Living & Working

Galway has it all… a quaint, ancient city with cobbled streets alive with street entertainers and festivals, a city surrounded by the sea with a busy working port straddled by one of the most beautiful promenade walks in Europe. Just a few miles outside the bustling city centre you’ll find the serenity of Connemara with it’s majestic mountains, secluded beaches and amazing waves. There’s an abundance of schools and third level institutes, including NUIG and GMIT, making Galway an ideal place to grow up. House and rent prices are 30% lower than in Dublin, making living in Galway not only socially appealing but also economically viable. And working in Galway offers as many positive reasons to move here – Galway is home to some of the world’s major medical device and technology companies – with a thriving start-up business community. Careers in tourism, hospitality and the arts are also plentiful.
