Hey guys, what will you say about a salary of 1850 eur/month in Cork? is it barely enough or good enough to live normal?
StevieG on Apr 26, 2019:
They have discount shops in the city center like Txmax and H&M but if you need cheaper yet there are dollar/bargain stores as well.

Does anyone know the average costs of bedding, linens, and basic kitchenware? I'm working on a budget for my term abroad. Thanks!
