Most people probably won't be surprised to learn that Ireland is one of the most expensive countries in the world to live in.

Movehub, a website which helps people who are moving abroad, has put together a list of the most expensive countries in the world to live in, taking into account the cost of groceries, transport, restaurants, utilities and rent using data from the Consumer Price Index.

Here are the top 15 most expensive countries:

  1. Bermuda
  2. Switzerland
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Iceland
  5. Singapore
  6. Norway 
  7. Bahamas
  8. United Arab Emirates
  9. Qatar
  10. Luxembourg
  11. US Virgin Islands
  12. Australia
  13. Denmark
  14. Ireland
  15. USA

Our high ranking is probably not that shocking given we also have the 7th most expensive food in the world.

But, unfortunately, we can't escape our problems by moving to Aus.
