United Kingdom versus Ireland - which one better to live?

12 Nov 2007 /  #1
Which one is better for living (people, living standards, less crime, racism, average wages, prices etc.) in Your opinion?

I'd pick Ireland, but I've never been to the UK.

Why not choose Wales? Then, if learning English isn't enough for you, you could learn Welsh too.

There's a huge diffence between "but" and "because" ;-)

Actually I know a lot about England because many of my friends, family members etc. are/were there.

My brother (as un-Polish as I am, obviously) found settling in to a new job and new home in Ireland very easy. He made lots of friends and the people were easy-going and seemed to appreciate the people who were contributing to Ireland's new-found diversity.

He then moved to Merseyside, which doesn't seem to be nearly as much fun. I'd hazard a guess that the Republic of Ireland may be a little bit friendlier and more welcoming than the United Kingdom. The Republic of Donkia is a different story...

Ireland. I worked in London as an immigrant for a few years but was delighted to return to Dublin. I think Poland is very warm and friendly place also. Thats why I think Irish and Polish get on well together.

As an in a small rural town, Polish people have gotten on well here, just today in my bank, the person in front of me in a queue and behind me, were Polish, and the 4 guys outside painting the bank...were Polish too!

It all depends on what you look for, and what your expectations are.

Hopefully most people have had a great experince, if at times difficult, but there will always be a small proportion for whom its a nightmare.......but hopefully fewer in Ireland!

Polish people have lots in common with the Irish.......maybe a bit less with the English, which may make a difference.

Bank of Ireland launched its Polish business proposition in July 2007, with a specific package targeted at those Polish nationals thinking of setting up businesses in Ireland.

The bank offers: two years free banking; translated versions of all its account-opening documentation; and a comprehensive start up guide. Polish-speaking business advisors are also provided and the bank holds regular enterprise evenings during which Polish entrepreneurs give advice.

The next meeting is taking place in Cork on 20 February.
