Ask the UK: more people than ever are applying to live in Ireland. It may be known for amazing castles, but don’t worry – you can find an affordable apartment to live in! You can purchase one for around $100,000.
If you’re in the EU, congratulations! You can move there no problem. However, Americans don’t have access to a retirement visa. If you want to move to Ireland, apply for a ‘D’ Visa which allows you to stay for 90 days. Once you prove steady income and sufficient savings of around 50,000 euros, you’ll be good to go.
