Known as the Emerald Isle, Ireland is a beautiful place to live and work. Whether you’re moving to Ireland from the UK, Europe, or travelling from further afield, the island has much to offer. However, Ireland has a strong cultural identity that you will feel even if you’re moving from a nearby country. Therefore removals to Ireland require planning and organisation.
Ireland gets its nickname from its stunning green landscape; It offers residents the chance to escape from the city and breathe in some fresh air. Whether you live in the buzzing Dublin or the relaxing and rural Dingle, the Irish countryside is never far away.
Part of the EU, the Irish economy is bouncing back after enduring a tough time during the recession. Ireland uses the euro as its currency.
The climate in Ireland is typically north Atlantic European: mild and unreliable summers, cold but not freezing winters.
Being part of the EU, if you’re moving from an EEA country, the customs process is relatively easy and straightforward provided you avoid bringing any prohibited items.
If you’re moving to Ireland from further afield, such as the US, you’ll need to fill in a bit more paperwork but the customs process is still quite simple compared to some other countries. When you’re deciding what items to bring, bear in mind that Ireland will have a different electrical system and in some cases, it may be easier to purchase an Irish replacement upon arrival.
It’s possible to take your car to Ireland, but you must have owned it for at least six months and will need to register it when you arrive.
