Hi EE!

My wife and I are looking to be first time expats in Ireland. I'll be looking for jobs here in the new future, so I know that will somewhat determine where we can end up living. I work in the tech industry, so from what I understand I'll be looking around either Dublin or Cork? We have a newborn daughter with us as well, and would want to be fairly close to a good school.

How long would you recommend we go check out houses in the different areas? What is the best method of finding the right house? Any suggestions for good areas to do research on?

Have you taken any time to review old messages? This topic has been covered over and over again. Too bad EE doesn't post links to FAQ. Probably help cut down on redundancy.

As for tech, there are far more locations than just Dublin and Cork. Galway, for example, is trending as a good location for tech-related businesses.

Bruin:

Are you going with a job lined up? Then employer has a moral obligation to help out with info at least.

Going without a job?
Good Luck!

Though if you can work remotely then your chances improve significantly.

You mentioned working remotely - is that possible for an American Company from Ireland? I was under the impression that my current US-based company would have to register and issue me an Ireland work permit.

That is why you need to speak with Irish Immigration as your US company is not present in Ireland. Even if the company "registers" the only ones that can give you a working Visa is Irish Immigration. As I mentioned in the prior post, I believe you need to contact Immigration to get better answers. No one here would know the complications you could run into. A one person employee in Ireland with no office does not exactly make a Irish company, but maybe immigration can find a way. I hope you know what you are getting in to ? Suggest you not buy any property until you have at least spent a year or more.
