The City of Dublin

Dublin is famous for many things, from its vibrant nightlife and picturesque vistas to its friendly locals.

1. Quality of life

Mercer’s 18th Annual Quality of Living survey placed Dublin ahead of London, Edinburgh, New York City and Tokyo, coming in at a commendable 33rd place. The city’s stable political environment, low pollution levels and positive socio-cultural environment have been cited as main reasons for its success in the survey.

2. For the Cost of living

While life in Dublin can be more expensive than other parts of Ireland, it’s considerably cheaper than London and some other parts of the UK, thanks largely to its significantly more affordable property prices (both buying and renting). Transport is also more affordable than in the English capital, as is childcare.
Dublin’s cost of living is generally cheaper than other major cities such as New York, Sydney and Singapore, yet it still packs a powerful punch when it comes to entertainment, nightlife and culture. There’s nothing better than getting more bang for your buck!

3. For the fresh air

If you’re moving to Dublin from the hustle and bustle of a major city, Dublin will feel like a breath of fresh air. With lower levels of air pollution and less congestion, the city has the advantage of having plenty of entertainment opportunities while still being near countryside such as County Wicklow, Enniskerry and the seaside town of Skerries. Enjoy day trips to the peace and quiet of nature reserves all within an hour of Dublin.

4. For the people

It’s been said that the Irish are some of the friendliest people in the world, and indeed the nation has been ranked as the world’s friendliest by Lonely Planet in 2008
