Ok, so my husband and I are seriously considering moving to Ireland before the year is out. Can anyone tell me what part of Ireland would be ideal for finding jobs and raising three young children? We want to move to an area with a small town feel. We want to get to know the neighbors, the baker and the candlestick maker, so to speak. However, we both need to be close enough to a city to work, as I'm in IT and he's an Architect. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated. Dublin or Galway? By the way, I prefer not to live where it rains often, but I suppose I could get used it for my family's sake!
