Are you an Irish person living abroad? We want to know your housing story
In a follow-up to our look at housing in Ireland, we want to find out what it’s like living abroad.

LAST WEEK, WE shared 90 stories from Ireland’s housing crisis. 

We had a huge response when we asked people to share their housing stories here – whether they be renters, homeowners, buyers, or otherwise.

This week, we want to find out more about what it’s like for the Irish living abroad.

What is it like to rent? What housing opportunities and attitudes exist where you’re settled? Do you own, or is owning a house not a big deal there? Do you have different rights as a renter where you live now?

Let us know:

  • How easy you found getting housing
  • What the attitude is in the country you live in to renting and buying
  • How much housing costs in the town/city/country
  • Any comparisons you can make to your previous situation in Ireland

Whether you’re abroad for one year or 20, renter, buyer, or otherwise, we want to hear your story.

Share your housing abroad story with us by emailing, using the subject line ‘My housing story abroad’. You can choose to be anonymous if you wish.
