Financially you'll be better off in Zurich, you'll certainly be able to save more.
Dublin is not cheap either as it's also a capital city, I don't think you'll notice too much of a difference apart from the rent, and you can reduce that by having a longer commute or sharing.

As for quality of life 'exploding', I doubt that for a single guy. Sure there are mountains and lakes for the outdoor type, but the social scene and choices available in Dublin blow Zurich out of the water.

Personally I'd take the job, the worst case scenario is you don't like it and decide to move back. Dublin has plenty of employment opportunities, and you'll have some international experience on the CV.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Just my tuppence worth.
Thanks Fish Paste. I heard the social scene is a lot different in Zurich. I have some friends already in Zurich so hopefully this will help.

I agree, I am thinking that if worst comes to worst I can save for 2-3 years and return to Ireland with a decent nest egg (and hopefully my German will have improved)
