IT internships in Dublin offer young people the opportunity to work among established IT professionals in the Irish capital and gain real-world, international work experience. Up-and-coming IT professionals should strongly consider this chance to explore Dublin, prepare for the professional world and live out an exciting, international adventure.
IT interns in Dublin will benefit from their international professional experience in a number of ways. One major perk is becoming part of a network of talented, young professionals. The Intern Group attracts rising professionals from every corner of the globe. Interns can attend intern events and meet other young people from different fields and backgrounds.
Living abroad in Dublin
IT interns abroad in Dublin will fall in love with the beautiful, green city, which encourages locals to spend their time outdoors whenever the weather is good. There's always a beautiful park nearby to 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. The city also has a safe and reliable public transportation system which interns will find easy to navigate. In terms of living arrangements, IT interns will live with other interns, young professionals and students with easy access to public transit for commuting to their internship. In Dublin, English is the language used in professional settings, and spoken by the vast majority of citizens, so interns shouldn't have a problem communicating with locals.
"I am Irish by race but the English have condemned me to talk the language of Shakespeare." -Oscar Wilde
Embracing Irish culture and traditions
The Irish are proud of their culture, history, traditions and contributions to the world. Among these many contributions are the numerous brilliant literary minds coming from Ireland over the last few centuries. Though Ireland's population is relatively small, the country still managed to export the likes of Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, C. S. Lewis, William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde. It takes a quick trip to Dublin's Writer's Museum to realize just how many famous authors come from the region.
Even though Irish culture is recognized and celebrated in many parts of the world, IT interns will get the chance to understand the true authentic Irish traditions during their time in Dublin. There are so many beliefs, practices, legends and folklore that go beyond what has been exported, like the widely popular Gaelic character, the leprechaun. After a visit to the National Folklore Collection in Dublin interns will have a much better sense of what true Irish culture and traditions are all about.
Dublin also is known for having a diverse live entertainment scene. The Abbey Theatre and the Grand Canal Theatre are always showing something wonderful. The city is also good for a night of live music. You can find all sorts of music in the city, from loud and boisterous rock concerts to intimate performances with pipes and fiddles.
A major perk of picking Dublin for an internship abroad is that interns will have the chance to travel around Ireland. People from all over the world travel to Ireland to enjoy the country's breathtaking parks and countryside. Located relatively close, on the weekends and after their internship is over, IT interns will be able to explore the country's numerous natural wonders, like the Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Moher and Killarney National Park.
