TESOL Jobs in Ireland

Ireland is a difficult place to get a TEFL job for anyone who does not live in the country or who does not have an EU passport. Most TEFL jobs are available in Dublin, but this is an expensive city to live in. It can be cheaper to live outside of Dublin, but then there are fewer positions available. Dublin has a lot of language schools, and you may get one of these jobs, but the work may not be consistent, and the pay may not be able to meet your expenses.

Types of TEFL Jobs in Ireland

Aside from TEFL jobs at private language schools, positions are available at universities and colleges as well. Many jobs are available during the summer holiday months of June to September. If you hold a passport from an EU country, you will not need to get a work visa.

Ireland offers a Student Work Abroad Program, which can provide legal work status for some non-EU residents. The preferred way to begin to look for a TEFL Job in Ireland is to send your up to date resume to language schools. You can easily find their contact information on the internet. Once you have attracted the interest of one of these schools, you will generally be required to go for an interview in person.
