URBAN AREA IN
RENT OR BUY
There are many compelling reasons why the Mid West is now a preference for people to live and work in. Affordability, accessibility, lack of congestion, stunning scenery and amenities, a diverse workforce and a vibrant cultural heartbeat are among them.
Its capital, Limerick, is Ireland’s third largest city with a population of over half a million people living within 1 hours drive of it. Spread out to other regional urban centres – such as Ennis, Nenagh, Newcastle West, Roscrea, Shannon and Thurles that are all superbly connected by road/rail – and the affordability improves again.
Limerick has been identified as the most affordable urban area in Ireland in which to both rent and buy residential property
The MidWest is the only region in Ireland outside Dublin that has an airport, Shannon, with direct links to all key markets – UK, mainland Europe and the US
The MidWest is part of the wider southern region which, according to Eurostat, has a gross domestic product (GDP) per person of €74,700. That’s well over twice the European average of €30,000 and the third best in the EU
