Ireland has become the global technologt hub of choice when it comes to attracting the strategic business activities of ICT companies. This has earned Ireland the reputation for being the heart of ICT in Europe. The industry employs over 37,000 people and generates €35 billion in exports annually.

Why Ireland for ICT

ICT Talent

High quality technical talent is readily available throughout Ireland. The high quality of life available in Ireland, coupled with a thriving ICT sector also attracts talent from around the world. This has been a key factor in the success of multinational companies. 

Exceptional Education

The Irish Government recently published the 2014 National ICT Skills Strategy and Plan. Developed in partnership with key industry players, this and other initiatives have led to large increases in the supply of computing, software and electronic engineering graduate talent from third-level institutions.

Tech Start-Up Scene

Ireland has a rich ecosystem of high calibre, innovative indigenous companies, particularly in the software space, which have a growing global representation.

Multilingual Resources

Companies seeking to access European and EMEA markets will find Ireland offers an array of competent multilingual ICT talent.

Track Record

Global ICT companies such as Microsoft, Intel and Google have a long history of success in Ireland and contribute to and draw on a large pool of available ICT talent.


Publicly funded Irish research and development centres support the R&D activities of many corporate research projects. This public research complements private sector research, which continues to be financially supported through Ireland's 25% R&D tax credit and generous grant support from the IDA.
