What is life like as an expat in your area?
When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...
"Life for expats and digital nomads in Ireland is generally very pleasant. The country is known for its stunning landscapes, friendly locals and high quality of life. Expats in Ireland will find a culture of warmth and hospitality, as well as plenty of opportunities to explore the unique culture and landscapes of the country. The digital nomad community is vibrant and people can take advantage of Ireland's world-class co-working spaces, excellent restaurants and great transport links. Ireland is an ideal destination for anyone looking to work remotely, explore beautiful countryside or just make new friends in an unfamiliar place," explained one expat living in Ireland.
"As in most communities throughout the world, priorities center on providing for family, religion, discussing global affairs and politics, and of course, sports. Tubbercurry has a GAA pitch and a lovely golf course. There is a newly revamped children's park and excellent walking areas with wonderful beauty," said another expat in Tubbercurry, Ireland.
