Crazy, I was about to pose a question about the *exact* same salary - so I have to say thanks for the info as well. |
: This is a very nice salary for Ireland. The
: average industrial wage is about 35,000 euro
: and the majority of families in Ireland live
: on lots less than 60,000 euro per year.
: After taxes, you'll safely have 40,000 euro
: in hand. Average rent in dublin at the end
: of 2011 was 1,050 per month and utilities
: will cost about another 400 per month
: figuring generously. Figure 1500 a month for
: built in costs - or 18,000 euro per year.
: That leaves 22,000 per year for travel, car,
: insurance, doctor visits, food,
: entertainment, drink, etc. Roughly 1800 per
: Your costs will vary depending on your
: spending priorities - no car and you'll have
: plenty of money to travel around Europe, get
: a car and Irish vacations will be easier but
: parking charges might come into play and
: there's insurance, petrol, payments and all
: In general, though, the 60,000 is the
: minimum necessary to get you a green card
: and ease your way through the work
: permission mine field and you should have no
: problem at all making ends meet on that
: Those tax figures are very ballpark and
: there may be a few thousand extra in hand
: there as well.
: So, worry not, you should do fine.

: Hi everyone,
: I live in Brazil and I received a job offer
: to work in Dublin as a Java Developer with a
: salary of € 60,000 , per year. If
: everything works as expected I'm moving to
: Ireland until the end of this year.
: I don't have relatives nor friends in
: Ireland so I'll have to rent a place to live
: after I immigrate. I'm wondering if €
: 60,000 is a good salary to live under these
: conditions in Dublin. How much does a middle
: class person usually spend monthly paying
: the bills and having some fun?
: Can anybody help me with this question?
: Thanks in advance.
