Benefits of working in Ireland

There are countless benefits to building your medical career in Ireland, including the opportunity to experience an exceptionally friendly and welcoming country.

With doctors in demand in Ireland, there are some excellent packages on offer and eligibility rules are more flexible than most.

Ireland’s airports are also very accessible from many European countries (cheap flights home).

Typical permanent salaries in Ireland range from €50,000 – €70,000 for a registrar and €120,000 – €140,000 for a consultant.

Hourly rates for locums are typically between €50-€70 per hour for a registrar and €87-€95 for a consultant.

Please note that relocation packages and benefits vary depending on the role, grade and hospital or region chosen.
