I was given the opportunity to intern in Dublin this summer, and I can honestly say it was the experience of a lifetime. Everything about living in Dublin was refreshing and exciting, and I wouldn’t trade this experience for the world. Not only did I stay in a safe, if not a tad bit distant area from the city centre of Dublin, but my accommodations were also extremely clean and accommodating. Dublin is a perfect place to visit, especially if you’d like to visit other European countries while you’re here.
I interned for a non-profit and worked directly under their Migrant Family Support Service coordinator. I really enjoyed my time there. All of my coworkers and supervisors were energetic and made work fun. My favorite thing about working in Dublin is that although you are expected to work hard, you are also free to play hard too.
The city is extremely beautiful, and the night life is unreal. I spent the nights dancing away, having a couple of pints, and meeting locals and other international visitors. Everyone I met seemed to be so excited to meet me and help me out in any way that they could. The food in this city is literally off the charts, so please budget money to pig out.
Lastly, Connect 123 was a prime choice in internship coordinators, so at the end of the day I am really glad that I chose them. They made sure that I was safe and tried to make my time in Dublin as comfortable and fun as possible. My only recommendation for future interns is that they should budget their money accordingly, and make sure to bring money for transportation, night life, and any emergency that may happen. I hope you enjoy Dublin. Cheers!
