800 euro per month without rent? What kind of luxury life is that. Unrealistic for most people tbh.

Hello,

Does a salary of 53000 € / Year (before tax) sufficient for a family of 2 or 3 persons in Galway, Ireland?
Darius on Oct 30, 2018:
Dear Adam,

A salary of 28000 € per year for a family of 5 is not enough for living in Galway. It would be enough for one person only.
