How and where can I meet new friends

Hey all I'm 20 years old and I am currently living in Dublin for a year on a work placement for University in England and I've yet to meet any friends. I am very easy going and like to have a good drink I also enjoy most sports and general socialising. I would love to meet lots of new people as I am feeling pretty lonely at the minute therefore I'm wondering if anyone could give me any advice or anyone who wants to make friends :D

I'm in Dublin since December and like all of you, I would like to meet new people and make friends. I'm french and I also would like to improve my level of English. You can see my mail adress on my profile and send me a mail if someone is interested to have a drink someday with my girlfriend and I.

Thanks, bye,


Hi !
I'm new on this forum and I just begin to "control" sending messages!
(First, I'm sorry for my english..)

I am french and I'm in Dublin since September 2011.
I've followed my boyfriend which doing a year of studies here, I am looking desperately for a job ..
I confess that the first few weeks, I have visited more Dublin than looked for work.
But since 2 or 3 months, I really want to find a job here.
Unfortunately, I find nothing. I have a complete formation in hairdressing, but a "fluent English" is essential (which is not my situation).
So I come here, to see if some of you have other plans for a job anywhere in anything in Dublin. I'm here until June and I don't care what kind of job I will do if I can speak English... (part-time/full-time/contract...etc)

Thank you for your answers!

im 22 nearly 23 i work full time hours and ive lived in dublin all my life but ive always struggled to make friends as im really quiet and shy. I really wanna find some good mates to go out with socialise have a drink, go see a film or just in general hang out anybody got any ideas or would like to chat please feel free to drop me a message


why does it seems so sad in dublin ):

its not sad here im just finding it hard to meet new girlfriends here since my school mates went of to college and met there own new friends and i went of to work instead of going to college. :)

I am a bit 'shy' but I have never had issue meeting people.  Start with your interests:  sewing, fencing, writing, photography etc. 

There are groups/organizations around town; get involved.  You'll be engaged in something you enjoy with people who share a similar interest. 

For me, it takes some time to warm up to strangers and this allows me to meet people at my own pace in a comfortable setting.
