Why you should consider working as GP in Ireland

Ireland is one of the most prosperous countries in the EU, with a high standard of living, well-developed health care and plenty of job opportunities for doctors. Let's take a look at the reasons why you should consider working as a GP in Ireland.

Better salary

Working as a locum GP is well paid work in Ireland in comparison to the rest of the EU countries. GP's can make an average of €2,500 per week plus another €60-€70 an hour for ‘out of hours’ shifts.

Better working conditions

In some countries doctors have only 5 to 7 minutes to diagnose a patient, in Ireland you will have up to 15 minutes to diagnose a patient. You will also have good working conditions and the support and respect from people.

Many job opportunities

You will not be out of work as there is a great demand for doctors in Ireland all over the country, specially locum GP doctors. This means that you can find a job in almost any area you may wish in Ireland.


As a locum GP you are your own boss which allows you to have more control over where and when you will work. You can adapt your work to your lifestyle and thus have a better work-life balance.

Make the difference

You will have the opportunity to treat several people and improve their health. You would be able to apply your expertise and still improve your skills as a physician in a different country.


Many doctors work in their countries and, at the same time, travel a few days to other countries, obtaining a monthly income far superior to the one that would get only in their country. Regardless of whether you travel between countries, or live in Ireland, you will have the best of both worlds and many more benefits.


You will meet lots of new people interacting with the general public and making new friends outside of your traditional circle of friends. You will also meet more profession colleagues and increase your network of contacts.
