API offers several exciting options for those looking to do a gap year in Ireland, including study abroad in Cork and Dublin, and intern abroad opportunities in Dublin!

It is said that Ireland, once visited, is never forgotten. The Irish landscape has a mythic resonance, and the country’s history is almost tangible. In terms of Ireland’s landscape, the gentle rainfall, called “soft weather” by the locals, really does create 40 shades of green and quite a few rainbows as well. Ancient moss-covered ring forts crouch in lush valleys, while stone-strewn monastic ruins and lone castle turrets brave the wind on nearby hilltops. Many come to Ireland with high expectations of its romantic scenery, a blend of the raw and rugged with mist-covered verdancy, and seldom return home disillusioned.

“API has given me the tools and knowledge of traveling, experiencing a new culture, and a sense of adventure... I now have more places I know I want to visit, and that I'll be in Ireland again someday." - Conor G.
