Moving To Ireland
Ireland and Australia have always held a special relationship with so many Irish calling Australia home and vice versa with many Australian’s coming from an Irish background due to the large volume of Irish who immigrated to Australia. As a matter of fact, in the late 19th century a third of the population in Australia was Irish.
Palmers Relocations has been moving families and individuals to Ireland for more than 20 years. The two main ports in Ireland are Dublin and Cork. If you’re moving to Ireland, there is no one better to take you there than Palmers Relocations.
What Service Do I Need? Part Load Or Full Load?
This really depends on your situation. At Palmers, we can relocate any size shipment from a single box of clothing up to a full shipping container of household goods and effects to Ireland. We regularly ship to both Cork & Dublin for convenience.
It is always best to organise an in-home consultation when moving more than a garage / granny-flat worth of goods so we can assess the most cost effective method of transporting your goods.
