Having spent about a year in Ireland, I whole-heartedly agree with #15. Dublin is an overpriced shithole, London-level prices with none of the frills, or salaries. I worked for HP/Compaq there for EUR 1600 a month where a studio apartment already costs EUR 1100. In the end we lived miles away from the city, and spent 3 hours a day stuck in gridlock traffic (1 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon).After 3 months I had the shit, and bailed. Rang my boss from the deck of a ferry to England and said "Guess what I'm looking at? The Mountains of Mourne disappearing in the distance. You can shove that job up your ass."I'm not dissing all of Ireland though, the north-west has some awesome mountains and coastline worth a hiking trip and Belfast is a pretty cool city in it's own right, but Dublin, let me say it again, is a shithole. Don't go there.
