What are the pros and cons of living in Ireland?
Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Ireland responded:
"The weather in the east of Ireland, middle/south, is better than most people think. It's nice to live close to the sea. Taxes deducted from your salary are relatively low compared to, e.g., Germany. Dislike: the people (of course there are always exceptions), the prices, lack of housing and lack of rights for renters, feels rather provincial once you are outside of Dublin, health care system, there's not Amazon Ireland and with Brexit now we have to pay import taxes, shipping parcels to other countries is ridiculously expensive, more traditional gender division than in other northern countries," said one in Dublin.
