As a dual US/Irish Citizen(Irish by Descent)...Can my Us Citizen Wife and I spend 6 months a year in Ireland once we retire?
We just showed up, the customs agent wasn't too pleased with us but gave me a 90 stamp to get the paperwork filed, I'll probably have to get an extension till it gets approved but they said that wasn't a problem. You might call or email them to see if you need it if you're only staying for 6 months.

If we did not have jobs and just landed with Passports do we need to file the EU1 form in advance or should we just apply for a Visa now here in the States?
My wife and I plan to retire to Ireland this coming fall. We will be starting with an exploratory trip to look for a place to live. We would appreciate any recommendations you may have. We woul like to be within 2 hours drive of an intrnational airport, and in a smaller town/village. for example, a town we are looking at is Carrick on Shannon. We are looking for a scenic village large enough to provide some social activities without having to live in a giant city like Dublin. Also, is it any warmer/drier in the south around Cork vs up north neal Galway?
Thanks for any assistance you can provide
We moved to Paulstown, it's about an hour from Dublin, 2 from Cork, 10 minutes to Bagenalstown, 15 to Carlow and about 15 to Kilkenny. Nice quiet area.

This is TOTALLY out of line for this forum, obviously you aren't smart enough to realize that this board is mostly American's or other NON Irish to ask about immigrating to Ireland. NOT a place for you to try and find slave labour. Why don't you look at some of the Eastern European boards you might actually have better luck in finding someone to take you up on your offer. Please stop using this informative board for your selfish reasons.

Hello. Quick question. Moving to Dublin from States with 11 year old daughter next year. My husband is from Dublin (has not lived there in 20 years) and we all have dual citizenship. Have researched a lot, but get no feedback about introducing my American tween to Irish school/secondary. Love to hear from people who have American teenage kids who moved to Ireland. Or from people who can help. Thinking about Malahide, because we have family there.
Trying to make the transition easier for my child.

I wondered if we would be better at an international school for the older one. He's not in IB here, but is in AP.
For the 16 year old need to be aware of the learning cert and leaving cert which are tests taken to determine what professional study/degree and university one can attend in Ireland. Parents often get tutors and exam is extremely stressful. Plus given only once.

replied to the thread Extended stay?
on the Ireland forum:
Are there accommodations in Dublin that are similar to the "extended stay" style hotels in America? If one is going to be in country for 3-12 months do they rent an apartment?
You could check out self-catering accommodations, might be less expensive than hotels.
I Googled "self-catering Dublin" and found a nice assortment, including this one: http://www.dublincityapartments.ie/
