Rent and housing are the most important commodities when you move to another city. It would take up a larger portion of one’s monthly salary. It is the most important thing aside from food, and it will take up a larger percentage of your monthly budget.
This aspect is what Dublin is winning over London.
Let’s say we want to rent a 1-bedroom apartment in the center of Dublin. This would be approximately 1,600 euros in Dublin. The difference is approximately 350 Euros in London. A one-bedroom apartment in London’s city center would run you between 1,900 and 2,000 Euros.
If you are looking to rent a bit further out of the city centre, you can expect to pay around 1,350 Euros. It would cost you around 1,450 euros in London. It is possible that the difference could be smaller. Rent may be slightly cheaper. However, it is important to consider the transportation costs if you live outside of the city centre.
You would pay more if you moved in with your family.
An apartment with three bedrooms in Dublin’s city centre would cost approximately 3,025 euros. The same apartment in the same area in London costs approximately 3,720 Euros. This would represent a difference of around 23%. That’s quite a difference!
We mentioned that rent costs are one of the largest chunks of your budget. It is also one the most important.
These costs must be considered before you move.
It would be a good idea if you had a job in your new area before you moved. It would be difficult if you don’t have a job.
What is the average salary for a job in each city?
To live comfortably in London, you will need a minimum monthly income of £5,500. To be happy in Dublin, you will only need to have at least 5,100 euros per month. This is before tax.
If you are moving to these areas, make sure that you have a job before you move. It is a good idea to at least be aware of the amount you get if you do not have a job.
Is Dublin more dangerous than London?
Dublin is losing when it comes to the number homicides.
London has fewer cases than Dublin. London has far fewer homicides than Dublin. Ireland would see a lot more homicides in a single year than Ireland. When crimes occur in Dublin, you will rarely find anyone charged. Dublin is a great place to start a business.
It is obvious that one is more likely to be killed in Dublin than in London. The difference in crime rates between these two cities is only 9%, according to the numbers.
However, Dublin is not the most homicide-prone region in terms of the number. Scotland is the top of the list, with a murder rate at 1.6 per 100,000 people. The entire British Isles region has Scotland at the top of the list.
Ireland, where Dublin is located, is second in Northern Ireland. These two countries have a homicide ratio of 1.2 per 100,000 people.
With a homicide rate at 1.1, Wales and England (where London is), are in the last place. This would mean that there should be 1.1 murders per 100,000 people.
