We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"Finding a place to live in Ireland can seem like a daunting task, but by taking a few steps and researching your options, you will be able to find the perfect home for you. The first step is to figure out what type of accommodation you need, as this will determine the range of options available to you. Once you have narrowed down the type of accommodation, it’s time to search. This can be done by using online resources such as Daft, Rent.ie and Property.ie. These websites allow you to search for rentals based on location and needs such as price, size, amenities, etc. If you are unable to find a suitable rental online, you may want to consider working with a real estate agent or exploring other rental options, such as flat-shares or house swaps. Be sure to also check for apartment or house viewings in newspapers and notice boards. Finally, visit the local rental area in person to get a good sense of the different options. With some patience and research, you can find the perfect place to call home in Ireland," remarked another expat in Ireland.

"We came to Ireland on a pre-move visit to get a 'feel' for the different areas in and around Dublin. In the months previous to our move we scoured the homes for rent list on www.daft.ie which is THE website for real estate on which virtually all real estate agents and prive landlords advertise their properties. We eventually found our home via an estate agent," said a member in Dublin, Ireland.
