Accommodations:
After securing a job, the process of finding accommodation in Ireland is the next big step.

Housing in Ireland:
The various choices of accommodations include houses, apartments, or house shares. House shares (renting a private bedroom in a shared house), are a very common option in Ireland. Rents and house prices vary widely by location and are usually very high in cities. While rent in Dublin is higher than other parts of the country, it also has the widest range of amenities and access to jobs, as well as an excellent transport system. However, in big areas the housing market is more competitive. Rented houses and apartments in Ireland are usually fully furnished.

Renting in Ireland:

Your lease portrays conditions such as the rate of rent, the duration of the lease and what will happen if the terms are broken. The duration of a lease is usually around for 6 or 12 months. You can find rentals by searching online, or through visiting a letting agency. Searching online is a great way to see options and get ahead before the big move from your home country.
Letting agents can also help you find the perfect home, and may also provide administrative management and other services for the property. However, there will be a fee added. The payment of bills may include electricity, gas or oil, internet, phone, water, and waste. It is very important to know what bills, if any, are included in the rent.

When applying to rent accommodation in Ireland, the following documentation may be necessary to present:

  • Employer reference, including the address and telephone number to prove employment
  • Previous landlord reference, including the address and telephone number
  • A valid photo ID to confirm your identity
  • Bank details, to show that you are financially secure enough to pay rent

Renting and Your Rights:

  • When you first sign a lease, rent cannot be changed for 24 months.
  • After this time, you must be given at least 90 days-notice of a rent increase
  • After an increase, your rent cannot be increased again for a further 24 months
  • Rent must not exceed the market rate

When renting, you will usually need to provide a security deposit. This fee is returned at the end of the lease unless the terms have been broken. Landlords can keep security deposits when damage has been done to the property, contents have been taken, or bills have been left unpaid. Deposits can’t be kept over ‘normal wear and tear’ such as faded carpets, chipped paint or worn furniture.

Buying a House in Ireland:
If you want to settle in Ireland on a longer term basis, the purchase of a home may make more financial sense than renting. Prices vary widely based on location and proximity to transit links.

Homes for sale can be found through estate agents, auctioneers, or an online search. All homes for sale must have a Building Energy Rating (BER), which details its energy efficiency. It is recommended that you hire a surveyor to examine a property for structural defects before buying, as sellers are not obligated to disclose this information.

Most home buyers in Ireland will need mortgage approval first. First time buyers can typically purchase homes of up to €220,000 with a 10% mortgage. You will have to provide proof of permanent employment as well as your deposit. You can also expect to pay for legal fees, registration of deeds, and stamp duty.

Temporary Accommodation:
If you choose to start your search after you arrive, there are lots of options when it comes to temporary accommodation. Besides the usual hotels and hostels, increasingly popular short-term apartment rentals such as Airbnb and HomeAway can be a great way for you to live like a local and experience different neighborhoods in your new city while you arrange viewings.
