I hope this is an appropriate place for this question as I'm not wanting to just visit but live and work in Ireland for a year or more. This is a relatively new thing I've decided to do and I'm still in the very, very beginning stages of planning. I could use some tips if you have any! I'm only plan on working 1 or 2 years there as the most.
My biggest question is, obviously, how do I legally work in Ireland! I'm 28 and currently working as full time as a baker, something I want to do in Ireland. However, I've been reading about Irish Work Permits and culinary seems to be listed as ineligible for said Permit. Unless I'm reading that wrong? And what's the difference between a Work Permit and a Working Holiday Authorisation? I'll admit, I can't really wrap my head around the various things I've read about working in Ireland as a US citizen.
My second biggest question is money and how much I should realistically have when I first get there. I'm really just looking for a estimate.
Other than that however, any general tips would be wonderful. Or, if this isn't the proper place for such questions, I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
