Making friends in Dublin

It can be difficult to move to a new city. This difficulty can be compounded by the fact you are not a native speaker of the language spoken by locals. Fortunately Dublin is home to thousands of international students and expats. Ireland has become a very attractive place to study as you are likely to find a job while you study. If you are studying at university the job prospects are very good. This has brought a lot of people from all over the world to start a new life in Ireland.

As a result of this influx of people it tends to be easier than most cities to make new friends. There are a lot of people arriving every month from all over trying to expand their social circles. When you walk down the streets of Dublin or go to any of the bars in Dublin you will see this very clearly.

The most prominent nationalities in Dublin are Romanians, Lithuanians, Brazilian, Polish, Indian, Italian, French and Spanish.

As a result of this migration the website meetup.com is very popular. Groups are created based on particular interests. Such as speaking English, Travel, Business etc. Most groups organise events weekly, usually in a pub in the city centre. They provide a great way to meet new people in Dublin with a shared interest.

Going to bars and pubs in Dublin are also a great way to meet new people. Most people are open to starting a conversation.
