Irish family looking to move to Abu Dhabi


Hi all,

I am looking for some help and advice.

Have been made a job offer to move to Abu Dhabi to work in construction.

I am married with a 5mth old son, so really have to think about moving family out with me eventually should I seriously consider this.

Questions :-

a) what is the standard of living like

b) cost of renting house / apt

c) my wife is a nurse by profession but teaches nursing in ireland, is there work opportunities for her?

d) what are creche facilities like for our 5mth son?

e) have similar couples found the move ok

f) social scene is there a good irish / other expat community

Any feedback would be much appreciated
