Hi Conor.

Welcome to Irishgardeners.com

I take it you are familiar with Horticulture Weekly and the other trade magazines? - speaking from a garden centre angle business is good, employment opportunities within the sector are high, and there is a skill shortage in Ireland for suitable qualified people to work in retail horticulture.

With regards to the landscaping sector here in County Donegal (the far north west of Ireland) business is also good.

There is no specific employment site for our industry here, perhaps you could try www.fas.ie where you can list your skills and advertise yourself for free.

Are you looking to move to Ireland as a 'life change' or is it for economic reasons, as I would suggest that earnings in London would be higher than Dublin, but your living expenses in Dublin may be higher than London.....think abour Cork, Limerick or even Belfast.?

Hi Conor,

Since you've Mayo heart strings....

You should try Horkans Garden Centres in Turlough, Co Mayo. They are always looking for good qualified staff. Perhaps you could try there for say 6 months, see how you enjoy Ireland and this may open doors for you to other areas of the industry.

If your looking for life enhancing your definitely looking to settle on the Western seaboard of Ireland. Forget Dublin, they standard of living is much better when you come rural. GPI will agree about the joys of living in the 'Wesht'.

Horkans are by far one of the best and largest garden centres in Ireland, winning many awards. They have quality centres in Mayo, Sligo and Galway.....

Let me know is this interests you as I have contact names etc I can give you.

Cheers
Gareth
