Have you rocked a claddagh ring since you were a little girl? Have you contemplated a Celtic knot tattoo for years? Then maybe a hospitality internship in Ireland is for you! As one of the most beautiful countries in the world, it’s no surprise that the tourism board aims to welcome 7.74 million visitors in the next year. Whether stalking Bono, combing fields for a four leaf clover, or hunting for the perfect whiskey, travelers come to Ireland for a variety of reasons.
Did we mention that over 80 million Irishmen and women live outside of our borders? Irish is the second largest ethnic group in the United States, and its estimated nearly half of Australia’s population are of Irish descent. Irish pride runs strong through their veins, making heritage travel a natural win for the tourism industry of Éire.
