Dublin’s weather is mild and stays consistent in temperature with slight fluctuations. You can count on it to be rainy one-third of the year but don’t count the sunshine out. Packing layers and rain gear is a good idea when heading to Dublin.

Greta is originally from the West of Ireland. She has lived and worked abroad for most of her life – the US, Australia, the UK, Germany and Chile – and has visited many more. She returned to Dublin in 2016 and now lives by the beach in beautiful Killiney with her 2 children and a dog.
Greta has a portfolio career and a wide range of experiences that she hopes bring a unique perspective to her job at Global Experiences. She has worked as a teacher, the director of an international language school, journalist, editor, consultant and as a creative producer for contemporary dance companies.
Greta is passionate about people, different cultures and education, and strongly believes that traveling helps people find the best in themselves.

Your program staff will also provide you with more details pre-departure and during orientation.Learn more
