As Ireland's largest port city, shipping and removals to Dublin are relatively simple. Expats can hire shipping companies from almost anywhere in the world to deliver to Dublin.


Shipping personal items to Dublin

Expats should be careful what they bring to Dublin, as accommodation is often smaller than what they may be used to in their home country. That being said, a common complaint about rented accommodation in Dublin is the outdated decor, and expats may want to weigh the pros and cons of shipping their own household goods and buying new furniture in Dublin. Purchasing in the city can often be cheaper than packaging, sending and insuring shipped household goods.

Expensive shipped items should be insured. Air freight is a good option for smaller cargo, although there are often weight limits.

Shipping from North America can take several weeks. Shipping from mainland Europe will likely only take a few days, and expats can also consider driving their household goods over themselves.
