Overall
As an international student from France currently studying in Dublin, I am looking for an intership abroad. 
I study mostly business related courses such as Finance, Economics, Digital Transforation, HR, Marketing, etc. My goal is to find an internship that will suit the competencies I have acquired at school and in my previous internship as well as I what I wish do to in my career, what I like. 
IAgora is a great way to do that since it proposes so many intern positions, in different countries and in a wide range of fields!

Personal comments
The University could have helped more in housing services. The situation has changed this year, as there are two new residences near the university campus that are prety good. Last year there were not such student residences, and housing was based in looking for houses near the University. The houses in dublin are quite old and many facilities. The University residence is only able to accomodate 30% of the students, so the new residences have been very handy, also to lower prices, as housing prices in Dublin are quite high.

Final comments
The accomodation on campus is the best option as it is not very expensive and it is just one step far from the faculty and the library. Regarding the facilities on campus, there is a gymnasium, a supermarket, a travel agency and a pub (to have some pints of Guinness)

As I lived in Dublin for one year I will say that it depends on what you are looking for. But there three main events that you should not miss if you live in Dublin; they are: Halloween, it is really good as everyone dress up, 2. The six nation, it is the most important Rugby tournament in Europe and finally, St Patricks day... it is the national party and everyone is Irish for that day, no matter where you come from, the Irish spirit will get inside you.
