Northern Ireland – Offering a work-life balance like no other
While the COVID pandemic has had a devastating effect on the lives of many across the world, it has also led to an unprecedented number of people taking a step back and evaluating their lives and priorities. One big reassessment that has been undertaken, is where we call home now that we’re all working from home. One of the many beneficiaries of this soul-searching has been Northern Ireland. This is due largely to the fact that there are so many benefits of moving back home to this beautiful part of the world.
Northern Ireland boasts an extremely high and easy-going quality of lifestyle. As a country, it places great emphasis on the friendliness of the people and the quality of life they all enjoy. Property prices in Northern Ireland are also well below those in major neighbouring cities like Dublin, London and New York. Add to that the excellent education system, world-class healthcare service and highly efficient public transport system and you have few obstacles to enjoying a contented and productive work-life balance.
Northern Ireland is also quite a small country. Believe it or not, you can cross it by car in about two hours. And that’s whether you’re going east to west or north to south. As well as making for shorter commuting times, the country’s small size and close proximity to stunning beaches and awe-inspiring mountains, ensure you’re never short of something fun to do or somewhere magical to go. Wherever you’re travelling, you’ll be met with an abundance of beautiful scenery, action-packed activities and a wide range of cultural attractions. This includes cinemas, leisure centres, theatres, galleries, entertainment centres, pubs and clubs.
The very definition of the great outdoors, Northern Ireland also boasts world-famous coastlines, castles, mountains and lakes. That’s not forgetting that we are also home to some of the best golf courses in the world, frequently graced by the best players on the planet. And once you’ve worked up an appetite going around 18 glorious holes, you’ll never have to go far to find unforgettable local fare in one of the many award-winning restaurants dotted across a country.
From the friendly people and unforgettable sights to the quality of lifestyle and ease of getting around, this is a place that really can provide it all. So, if you’re looking for somewhere new from which to work from home, you’ll feel right at home in Northern Ireland.
