#rubenp7 on Apr 03, 2018 :
@#Sabit EKER that's like £525.00/ month is a very tight budget but doable in Belfast, however, I wouldn't live in Belfast.
#Sabit EKER on Mar 03, 2018 :
Hi everyone. I'm a student at maritime management study. I'll make internship for 2 months in Ireland. Which city would be better? My university pays 1200 euro grant for 2 months. Is it enough?
#Tony on Nov 19, 2017 :
I can email you a scanned copy of my shopping bill from a local store which easier than filling in your list as the weight etc can be different
#Gaurav Verma on Jul 12, 2016 :
What is the actual monthly expense in Belfast currently? Did it get affected after Brexit?
#Eoin on Apr 23, 2016 :
Belfast is a lovely city but I wouldn't live there. If you want to live in Ireland, Dublin would be a better option due to a vastly larger economy, salary expectations and job opportunities. Yet, Belfast does have its charm.
#Magda on Feb 21, 2016 :
I live in Belfast, Brandi. It's a lovely city with a heart of culture, but it depends on what sort of place you're looking for. Ireland has a lot of quiet, old-hearted cities, and a lot of modern, faster ones.
#Brandi on Feb 18, 2016 :
I want to visit ireland, but I'm not sure where in ireland to go. I'm hoping to find a place in Ireland to eventually call home. Does anyone have any suggestions?
