We asked people living in Ireland to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Pack items that will keep you warm, such as sweaters, thick socks, scarves, and gloves, as Ireland's climate can be unpredictable. Comfortable rain gear, such as a raincoat and waterproof shoes, can also be handy, as the country can experience a fair amount of rain throughout the year. Don't forget your electrical adapters to ensure your US and Canadian appliances work in the Irish power outlets. Bring your passport, necessary visas, and immunization records with you just in case. If you are planning on working, also make sure to pack your work visas and all other necessary paperwork. A few souvenirs like local t-shirts, postcards, and mementos might help ease any homesickness, so don’t forget a few of those as well," remarked another expat who made the move to Ireland.

"More clothing. More Tech stuff. More everything, because everything is more expensive here," explained one expat living in Dublin, Ireland.
