There are many reasons people choose to return to Ireland, and each journey has its own challenges. You may have family you want to be closer to, or perhaps you've decided that you would like your children to attend the same school that your father went to. Some people just can't stay away from our weather!

Returning to Ireland

With the number of people returning from abroad increasing, there are a range of helpful services available to Irish diaspora as they make their way back home. In some cases, it can be a lonely and difficult transition so expert advice and access to a supportive network can make all the difference.

CrossCare Migrant Services

Crosscare Migrant Project is a Dublin-based NGO providing information and advocacy support to Irish emigrants and people who have moved to Ireland. It doesn't matter if you've been living abroad for years or for a short time, they can help you plan your move


Safe Home Ireland

Safe Home Ireland assists older qualifying Irish born emigrants to explore the option of returning to their place of origin in Ireland. They also provide a free, confidential information and advice service to anyone who may be considering returning or moving to Ireland, regardless of their age or circumstance.


Ireland Reaching Out, Crosscare and Safe Home Ireland are part of a network of 170 organisations funded by the Emigrant Support Programme. Through the ESP, the Irish Government provides financial support to organisations engaged in the delivery of front line advisory services and community care to Irish diaspora. In addition, the ESP also facilitates investment in a range of cultural, community and heritage projects, which foster a vibrant sense of Irish community and identity.
