5 Reasons to Relocate to Ireland


1. The incredible, outdoorsy lifestyle

While Dublin might be a busy, cultural hub, you can still be in the heart of the city and yet only less than 30 minutes from the most inspiring scenery anywhere in the world: perfect for weekend escapes, long walks and clearing your head of the buzz of Dublin City.

2. The Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is one of the most beautiful trails that tourists and holidaymakers encounter. It has everything: breathtaking scenery, friendly locals and a beautiful coastline. It’s the perfect trip for a week-long holiday in which you will take in places and people that are unique to the island.

3. The land of hearty, authentic cuisine

Boasting some of the most genuine and natural food produce anywhere in the world, Ireland has long been a significant exporter across the EU of meat, poultry, fish and dairy.
Across the Island, too, we have exciting pubs and restaurants that are not just confined to Dublin: whether it’s the local, gourmet fare of a local pub, or the booming cafe scene in Dublin, or the increasing amount of pop-up restaurants, Ireland’s pub and restaurant scene excels because of its authentic ingredients and excellent service, which showcase our unparalleled ability to make people feel welcome.

4. The incredible culture

With a colourful turn of phrase and world class music recognised all over the world – whether it’s modern artists like U2, The Corrs, Hozier or One Direction’s Niall Horan, or known traditional musicians in the local pub – Irish music has an identity that is all it’s own.
Ireland is also blessed with a tradition that includes literary heavyweights. From the book of Kells right through to Joyce, Yeats, Beckett and Seamus Heaney, Ireland is renown the world over for our ability with the written word.
We’re also home to some brilliant festivals: whether you’re interested in music, film, books, or visual art, you’ll never be bored in Ireland. There are, literally, thousands of festivals.

5. The people

So we’ve talked about the scenery; the culture; the food. What is the single most impressive thing about Ireland? It’s the people.
It’s no surprise to those of use who live in Ireland that readers of Yahoo! Travel recently voted three Irish cities – Dublin, Cork and Galway – in their top 5 of the world’s friendliest cities. It’s an incredible testimony to the warmth, humour and the friendly, helpful and humorous nature of the Irish people.
