Living abroad in Dublin

Finance interns abroad in Dublin will fall in love with the beautiful city, which encourages locals to go outdoors. For one, there’s always a beautiful park nearby where you can enjoy a sunny afternoon. In fact, Dublin boasts more green areas, per square kilometer, than any other European capital. Dublin’s cycling infrastructure is also notable, for interns who like to get around on bike.

Embracing Irish culture and traditions

Ireland has produced its fair share of literary giants, particularly considering the country’s small population size. Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, C. S. Lewis, William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde are among the numerous legendary Irish authors. Finance interns can get a sense of these great writers and their accomplishments by spending some time at The Dublin Writer’s Museum.

Irish culture is celebrated and recognized around the world. Interns will get an up-close look at these traditions, legends and folklore. The leprechaun, for example, is a celebrated Irish character, originating from Gaelic traditions. However interns in Dublin will learn that there’s a lot more to Irish culture after a visit to the National Folklore Collection.

Dublin’s rich history

Finance interns will learn to appreciate Dublin’s rich history and the buildings standing today that help tell the story of Ireland’s complicated past. The city and region have been inhabited since 140 AD, conquered and settled by various groups. Both the Vikings and the Scandinavians, for example, inhabited the area, which was followed by the Norman invasion of Ireland. Dublin’s development, however, was influenced mostly by the Georgian period during English rule. It was once the second largest city of the British Empire. Much of Dublin’s history can be identified in its historical structures like the Dublin Castle (1204), the Christ Church Cathedral (1030) and St Patrick’s Cathedral (1191).
