Today, Ireland is home to many of the world’s leading technology, pharma and social media companies, with the last decade seeing a number of global HQs establishing roots here.

Ireland’s reputation as HQ friendly is well-earned — as a geographical bridge between the continents of North American and Europe, we’re ideally placed for U.S companies seeking European headquarters.
With a competitive rate of 12.5% corporate tax (compared to London’s 20%, Berlin’s 30% and Paris’ 33.3%), Ireland not only plays host to large tech giants but is also a hub for start-ups, many of which are supported for growth by Enterprise Ireland.
A dynamic pool of talent
As one of the youngest populations in the EU with
access to affordable third-level education, Ireland’s population keeps the nation well-supplied with a skilled and dynamic pool of talent. This pool of potential for employers is accompanied by access to the free movement of talent in the European Single Market.
