Frequently Asked Questions about Dublin

Can I arrive in Dublin and look for a job?

Expats from countries not part of the European Union shouldn't come to Ireland without a job. To qualify for a work permit they need to be sponsored by a company. However, expats from Europe do not need a work permit for employment in Ireland. It is still fairly easy to find low paying jobs while looking for other employment.
 

Do I need a car?

Probably not. The public transportation system is quite good and extends far out into the suburbs. However, commutes to far away schools can be a problem.
 

Is it easy to get over to the rest of Europe?

It is very easy to get over to mainland Europe or the UK. Northern Ireland is just a short drive and the rest of the UK is a ferry ride away. There are good deals to be found on low-cost airlines flying out of Ireland, and this is a cheap way to travel all over Europe.
