

After a visit to the National Folklore Collection, interns will see just how many different myths have been passed down for centuries.
Discovering Dublin’s history
In addition to their fashion internship in Dublin, interns will also be able to sink their teeth into the rich regional history around the city. Dublin has had many different inhabitants across the centuries, starting all the way back in 140 AD. Both the Vikings and the Scandinavians had settled the area and then came the Norman invasion. During English rule, Dublin’s development was influenced by the Georgian period and the city was at one time the British Empire’s second largest! Dublin’s cultural influences have been captured by its many historical structures including the Dublin Castle (1204), the Christ Church Cathedral (1030) and St Patrick’s Cathedral (1191).
Few things can top a journey through Ireland’s captivating countryside. International fashion interns will be close to many picturesque spots, being based in Dublin.
