Moving and Living in Ireland
Ireland’s pervasive grasslands create a green-hued landscape, renowned for its wealth of folklore, rugged natural beauty as well as world-class beer and whiskey. A dynamic cultural and music scene, great schooling system and jobs industry are a handful of reasons why people choose to move and live in Ireland.
Ireland may geographically be small, but it has an enormous amount to offer, including an incredibly rich culture, diverse artistic talent, lively people and gorgeous, lush landscapes. Well known for its economic and political history, Ireland went from one of the European Union’s poorer countries to one of the wealthiest from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s, with an additional economic boom experienced in the past few years in light of Brexit regulations seeing big corporations move their European headquarters to Dublin. Thanks to Ireland’s central geographic location, the country is a perfect launching pad for travelling. Barcelona is two hours away, Rome is three hours, and for a short trip, the United Kingdom is barely 45 minutes away.
Ireland’s cities and towns are bursting with life and activity, from the fascinating medieval living history along the streets of Dublin to Adare’s thatched cottages and historic buildings, which helps earn it the title as one of Ireland’s prettiest towns. The quaint and quirky seaport town of Cobh is an important port for transatlantic ships, with it being the last stopping point in Europe before the Titanic began its fateful maiden voyage. There is so much more to Ireland than the traditional tourist destinations, with towns such as Kilkenny showcasing the Kilkenny Arts Festival which displays Irish and international creativity every August.
