I love my native city of Dublin for its history, culture, witty and friendly people, proximity to the sea and mountains, but I would strongly discourage anyone from moving here right now. The housing situation is out of control and getting worse and worse. If you're not rich you will end up desperate and probably sharing an overpriced room with 3 people. If you are well paid, eg. in tech, you will be able to find somewhere overpriced but you'll be gentrifying the city and forcing out locals. Unfortunately our government are mostly landlords and so will do nothing to regulate rent & housing. Sorry.
