What do I need to know about living in Tobercurry?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tobercurry, they said:

"Expats considering retiring in Tobercurry, should be aware of several factors before making the move. Firstly, they should familiarize themselves with the cost of living, which can be higher than in other countries, particularly for housing, utilities, and healthcare. It is essential to have a clear understanding of the local property market and rental prices if they plan to buy or rent a home. Next, they should research the Irish healthcare system, as it operates on a two-tier system with both public and private options. Expats may need to secure private health insurance to ensure access to the best healthcare facilities and avoid long waiting times for public services. Understanding the Irish tax system is also crucial, as retirees may be subject to taxes on their pensions and other income sources. They should consult with a financial advisor to determine their tax obligations and potential benefits. Expats should also be prepared for the Irish weather, which is known for being unpredictable and often rainy. Investing in good quality rain gear and warm clothing is essential for a comfortable life in Tobercurry. Additionally, retirees should familiarize themselves with the local culture, customs, and language. Although English is widely spoken in Ireland, learning some basic Irish phrases can help them feel more connected to the local community and make it easier to integrate. Finally, it is essential to consider the availability of social activities and support networks for retirees in Tobercurry. Joining local clubs, organizations, and expat groups can help them make friends and maintain an active social life during their retirement years," wrote a member in Tobercurry.

"Tobercurry is an attractive town located in County Sligo in the North West of Ireland. It is known for its beautiful landscapes and its warm and friendly atmosphere. When considering retiring in Tobercurry, it is important to note that the cost of living is relatively low and there are a number of amenities and services which would be beneficial for retirees. Good transport links make it easy to get to and from the town and surrounding area. There is also a host of leisure and recreational activities available, from golf and fishing to walking and cycling. It is also important to bear in mind that the weather can be unpredictable and occasionally inclement," commented one expat who made the move to Tobercurry.
