Moving to Ireland

Post by prspeaks » Sun Apr 14, 2019 2:57 pm

Hello,

I would be Moving to Galway for ~5-6 months mostly in June/July alone. Can some one help me as to what things to I need to take care of

This will be my first travel to Ireland. I am hoping to get things from India that will be either be expensive in Ireland.
  • My office would be near Mervue Business Park , So any good place of accommodation in near by area ?
  • How is the transportation in Galway/Ireland. Is the public transport well connected ? as I dont intend to rent a monthly car.
  • Can you suggest the things that I should buy here in India? (for ex. Clothes.).Since it's cold in Ireland, would you recommend buying winter clothes in India or do branded clothes have same prices when comparing India to Ireland?
  • Any Indian appliance(Cooker) that I may need to bring or any Spices that I need to bring (Like Spices, etc )
  • Are the OTC Medicines that are generally available in India also available in Ireland too ?
Many thanks,
Prakash

June/July would be okay. Get a good waterproof indian winter jacket and buy proper winter clothing in ireland.
  • Any Indian appliance(Cooker) that I may need to bring or any Spices that I need to bring (Like Spices, etc )
Get cooker and mixer. Get some spices sufficient for first month.

Some general cold/cuff/fever medicines are available. Anything else would be better to get from india with prescription.
