Psychology Internships in Ireland


You will live in a furnished, shared student residence, typically housing 3-6 students in each apartment. There will be a shared kitchen, bathroom, double bedrooms and living area. Internet access and laundry facilities are available in the residence complex.

You should be open to all types of accommodation, as housing placements are based on a number of factors such as availability, program length, cost, number of participants and proximity to the internship site.

UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.


A welcome dinner is included in the program cost. All other meals are not included in the program cost and are the responsibility of the participant. You will be able to shop locally for groceries to prepare meals in your apartment, as well as take time to enjoy the cafes and restaurants.

Excursions & Activities

You will participate in the Bridging Cultures Program that takes place upon arrival. This multi-day, on-site orientation aims to ease your transition to the environment—both inside and outside the workplace—to accelerate readiness to live and work in Ireland.

In addition, you have the opportunity to participate in many self-led, as well as organized cultural activities and reflection workshops throughout the program. Possible activities and workshops may include:

  • Sampling regional cuisine and partaking in cultural traditions
  • City tours, museum visits, sporting events, dance classes, art and cultural festivals
  • Optional fee-based, one-day excursions for Galway: Cliffs of Moher; Aran Islands; Kylemore Abbey
  • Optional fee-based, one-day excursions for Limerick: Adare; Ring of Kerry
  • Group and individual reflection activities

Get to Know Your Destination

Galway, located in western Ireland, and Limerick, located in mid-west Ireland, are both vibrant cities that are host to a variety of cultural celebrations and festivals, music events, restaurants, and more. In summer, Ireland comes to life.

Study Abroad Advisory of Student Risk

Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible.  However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
