Stint Ireland Reviews
Irish Gap Year of a Lifetime
Submitted by Linnea - Winter Park, CO United States | January 31, 2018
After spending 1 year on a working holiday visa in Ireland, I can't express my excitement enough!
Stint Ireland provided me with friends, housing, and resources to make my year abroad the experience of a lifetime. The price is not cheap, so save up for unforeseen circumstances and cost of living, but it is so worth it. That said, I highly recommend finding your own housing (more affordable) as soon as you find your footing. This will allow you more money for travel and to experience Dublin life as a local.
I have made friends that I will have forever, who I met through Stint, and traveled all over the world. I would not trade this experience for the world and I cannot recommend this experience enough!
1 Year living abroad

Without the support and guidance from the team at Stint Ireland, my gap year would have been a completely different experience. They make the process of applying very smooth. They also make your big move as easy and convenient as possible.
Living in Stint housing for 5 months I was able to connect with people who also had moved to a foreign country by themselves. The connections and friendships I made are forever and I am unconditionally grateful Stint brought us together. The weekly/monthly get togethers and trips also allow you to reach out and meet new people as well as get to experience new places all over Dublin and Ireland.
I would recommend Stint to anyone who is considering moving to Ireland, wether that be on a gap year or for an internship. The program is amazing!!

Ireland may be one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and I got to work there! With the great support, and cozy housing provided by Stint I was prepared for living and working in Dublin.
Stint provided me with an opportunity to challenge myself by gaining vital experience at an animation distribution company while also learning to navigate a new country. I am proud to say I was able to successfully traverse the sometimes confusing streets of Dublin with ease by the end of my stay.
I value my experience with both Stint and the animation company and would highly recommend an internship abroad program.
Program: Film & Animation Internships
2 months in Dublin just wasn't enough...
Submitted by Madison - Morehead State University | November 21, 2017
My time spent interning abroad is the most valuable way I have ever spent my summer. If I wouldn’t have had to return to the United States for college, I could have seen myself transitioning into living in Dublin. Stint Ireland was there for me throughout the whole process, from aligning me with the perfect company to intern with to continuously calming my nerves.
As someone that categorizes herself as an introvert that fears to step outside of her comfort zone, Stint was an excellent support system that made living abroad not seem so daunting. To only be a 10-minute walk away from the Stinit office is a huge comfort of mind. To help ease the transition of living in a foreign country, Stint organizes socials every other Thursday and several weekend trips. These events were great ways to meet with other individuals that were in your shoes. 2 months in Dublin just wasn't enough. I spent every weekend traveling around Ireland, taking recommendations from the Stint staff. I saw so much of the country, but by the time I packed up my bags to head home, I contracted the travel bug and needed to see more. My experience through Stint Ireland instilled in me a love of travelling and took the fear out of travelling abroad. I'm forever grateful for my time in Ireland and the Stint staff that made it possible. Make sure to make the most of your time, because you too will be leaving with the same feeling I did: 2 months in Dublin just wasn't enough...

I had a great time in Dublin, Ireland! One of the best summers that I have ever had. The experiences, friendships and memories I made will stay with me for the rest of my life. The internship I had was a wonderful learning experience and the responsibilities I was given gave me a lot of hands on experience I wouldn't have been able to get here in the United States.
