  • Is accommodation easy to find & how much would I expect to pay?

    Accommodation is reasonably priced in comparison to other European cities. It is less expensive if you move away from the city centre. If you are prepared to share with a group it is considerably less expensive. On average, weekly rent is approx. 100 Euros. We will offer lots of advice. Accommodation will be arranged for you before you arrive in Ireland. This will only be temporary accommodation and it will be necessary to seek your own accommodation within 2 - 4 weeks. To find your own accommodation the best sources are through your local newspaper, friends or work colleagues or property management centres/local auctioneers. Check out www.daft.ie which is excellent.
