Submitted by admin on Fri, 11/24/2023 - 15:03

In Tipperary, remote work stands as a balance between job commitment and personal life. This flexibility allows professionals more time for personal endeavours and family while still maintaining productivity . Beyond the job, it's about enriching one’s life. The approach here is clear: combine professional growth with personal fulfilment, achieving a well-rounded work-life experience.

Remote working has facilitated many people to move from urban environments to rural parts of Ireland and Tipperary has seen its share of new arrivals. A key attraction, of course, is the quality of life that rural Ireland can provide. Tipperary has many characteristics that contribute to a good quality of life for its citizens that can influence people to choose to live and work in the county. These attributes can be turned into significant advantages for the Midlands:

  • The cost of living has been estimated to be around one-third less than large urban areas
  • Through rural in character Tipperary has major towns located across the county, offering all the facilities expected of urban areas in a rural setting
  • Beautiful coastline is within 30 minutes travel time
  • Part of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and Ireland’s Ancient East, Tipperary boasts a host of activities and attractions for visitors and residents including the world-famous Rock of Cashel.
  • Tipperary is home to an array of outdoor activities including water sports on the Suir, Shannon and Lough Derg, walks and trails in numerous mountain ranges and home to the scenic splendour of the Golden Vale.
  • Tipperary has 4 major general hospitals within 30 minutes travel time.
  • Three major cities are within 90 minutes travel time.
  • Tipperary is well served with schools and colleges from primary to third-level and for transport to colleges outside the county.

In addition to the hubs in larger towns considerable progress is being made to ensure that the rural BCP’s can be sites for remote working. These are in areas where broadband connectivity has been most limited in the past and this initiative has delivered 21 entirely new remote working locations on stream. It is also expected that smaller remote working sites will be established in villages in the coming years where there is demand. The government’s Our Rural Future policy document includes a number of commitments that will help facilitate the provision of such services in the coming years
