Moving to Ireland from Canada

Ireland is a country closely connected and proud of their harmonious uniqueness, as well as the differences from UK and EU cultures. Canadian wide spaces tend to support multi cultural differences easily. This significant shift in perspective comes with moving to Ireland. It is also an easy one to accept as the rich history, beautiful countryside, established culture make for a obvious general enjoyment of life and great new friends.

Ireland enjoys the benefits of low corporate tax rates (i.e. 12.5% in 2022, the lowest in the developed world) and a growing Intellectual Property base. These drive a full employment putting pressure on housing availability. Also contributes to their earned reputation for traffic being difficult. Even with the most careful Move Management, weather, accessibility and traffic, impact the move in costs unexpectedly. Summer moves do reduce risks and tend to result in more predictable move ins.

Picking what to take can contribute to the best moving value. Items like the warm clothing that layers have been good choices, given the cost in Ireland versus Canada. Electrical appliances that are 110 volt will need convertors with enough wattage to work in the 220 volt Irish setting so buying new in Ireland an option. Remember also that rooms tend to be on the small side and consider furniture fitting. In summary it is best to take only those items that bring real joy to your Irish life.
