Quality Cost of Living in Ireland

Ireland is not the cheapest place to settle down, but you’ll find that it offers you a relaxing, rewarding environment for your much anticipated life abroad. In many areas of Ireland, the cost of living is around US$2,500 per month. If you’re savvy, your budget may even be lower. And keep this in mind, the cost of living in Ireland is a forever-moving target, especially if by living in Ireland the currency in which you derive your income differs from the euro.

So what will it cost you to live in Ireland?

The only one who can answer that question is you.

If living in a major city like Dublin is your dream, the cost of living here, as in any major city, will be higher. Rent can start at 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.

Meals when you’re out and about can run you between US$11 and 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, the classic staple, potatoes.

A roof over your head, food in your belly, but what if you get sick or are just fine and want a check-up. Health care is something to factor in as you consider the cost of living in Ireland. Health insurance costs are around US$1,000 annually, but compared to monthly costs in other nations, this is reasonable when spread out over 12 months.

One more time, we can’t tell you how much the cost of living in Ireland will work out for your situation, but these figures can let you know what to expect. Keep up on the latest figures we publish to have the surest footing. The time is now to make your move…

How To Celebrate A Traditional Irish Christmas

James Joyce’s “The Dead” is often praised as the greatest Irish short story ever written. Though I first read the story some years ago, I’ve never heard it talked about in general society. So, I was recently surprised to find its entry on a list of Irish Christmas traditions. According to a national radio station, a “reading of ‘The Dead’” is a top festive pursuit among Irish households. I need to track down this subset of society that quietly celebrates...
