Moving from Ireland to Zurich

Hi Everyone,

Our family are moving from the west coast of Ireland to Zurich over the coming weeks. We have two kids 6yrs and 8yrs and are hoping to minimize the trauma of the change on them. I am really hoping to learn from fellow forum members and hear experiences to help our kids with the transition. We are all really excited about the adventure ahead.

Niall

Hi Monica!

Thanks for your message - hope you're enjoying Zurich - we're all very excited about the move. We're moving from Galway - although originally from Limerick. Will definitely drop you a line when we get settled.

Best regards,

Niall

Re: Moving from Ireland to Zurich

Hi Niall,


All the best for a smooth and not too stressful move to Zurich! We moved to a village close to Winterthur, not far from Zurich, from the UK two years ago and have never looked back. The quality of life is amazing here (when you get your head around the expense - you will probably have to adapt your food requirements a little)


I have two daughters aged 6 and 8 too so would love to meet up with you when you are settled. The forum is brilliant for any questions you have and I also write a blog about family life here - just google Swiss Odyssey in any search engine and you'll find me.


Take care and I hope to meet you sometime soon!


Best wishes,


Sarah

Hi Sarah,

Thanks a million for your message - it's great to hear that your experience has been so positive. We're all really excited (but secretly I am a little anxious that the little ones will adjust without too much difficulty). Would love to make contact after we find our feet. Thanks for the information on your blog, will definitely check it out.

All the best,

Niall

Hello Niall,

Fellow Connacht man here. Move to Zug (not too far from Zurich) just over a year ago.
