Keep a lookout for the corporate honchos

Even though Ireland was largely bypassed by the Industrial Revolution of the nineteenth century, it saw a dramatic economic reversal in the 1990s. Nicknamed the ‘Celtic Tiger’, the Irish economy experienced massive surge in the period 1995-2007. Part of this was driven by relatively low corporate tax which encouraged globally recognized companies like Dell, Intel and Microsoft to set base in Ireland. The consequence was a surge in the reputation and income level of professionals in the higher levels of management. Chief executive officers and managers thus continue to be among the best-paid professionals in Ireland. According to an independent survey, the CEO’s job may touch 150,000 Euros a year, depending on the size of the company and its location. The best executive jobs tend to be in marketing followed by sales, finance and technical departments. In terms of departments, the best paid managers are those in production and manufacturing, followed by those in Information Technology, administration and marketing or sales, finance and accounting, and finally HR. So the next time you are invited to a corporate function, you know which are the appointments you should be particularly nice to.

So if you are partial towards a life of glamour and razzmatazz, the entertainers may be just the right people to socialize with. Music, dance, film production and theater may all have their fair share of wealthy singles.

Sporting heroes

Apart from traditional Irish music and whiskey, sports figures as the other most popular pastime among the Irish people and the rich ones are no different.

Stadiums like the Croke Park, the Landsdowne Road Stadium and the Aviva Stadium in Dublin as well as the Odyssey Arena and the Stormont in Belfast are most high-profile sporting venues where you can come across a wealthy fan.

Upscale hangouts

Traditionally the Irish enjoy their social lives. And even though the wealthy singles may be cooped up in their workplaces for most of the day, few of them are likely to be complete workaholics and would rather chill out at the end of the day with a bottle of Guinness.  So if you know which bars and hangouts to frequent, you stand a good chance of coming across a rich guest. The Cassidy’s in Dublin is located in the heart of the city and is a hit with the city young and beautiful crowd as much for its exotic cocktails as for its traditional spirits. The Taphouse and the Nick’s Warehouse are some places in Belfast where the rich and beautiful like to be seen. On the other hand the Bulman in Kinsale, County Cork or the O’Connell’s in Skrynne Hill, County Meath might appear to attract the more discriminating guests despite their remote locations.
