It’s no surprise that our ‘Emerald Isle’ facilitates a lot of agriculture; over 70% of Irish land is used for agricultural purposes, and animals are a big part of this.

There’s a sheep for every two people in Ireland. Grass-fed beef is one of our most famous exports, and we’re the 10th largest dairy-exporting nation in the world. While horses aren’t essential to farming like they were 60 years ago, Ireland is the third largest breeder of thoroughbreds in the world.

We love our pets too; 1 in 5 Irish households have a dog, while 14% have a cat. If you’re majoring in Agriculture, Animal Science, or Veterinary Medicine, an internship in Ireland will be your Disneyland.

It be might be the chance to experience the business or practical side of animal care, and maybe raise awareness of animal welfare. Your placement might find you working in an animal shelter, a stud farm, a riding school or alongside a veterinarian.

You’ll learn about new species, practices, and the biodiversity of a small island with thirty-five mammals and 400 bird species.

Photography Internship

My visit to Ireland completely exceeded my expectations. I have to be honest, initially I imagined I needed to be an outdoor person to enjoy the country! I was definitely wrong. Ireland is a place where I want to be outdoors as much as possible. The imagery is so captivating and its visuals vary across the land. The landscapes are very alluring and simple to hike around.
