Ireland’s landscape is formed by harsh cliffs, crystal clear rivers, rolling hills and wide open meadows, so it's no surprise that Ireland is also known as the Emerald Isle. If you wish to experience this unique landscape alongside your internship, you should choose Ireland for your PractiGo foreign work placement. The Irish are known to be fun-loving, temperamental and very open folk. These are among some of the reasons why Ireland has become one of the most popular destinations for work placements. As an intern you will immediately feel part of the team and will get to know the Irish culture first-hand while you work.
