Ireland, a country known for its exceptional hospitality, welcomes all those who are yearning to learn English. With many language schools peppered throughout Dublin and the countryside, there are plenty of places to teach English.

As a destination, Ireland is exceptional. With its friendly people as well as gorgeous countryside, it is easy to feel at home here. Dublin, the capital city, has the feel of a major metropolitan city but on a smaller scale. For a more quaint, typical Irish city, head west to Galway. Be sure to explore the country’s natural wonders from the Cliffs of Moher to Giant’s Causeway and to check out historical sites such as Kilmainham Gaol and Blarney Castle.

While an island, it’s quite easy to travel to mainland Europe. Airports are located in Dublin and Shannon (one hour from Galway) and provide relatively inexpensive access to the mainland. For a quick daytrip to the UK, Belfast is easy to reach by car or take the ferry from Dublin to Cardiff, Whales.


You will be required to have a Bachelor’s degree in addition to a TEFL or CELTA certificate.
