Living abroad in Dublin

Journalism and media interns abroad in Dublin can appreciate the city’s prevalent greenery. The city offers many beautiful parks and gardens where interns can spend their days off picnicking or reading a book by their favorite Irish author. In fact, Dublin has more green areas, per square kilometer, than any other European capital. Dublin’s cycling infrastructure is also an important perk of living in the city, if interns wish to get around by bike. The city also has a safe and reliable public transportation system, which is easy to navigate. In terms of living arrangements, journalism and media interns will live with other young professionals, students or interns on the program in a safe and beautiful area of Dublin. Interns stay in accommodation close to public transport so that they can commute easily to their internship.

 

Embracing Ireland’s culture & traditions

Ireland has exported an impressive number of literary geniuses, which can be of inspiration to journalism and media interns abroad. Considering the island’s relatively small population, a surprising number of famous authors are Irish. Celebrated Irish authors include Samuel Beckett, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, C. S. Lewis, William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde. At The Dublin Writer’s Museum, interns can develop a greater understanding of just how prevalent Irish authors have been in the world of literature.

In Dublin interns will also have the chance to learn more about Ireland’s fascinating culture. They’ll discover more about many myths, legends and folklore that have been passed down for generations. Perhaps the most famous Irish or Gaelic legend is about the mischievous leprechaun, the cobbler and fairy who loves to dress in green and play tricks. Journalism and media interns in Dublin will learn, after a trip to Dublin’s National Folklore Collection, that there’s much more to Irish culture than this famous fool, the clover and St. Patrick’s Day.
