When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ireland, they said...

"browse the irish press for a while, to get a feel for the place. www.ireland.com and www.unison.ie are good sources. Also www.ul.ie is a good site to keep an eye on," said another expat in Limerick, Ireland.

"Before retiring in Ireland, expats should do research on the economy and potential job opportunities, as well as any tax or legal implications for foreigners. It is also important to research the visa requirements for long-term stay and learn about the public healthcare system, public transportation, and housing options. Additionally, being aware of local customs and cultural traditions can help in building relationships with the local community. Finally, expats should become familiar with the language, either by taking classes or by simply getting to know words and phrases that will allow them to get by on a daily basis," wrote a member who made the move to Ireland.
