We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Ireland, they wrote...

"The cost of living in Ireland depends largely on the area in which one lives and their lifestyle. In general, accommodation in Ireland is more expensive than other parts of Europe, and utilities such as gas, electricity and water can also be more expensive. Food and groceries can be more expensive in Ireland than in other parts of Europe, although there are also some relatively inexpensive options available. Other costs such as transportation, entertainment and clothing are generally comparable to other parts of Europe," said a member in Ireland.
