Dublin’s Docklands area has become extremely popular because of everything the area has to offer for technology. Since Ireland has very low tax rates, it is a major incentive for large companies to set up in this tech hub. They also offer large amounts of housing for executives in this area to be close to their offices. Lastly, Ireland is a part of the European Union, which gives them easy connections to other markets.
Despite the amazing views and positive atmosphere in the Docklands, I would not want to live there. I prefer to live closer to areas with a busier environment with museums, lots of restaurants, and diverse groups of people. Living in Pittsburgh, there are some neighborhoods that are similar to the Docklands, such as Bakery Square, and while I enjoy visiting those areas occasionally, I am happier staying in Squirrel Hill or Oakland.
