Watergate Theatre and Ruby2 Digital

One of my two Work Placements is the Watergate Theatre in Kilkenny, there I have to take calls, update their customer contacts and prepare the tickets for the upcoming shows. The employees from the Watergate Theatre are all really nice and outgoing and I learn a lot from them.

Since I only need to work 3 days a week for the Watergate Theatre Con from LXI arranged for me to also work for Ruby2 Digital. Where I was allowed to help the owner Tom. My duties include to write content for websites, search for Keywords which will help to place Websites higher on Google Search and to analyze the Websites of Customer Opponents.

This is our host family

Tamara and I are living about 15 minutes by car from Kilkenny City. Our host family consists of the parents Kilian and Yvonne and 3 lovely children Abban, Fionn and Niamh.

Their house is really beautiful and you have a nice view over the irish landscape. Yvonne is excellent at cooking and prepares the most delicious dishes for us.
Kilian works at the fire station and on monday he showed us his workplace, which was really interessting.

The kids are all super active and really into hurling. (for girls camogie)

We really enjoy our stay with them.



My workplace in Thomastown 🤓💻

I work at the company Marble City Interior Solutions in Thomastown. It is a very small company because there work only three people. It’s nice to work there because they are very friendly.

They make bespoke furniture for your house or company.

I’m working there in the office. My duty is to post all the pictures from Facebook on Instagram.

Working at Petmania in Kilkenny🐶🐱

I work at Petmania, a company where you can get everything what a pet could need, even a dog grooming service. I’m in the same office as Hannah, but she works for Meubles. I work in the marketing department of Petmania and get to do a lot of various work. Until now my duties included:

■ adding events and posts on Facebook

■ updating the website

■ making the weekly newsletter for all the stores

I really enjoy my work in Kilkenny and I’m looking forward to everything that I still get to do!

My workplace? Your future livingroom!

I’m working at Treacy’s Carpets and Furniture, it’s in Bennettsbridge. It’s around 5 minutes by car from our host family and around 10 minutes to Kilkenny. I really enjoy working there with my boss Francis and our colleagues. My current work is about refreshing the website – I’ve to watch out for some new furniture stuff from the supplier and also check if some products aren’t on the supplier’s stock anymore. And there’s already one thing I’ve learned: be prepared to wear warm clothes while working in Ireland! 🌡❄

A lovely host family

Stefanie and I live at a really big host family in Callan. We are 8 people and two sweet dogs in one house. Our family has three kids and there is one girl from Spain too who lives with us. They are all very friendly and open minded.

We are very glad to have a such family. Our room is very small but really sweet furnished.

Today we will meet our classmates for the social evening. We will go to a pub in Kilkenny to talk about our adventures in Ireland. We are looking forward to seing them all today.

Best wishes, Stefanie and Jessica
