Work Visa

I'm a 45-year-old Canadian woman looking to move to Ireland in the spring of next year. I've been looking into the process of applying for a work visa, and I'm a little confused. I know that I cannot actually apply until I've landed in Ireland, but do I need to wait until I have an offer of employment from somewhere before I apply or can I just apply for a general work visa and then look for a job? As well, I'm a transcriptionist and mostly work online which I'm planning to continue while I'm there. I was just thinking about getting a part-time job like bartending as a way to get out of the house and meet people. Does anyone know if there might be any issues with this?

From what is known about immigration to Ireland, unless you have ancestors born in Ireland, i.e, grandparent or parent, which would allow you to get citizenship, you must have an income of 50,000 Euro per year per family member with you, and about 150,000 Euro in savings to remain in Ireland. They do have programs for critical skills but I do not believe transcriptionist is one of them. Why Ireland ?
