Welcome To Irish Around Oz – The Website For Irish People Moving To Australia

Thanks for stopping by!

Moving to Australia? You are in the right place! Pop over to my blog here or learn more about me below.

I first moved to Perth, Australia on a working holiday visa back in June 2013! Seems like a zillion years ago now.

I literally had no idea what to expect!

Shortly after a few months in Australia, I quickly realised there was no website or resources for Irish people moving to Australia.

So I set up this very blog you are reading! And some few years later it has helped not only Irish people moving, but hundreds of thousands of others and I am incredibly grateful for all of you.

I simply wrote blog posts answering the very questions I had while growing some amazing Irish community pages and groups at the same time.

Was it easy? Nope! Many, many, many hours went into this website before I even made a single $.

Now it is my full-time job(yay).

You can subscribe to my email list here, and I will send you a series of emails giving you everything you need to know about moving to Australia and how I built this blog.

You can unsubscribe anytime, and it is not just for Irish people.

A new job board for Irish people moving to Australia and returning home:

Job board for Irish people in Australia

I don’t like to brag, but when I hear about the work ethic of Irish people abroad, things are generally positive.

I had hundreds of companies messaging me to post this job and that job to hire Irish people in Oz.

So I have set up a brand new job board! (Yay)

It only cost $30 for a 30-day listing and is socially shared to all of the pages and groups that I have built since 2013!

So whether you are just about to arrive in Oz and are looking for work or leaving Australia forever pop on over to the job board here.

If you are migrating back to Ireland be sure to join my group Irish expats returning to Ireland.

My flight team for flights from Australia to Ireland!

One of the great things about building such a large Irish community in Australia is that you quickly find out what kind of services people need.

Now obviously people are going to need flights, haha but I really wanted a reliable flight service that I could rely on and offer the lowest possible fares.

That is why every two weeks myself and Student Flights in Randwick, Sydney put together the cheapest one way and return flights from Australia over a six month period.

We send them straight to our flight email subscribers(you can register for free here) and later to the blog.

You can lay by a lot of the flight deals meaning you can pay it off bit by bit which is very useful for a lot of people.

We were even able to sponsor one of the biggest GAA club events in Sydney.

If you just want to get a quote for some cheap flights home(it doesn’t have to be Ireland) fill in the quick quote form here or email the team directly at Irisharoundoz@studentflights.com.au

You don’t have to be a student to use this service!

Together we have booked 1000’s of flights and saved many $1000’s to those using the service.

Below are some articles to get you started and ready for moving to Australia.
