The Irish lifestyle

What comes to mind when you think of Ireland? Guinness? Pubs? Rolling green hills and Conor McGregor?

Whilst all of the aforementioned may be Irish icons, what really makes the Emerald Isle an attractive place for visitors and ex-pats is its lifestyle. It may be a small country, but it has so much to offer including its rich culture, diverse artistic talent and lively people.

Ireland has lured in expats and visitors for many years' seeking to discover its unique storybook scenery, gentle way of life, traditions and history. The streets in the country also offer a distinctive vibrant culture of music, dance, and poetry. This lively musical culture is oftened found in Ireland's many pubs. Taking a walk through any city in the country, and you will find more pubs per square foot than anything else. Whether you are in search of a small quiet pub with a handful of locals, or a full-on standing room only, shout-over-the-noise pub, Ireland has it.

And how could we forget St. Patrick's day? The cultural and religious celebration held on the 17 March, celebrates the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland. With festivities lasting for several days, the country celebrates with shamrocks, wearing green and hosting a variety of public parades and festivals. The holiday has spread worldwide with more countries celebrating the day than any other national festival. 

Ireland's close proximity to Europe and America, make travelling around the EU affordable and easy. With daily flights to almost all European capital cities, it is easy to break away to sunshine in Portugal, Italy or Spain for a long weekend.

And if you prefer to stay in the country and see the sites, why not try your hand at a round of golf? With more than 300 golf courses, Ireland has a course for everyone including professionals and amateurs. And if golf isn't for you, why not take a journey to Connemara and see the old traditional methods of hand cutting bogs for winter fuel, or witness the iconic Cliffs of Moher, kiss the stone at the Blarney Castle or enjoy a pint at the Guinness Storehouse?

Deciding whether to move to the rolling green hills, be close to the sea or live in the some of the best metropolitian cities worldwide, Ireland has something for everyone.
