Ireland is a country that blends the old with the new. Modern development occurs next to age old structures. Once a country whose nationals would move overseas for opportunity, Ireland now retains its own nationals as well as attracting foreign visitors and investment. As a member of the European Union (EU), Ireland is able to capitalize on all the economic benefits this association affords.
The Republic of Ireland is a parliamentary democracy. Legislative power rests with a bicameral National Parliament, Oireachtas Éireann, with a 60-member Senate or Seanad, and a 166-member House of Representatives or Dáil. Members of Oireachtas serve a five-year term.
While some Irish still choose to emigrate, many young Irish are returning home or choosing to stay. The cities of the Republic are not only bustling with a bright young population, but the economy is humming with new technology, increasing investment, and growing per-capita income. High-tech business has quickened the pace of life. Ireland's reputation as a center for modern business and culture has grown rapidly.
The types of housing available in and around Irish cities can vary considerably, depending on the area and your own requirements. Traditional multi-unit housing estates, buildings converted from previous uses, townhouses, semi-detached houses, and detached houses are all potential options.
Houses and apartments, which are sometimes smaller than those in nearby countries, are generally comfortable. Older homes may be more difficult to heat.
Currently, there are three international schools in Dublin and the surrounding area.
In Dublin, parents will find that teenagers in their immediate neighborhood may be attending a variety of schools and use the excellent public transportation in Dublin.
There are no international schools available in Cork, Galway, and Limerick. Expatriates generally send their children to the local school of their choice subject to availability.
