TEFL Internationals’ training center in Ireland is located in the sunny, south-west town of Limerick. It’s a historical city with sites dating back as far as the Viking settlements of 812. Bunratty Castle, King John’s Castle, St. Mary’s Cathedral, and the Hunt Museum are some of Ireland’s most significant historical attractions.
Limerick is a bustling city, with a huge variety of shops, boutiques, delicious restaurants and wild nightlife. It also has an abundance of performing and visual arts venues. The Belltable theater hosts local playwrights drams, while the Limerick City Art Gallery has a permanent collection of Celtic art as well as contemporary art. The University Concert Hall routinely hosts local performances of both national and international music, theater and opera. Of course, many of the local pubs host local and traveling bands to entertain customers most nights of the week.
Limerick also has a strong sports tradition and students from our center have the opportunity to watch and participate in a variety of sports. Rugby and basketball are both popular in Limerick. A new stadium just opened in Thomond and you’ll be able to take in both national and international events there. We’ve also got the Gaelic games of hurling and Gaelic football that you can come and watch, as well as soccer, tennis, field hockey and much, much more.
Limerick is very important in Ireland and acts as a center of education. It’s home to ten higher education institutes and it enjoys a large student population of over 20,000, making it an ideal location for a TEFL course trainee.
We’ve got something for everyone here and you’ll feel like you’ve got the luck of the Irish when you arrive. If you wish to travel a bit further afield, public transport links up easily with Dublin and other cities in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
