Firstly, in terms of our Education System - Ireland enjoys a worldwide reputation for high quality education. The cost varies across institutions and from city to city. Galway is the fourth largest city in Ireland thus the cost of living is fairly competitive. The good news is that international students are permitted to work part-time (a maximum of 20 hours per week)!

Also, Ireland has one of the highest rate for minimum wage in EU! As Galway is a tourist destination – there are many cafes, restaurants and hotels as well as the usual shops – so there is part-time work once you get out and about and start looking. Read our blog on how to find a job in Galway.
