Working in the EU

"As a European Union (EU) citizen, you have the right to live and work in any other EU country. If you are an EU national or a dependant of such a national and you meet the requirements of the EU Directives on free movement of workers, you may not, in general, be refused permission to land in another EU country. You may require a valid identity card or passport."
Thanks. Still valuable I guess but I'm too lazy to dig up the documentation.

Just a note of caution: I was travelling from Austria to Germany in January 2018. We were stopped at the border in a random check and needed passports, drivers license, rental car papers, etc. I don't suggest you cross borders in Europe without a passport.

Good advice, you can always be subject to a passport check even without leaving the country you are in. We have had to show our passports 3 times while never leaving the USA. Twice on driving trips to Big Bend National Park and once in 2015 while driving on I-10 to California from Houston. (They diverted the whole of the westbound I-10 traffic to a border control checkpoint).

But, bmcgonig just pointed out that Ireland is not under the Schengen agreement so I guess the Irish passport is not such a valuable ticket.


You are confusing a border control agreement with the separate rights of EU citizens. To travel from Ireland to a Schengen country you need to show your passport to show that you are an EU citizen (and not from somewhere else) to gain access. Your rights as an EU citizen is separate. You have the right to live and work in any EU country, including all Schengen.

As one of (I guess) the few on here who actually live in Ireland ... I cannot imagine why anyone would want to retire to here ?

Weather weather .... and weather , would be the main reason.
Having lived for 5 + years in a warm climate (India and Brazil) ... my preference would be for somewhere drier !!

I started doing a garden project last August ... planned for about two weeks work. Got one of them done , ground has not been dry enough since to get the 2nd week completed ... think about that !

Usual story ... if you live somewhere cold ... you will "dream" about living somewhere warm , and visa versa , and wet vs dry ... and and and.....

Answer : ? Spend part of the yr in A and part in B.

Anyone who has an Irish-born parent is by birthright an Irish citizen, no matter where one is born. One can claim that citizenship by applying for an Irish (EU) passport at any Irish consulate. Youíll need a copy of one parentís birth certificate, your birth certificate, and other documents. It costs about $150 US.

One can also claim Irish citizenship if oneís grandparents were born in Ireland. This also allows one to an EU passport. I believe Italy is the only other European country (maybe Holland) that allows this. Iíve heard the EU wants to standardize this so this right may be repealed.

Once you have an Irish (EU) passport, you need to establish residency in Ireland for six months to obtain many citizen rights.
