    Ireland is not the cheapest place to settle down, but you’ll find that it offers a relaxing, rewarding environment for your much anticipated life abroad.

    In many areas of Ireland, the cost of living is about US$2,500 per month. If you’re savvy, your budget may even be lower.

    Most importantly, the cost of living in Irelandis a forever-moving target, especially if the currency in which you derive your income differs from the euro.

    So What Will It Cost You To Live In Ireland?

    Truthfully, the only one who can answer that question is you.

    Firstly, if living in a major city like Dublin is your dream, the cost of living here, as in any major city, will be higher. So, rent can start at about US$880 and run as high as US$2,200.

    Outside of Dublin, in the lush, green countryside you can pay US$450 or less.

    You can find meals at about US$16, but this is no mere bowl of soup. For the price, the carvery lunch serves up sliced chunks of juicy meat, cooked veggies, and, potatoes.

    We’ve covered a roof over your head and food in your belly, but what if you get sick or simply need a check-up.

    Health care is definitely something to factor in.

    Health insurance costs are about US$1,000 annually, but compared to monthly costs in other nations, this is reasonable when spread out over 12 months.

    Again, we can’t tell you how much the cost of living in Ireland will be foryour situation, but the figures below can help you get a better idea of what to expect.

    Monthly Living Expenses (Dublin)Cost Per Month
    Rent (2 bedroom apartment in the city)US$900
    Transportation (monthly unlimited bus pass)US$160
    Electric, gas, water, and garbage.US$160

    How Janet’s Second Home In Ireland Pays For Itself

    Years ago, my mother knew a lady named Janet who bought a small piece of land on the southwestern coast of Ireland, in Kerry. On this land, Janet built two houses, one for her personal use and one to rent out. Each summer, Janet took a trip to Kerry to check on her rental property and to meet with her rental manager. During the visit, she stayed in one of the two houses she'd built, her second home in Ireland....
