retirement locations

I want to buy land on the Irish coast then live of the rest of my days in peace there. Is Ireland a good place to live this cozy lifestyle? I don't get why a country so empty is so expensive

    Because land is king here. Everybody wants it, not everybody can get it. To answer your question, small town/village/countryside Ireland is still pretty comfy provided you pick the right area can put up with minor annoyances and not having access to some of the things you are used to. However, much like with the rest of Europe the country us being eroded from the cities outward and the land is being bought up by foreign vulture funds who want to turn the country into the same grey urban hell as central Europe. Enjoy it while you can but don't trap yourself here, you will probably eventually want to leave.

    Because farming is a religion here and farmers will pay extortionate prices just to expand their empires by another few acres. Also EU regulations are also artificially inflating land prices.

    And no, this is not a comfy place to retire. The weather is diabolical. COL anong the highest in the EU for average infrastructure/goods/services. People no more friendly than anywhere else. I'm assuming you're American. . . Whatever charm you think this country has is simply not there anymore, its just a meme. Keep looking.

      >the weather is diabolical
      you must be joking. Ireland has one of the mildest climates on Earth, thanks to the Gulf Stream. 20 degree difference in high temps between January and July. By comparison, much of the US sees a 60+ degree difference, and that's just the averages! Extra-tropical storms can be severe, but they are far less common (and severe) than the supercell T-storms, windstorms, and hurricanes which blast their way across America on the regular.
      >COL among the highest in the EU
      Only Europoors would care. COL in Dublin is similar to most American cities, but without the violence and Black folk, snowstorms and heatwaves. Sounds fricking amazing.
      >people no more friendly than anywhere else
      My boss went to Ireland for ten days, he had nothing but great things to say about the Irish people. News articles show the Irish panicking over a drastic rise in the murder rate: from 24 to 47 murders in a year for a nation of 6.5 million. That is still half the murder rate of America's safest, Whitest state - Maine.
      >land prices
      A quarter acre of land suitable for building a home in my American town sells for 150,000 USD on average. Tell me again how expensive land is in Ireland.

        OK so you get 3-5C grey overcast days in January & 20-22C grey overcast days in July. Wow great climate. You can go weeks here without seeing blue skies, even during our 'summer'... it fricking sucks. I would take harsh snowy winters just to get actual 30C summer days.

        >land prices
        OK move out to the boonies and get cheaper land or is it a requirement you live right beside a Walmart?

        >COL
        All I'm saying is you get more bang for your buck elsewhere in the EU for the same standard of services or even better

        >people
        Your buddy, like every other Ameritard, views irish people through rose tinted glasses. We are completely Americanised at this point, there is no distinct cultural charm here anymore.

    This ranks Ireland at #23.
    But also usa at #5, and everyone knows, unless you have millions of dollars, usa is the worst.

    Also, sweden is at #3,
    https://livingcost.org/cost/sweden/switzerland
    >The average cost of living in Sweden ($1479) is 48% less expensive than in Switzerland ($2850)

    So, I'm not sure how the ranking works.
    Germany (#7 best) seems nice?

    Why don't you actually face life on its own terms instead of running away in your final years like all the boomers

    Cape Breton would be a good alternative if Ireland is too expensive.

        Ireland provides a life worth living. Cape breton is basically canadian midwest. Souless
