The Country

For anyone outside of the country, Ireland is a hard place to find a job teaching English, even more so for those who do not have an EU passport. The city of Dublin is probably your best opportunity to find a teaching position; however, it is an expensive city to live in. Unfortunately, there are only a small number of jobs available in cheaper areas outside of the capital. There are a few language schools in Dublin where you may find employment although the pay may not be good enough to cover living expenses.

Private language schools, universities and colleges in Ireland offer a limited number of TEFL/TESOL positions. The summer holiday months (June to September) are the best time to find a job teaching English in Ireland. With an EU passport you do not have to secure a visa to find work. To begin your job search, find details of language schools on the web and send out your CV/resume. When you start to get replies, a personal interview usually follows.
