We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Crime rates in Ireland are lower than in many other European countries. The types of crimes reported in Ireland are generally nonviolent and include public order offences, burglaries, drug offences and fraud. While armed robberies and homicides occur, they are relatively rare compared to other European countries," said another expat in Ireland.

"We asked, prior to moving, about overall crime and specifically the area we were choosing for our move. Petty crimes like purse snatching are rare. Of course larger cities have higher incidents but much lower gun problems since here they are illegal," wrote a member who made the move to Tobercurry, Ireland.
