Doing Business in Ireland Guide – 2021 edition

Investing in Ireland


Introducing our 2021 edition of Doing Business in Ireland, our guide for all those interested investing in Ireland.

Ireland continues to attract a significant level of foreign investment and has experienced strong and consistent growth in a number of key sectors such as:

  • Life sciences
  • Information and communications technologies
  • Consumer and industrial products
  • Financial services

Ireland offers a combination of a highly educated, skilled and flexible workforce, an advanced infrastructure and a pro-business environment. Furthermore, it has a transparent, common law based legal system and its membership of the EU ensures unrestricted access to EU markets for companies based in Ireland. 

Ireland’s prosperity is a product of its success as a trading nation. The IMD World Competitiveness Centre consistently rank Ireland as one of the most competitive economies in the world, recently ranking it fifth for business efficiency. 

Ireland and its capital continues to invest in its communication infrastructure and Tholons 2020 Services Globalization Index ranked Dublin fifth in the world for digital innovation and transformation.

Ireland has the youngest and most educated workforce in Europe and the UN 2019 Human Development Index placed Ireland third for its quality of life. 

Ireland remains one of the most welcoming places in the world for international business and it is a great place to invest, do business, work, and live.

These are some of the reasons why Ireland has been able to attract many of the leading global organisations. The OECD recognises Ireland as the top destination for foreign direct investment.
