Gap year in Ireland (First Time Abroad)

There are so many amazing things I could say about my experience in Ireland and more specifically with Stint Ireland. Having never been abroad I was definitely anxious to up and move to another country. However, Stint was so helpful throughout the whole experience.

Before I even arrived in Ireland the Stint crew was there to help me throughout the application process. It made it easy for me to board my flight knowing things would be taken care of upon my arrival. Having conversed with Aoife over the course of a few months before I got to Ireland, when I finally met her for the first time at the Stint house the day I landed, it was like meeting a friend I've known for forever! And honestly, that's truly what Stint became...my friends!

They were so supportive while I tried to come to grips with being in a new country and not having a set date in which I would return home. It was definitely an adjustment for me, being very close with my family, and anytime I needed to talk their office door was open!

While I did run into a few bumps during my time as a working American citizen in Ireland, Stint immediately jumped into action and helped me resolve any issue straight away.

It was an honor to have been their first gap year participant and I fully recommend their program as I know it's only gotten better since I've left Ireland!

The gap year experience was an amazing opportunity because I got to truly integrate myself into the Irish way of life. Ireland is such a beautiful country with amazing people and Stint is no exception!

Internship in Dublin

I really enjoyed my time in Dublin with Stint. They were very helpful with finding a placement and placing me in their accommodation. I met some amazing people from around the world whom I intend to keep in touch with! Stint as an organisation was overall very good and reliable, however I do feel that the program is vastly overpriced for what you get; they did not seem open to deducting any money for people coming from within the EU (who do not need immigration documents and such) which I felt was a bit unreasonable as a lot of their clients are students with tight budgets. Apart from this, I do not have any other concerns about the program- they are very friendly and are willing to be there for you if you need help with any part of your internship and the accommodation is very nice as well. I would recommend this program to others.

Unforgettable summer in Dublin

I traveled to Dublin with STINT Ireland and it was the best decision I've ever made. The program coordinators were extremely helpful and friendly and made the process of getting to Ireland very pain free. While in Ireland, there were so many different opportunities to see the city. There is stuff to do for everyone, like Guinness factory tours, pub crawls, art museums, history tours, and plenty of shops to go exploring in. Meeting all the other students in the STINT program as well as the other students at my internship left me with new friendships and great memories that will stay with me forever. Not to mention the landscapes in Ireland are breathtaking and will be very hard to ever forget.

A grand experience

I honestly believe Ireland has shaped a bit of my being, and that a bit of my heart will always find it's home here. There is something magical about being able to find your away around a city like Dublin, full of it's red brick buildings, pubs, and bridges. You can be approached by a tourist in a way that makes you feel like you at least LOOK as though you know what you're doing, and be asked for directions, and be able to almost confidently give them. You learn to walk a certain way, carrying the gait and pace of a Dubliner. When you see a street, you learn to go with the Irish flow, walking as the crowds carry you along all the other workers with mostly musical lilted voices, talking about the weather or the football match. There is a sense of disembodiment, for surely, a place can't have this much character and be real? A city can't be so pretty and full of life in every step. There is nothing more wonderful than listening to the Script as you rush to work in the freezing rain, or being caught in a light downpour which abates to a double rainbow. Or walking back at night from Whelan's in a drizzle, clutching your wool sweater to you. There will be nothing, nothing, like gazing down from the cliffs on the Giant Causeway and feeling the power of the earth beneath you. Or embracing the nerdy spirit and donning a cloak for a Game of Thrones tour. Even sitting by the channel or watching the ducks bumble along in St. Stephen's green is a memory to treasure. I can now say that I've kayaked the Liffey and climbed mountains. I've seen castles and Causeways, waterfalls and rivers, history and the vivacity of life. I have been lucky enough to go to work everyday in an Animation Studio with the kindest most heartwarming people, and be more than a coffee girl. I have gotten to live my animation dream in a country I wish I could exist in everyday until the end of all days. I can honestly say that Ireland is my home, and Dublin is now my city. I have created art in one of the most magical places on this planet, and I count myself so lucky that it can't quite be put to words. But it was good craic, that's for sure! And by golly, it was grand.

Dublin internship

My summer in Dublin has easily been the best summer of my life! The Stint team is amazing at working with you to find an internship placement that is right for you, and then continue to be with you every step of the way during your time here. They plan lots of awesome trips for the weekends that you can (and should, because they're awesome!) attend, and are always readily available if you have any issues. If you're looking to work abroad, Stint is definitely the way to go!
