If you are thinking about moving to Ireland, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...

"The cost of housing in Ireland can vary greatly depending on the location, but generally speaking, accommodation in Ireland is generally more expensive than in other European countries. One-bedroom apartments can cost around €1,200 per month in urban areas and €800 in rural areas, while three-bedroom apartments can cost from €1,700 to €2,000 per month in cities and €1,200 to €1,500 per month in rural areas. Prices for houses vary even more widely, with larger detached or semi-detached properties often exceeding €2,500 per month in the bigger cities, while smaller family homes can cost anywhere in-between €1,000 and €2,000 in rural areas," remarked another expat in Ireland.

"Remarkably our 4 bedroom home is about half the cost of the 2 bedroom apartment we rented in Florida and our home is private, in an upscale neighborhood with a backyard and abutting a large pasture. Depending on the location, renting and purchasing can vary significantly. We opted to avoid city life, like Dublin, where cost of housing is considerably more. Our location averages €650 per month where in Dublin similar could run €2500," said a member in Tobercurry, Ireland.
