Just got the job offer and waiting on work permit for Dublin, Northside, Blanchardstown Corporate Park. How long are work permits (special skills) taking? I've been told Protected content . And, is it realistic to plan to be able to find an apartment within 2 weeks of arrival? Has to be biking/on busline as I do not intend to get a car. I am thinking of a sublet/short-term stay or even a hotel/hostel while I look but don't know how far in advance I need to be in country to find suitable place. Studio/1BR to 2BR max, just me, no pets. Thanks.
