DUBLIN is ahead of London, but lagging well behind other developed cities as an attractive posting for expats.

The Irish capital has ranked as just the 34th best place to live, according to Mercer’s Quality of Living review.

Dublin’s ranking is ahead of London and Paris, but far behind a number of comparable EU cities, including top-ranked Vienna – which ranked first for overall quality of living for the 8th year running. Zurich, Munich, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Copenhagen and Basel all ranked in the top 10.

Cities were ranked on criteria including crime, housing, recreational facilities, climate, and political stability.
