Until very recently many American and British expats looked at Ireland as a dream destination. With rapid economic growth, numerous multinational companies and higher than average wages, Ireland seemed like a perfect destination. Whereas Ireland’s economic competitiveness has not disappeared completely, the country has been hit especially hard by the economic recession. Whether you are a returning native, travelling to Ireland to take advantage of the opportunities, or are looking for a different lifestyle, Ireland can be the perfect destination.
Ireland lies to the northwest of continental Europe, and is bordered by Great Britain, the Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea and the Irish Sea. Ireland is located on the third largest island in Europe, and the island is divided between the Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. A war of independence in the beginning of the 20th century led to the partition of the island, creating the Irish Free State which gained increasing sovereignty over the next decades and Northern Ireland, which remained part of the United Kingdom.
Ireland can boast a unique and rich culture which has had an important influence on many other cultures. Ireland also has a varied geography and stunning landscapes and is home to two UNESCO World Heritage sites. Starting from the 1990s, the Republic of Ireland experienced unprecedented economic growth, and the country was ranked very high for quality of life and had a large variety of business and employment opportunities to offer.
Ireland has been hit hard by the economic recession, unemployment levels can be rather high in some sectors and the the quality of life is not as high as it used to be even 5 years ago. However, the country can still boast a developed economy, a large number of multinational, and especially American companies and diverse business opportunities. If you move to Ireland, you will also have the chance to explore a rich culture, emerald green landscapes, and a potentially more relaxed lifestyle.
