Ireland Cost of Living

Living Costs in Ireland
Before deciding to study Ireland, you should ensure that you have sufficient funds to cover your costs of living. For students who require a visa, being able to demonstrate this will form part of your application. While you may be able to undertake part-time work during your time here, you should not have to rely on this income to meet all your expenses.

Precisely how much you will need will vary depending on where you are studying in Ireland, on the type of accommodation you choose and, of course, on your own personal lifestyle. But, on average, we estimate that a student will spend between €5,000 and €10,000 per year.

Rent (per week) €127.00
Utilities (per week) €31.00
Food (per week) €46.00
– Public Transport (per week)
– Taxis (per trip)
– Pub/Bar (per visit)
– Cinema   (per visit)
– Restaurant (per visit)
– Mobile Phone (per week)
Total €274.50 (per week)

Note: Estimated living costs for the rest of the country is generally cheaper as rent is much cheaper in the secondary cities in Ireland.

One-Off Costs
As well as your course costs, there are other one-off costs (this means costs which you only have to pay once, not regularly) which you may have to pay if you are travelling to Ireland. Make a note of the ones which apply to you and estimate the total cost of these.
• Visa application
• Travel insurance
• Medical insurance
• Post/baggage to/from Ireland
• Registration with police
• Television
• Mobile phone
• Deposit for Accommodation

You will probably have to pay a deposit if you move into accommodation that is privately owned. This is usually the same amount as about 4 weeks of rent. It should be returned to you at the end of your stay unless you have damaged the property in some way.
