Skilled Worker visas for New Zealand are relatively straightforward to get up to the age of 55.
It's not cheap here though so a good job lined up in advance is essential, property prices are bubblicious with Auckland prices just plain nuts, and for some reason everyone thinks it's a tropical paradise but the weather is actually more France than Fiji. Still an decent improvement on Irish weather though
On the plus side the amenties and activities are excellent, always Stuff to do. Wellington at least has a decent cultural scene and is very cosmopolitan, and I personally like Kiwis a lot. Honest, straight, friendly positive people as a rule, and stuff generally works here with a minimum of fuss. I love it here, but some ex-pats really dislike the place and leave after 6 months *shrugs*
