I would like to move to England or Ireland within the next few years, but I have to idea about different towns and such. I am not much of a city person, and I would also like to be by the beach. Any suggestions?

I'm based in the city of Cork..down south in Ireland. I guess you will know it if I tell you that the Titanic made it's last port of call to one of Cork's suburb known as COBH..spoken as COVE..but was known then as QUEENSTOWN.

Of course I am going to tell you CORK is the place to settle here in Ireland, as there isa little bit of everything to be had. You can settle in the city, which might appear as only a small town to you, coming from the states, but you can also relocate to the countryside, which is only a bus ride away from the city in most cases.

One thing though is that you might find dollar might not go as far as you might want or like. Roughly, you are looking a dollar being worth about 80cents here..give or take. It is even worst if you move to England!

The climate here is temperate..meaning it rains about every 3 days out of 5..again, give or take, but for the most, these are only light showers and can be refreshing at times..if you like nature. (Don't ask..if you like nature, then you will understand what I mean!)

I hope this of some help to you.

All the best..

Will you be going there for studies? Swansea in Wales has superb sandy beaches and a nice University on the sea front. It has a very friendly "American studies" departement.
