When you show up in Dublin, Dublin shows up for you. It’s not the most polished of cities but it is one of the most grounded. The lack of ‘airs and graces’ makes the city alive and vibrant. The doors of the city are open to all, Dubliners standby their ‘the more the merrier’ attitude to socialising. As a result, the city is full of different voices, but they all sing the same song. Sláinte!

Life in Dublin as a Student and Young Professional 

Living

The international feeling of Dublin is mixed with a strong sense of the traditional. Dublin has kept its soul even as it welcomes tech firms and fancy French bistros. For you, that translates to the best of both worlds.

The strong Irish lilt notwithstanding, you’ll have no problem communicating in Dublin. You’ll pick up the odd word or two of Irish. The Irish love their sayings, and you’ll pick these up quickly too.

The most common way to get around, if it’s too far to walk, is the bus. If you’re heading south then the tram service (LUAS) might work for you. Trains are only really if you’re heading out of the city further afield.

Spending time with those closest to you is top of the list for free time in Dublin. Irish football (also known as Gaelic football) and Irish Hurling are popular sports, but often more to watch than to play.

Eating

Without doubt there are plenty of wonderful places to eat in Dublin. It’s common to start with a drink in one of the many bars or pubs (there are over 1000 pubs in Dublin) and then go on for food from there.

The Irish have a fine tradition for food, so Irish Stew or a potato dish like Coddle might be on the menu. There are also many excellent international restaurants and eateries on offer throughout the city.

Working

Family plays a vital role in Irish society, so there is a strong “work to live” culture. As international work culture, and opportunities, come to Ireland this attitude remains. Most Dubliners prefer to work hard so they can get home to the family.

Still, most workweeks are 40 hours, overtime is used if required. There is a growing call for a four-day week in Ireland. Most companies expect professional dress in the office, so suit and tie is the order of the day. Oh, and expect an invite to the pub after work.

internships in dublin, take in the glory at The Long Room Dublin Internships, take a walk in Iveagh Gardens

Our local favourites

The Long Room, Trinity College

Do check out the Long Room at Trinity College. It’s 65 meters long and has 200,000 of the College’s oldest books. The old-world feeling of grandeur makes it a very special place to visit.

Iveagh Gardens

Dublin is a Georgian city and the one thing they loved in that period was a good walk. There are plenty of formal parks and gardens across the city and the Iveagh Gardens is our top pick. The archery field, boating tower, waterfall and maze all make for a diverting and fun afternoon stroll.
