God, I just love how fair, straightforward, trusting and reasonable people are here in Northern Ireland!! I have yet to meet a local asshole -- except for the underaged bike thieves -- but instead plenty of guys easy to get along with and excellent landlords and down-to-earth customer service. Awesome functioning society.
Hmm, aren't there any kickbacks? Not that I can think of, besides you cannot open bank account at all as a foreigner, unless your company does it for you at Bank of Ireland and still you can't get a card that allows you to pay online for the first 6 months.
