About Irish Women Abroad

Irish Women Abroad was set up by Sarah Whelan in 2019 to help Irish Women navigate some of the challenges they face when living abroad or when deciding it’s time to return to Ireland.

Our new website covers events and genuine support and access to the best Irish businesses around the globe to help you overcome the challenges you may face living abroad or returning home to Ireland. 

Irish Women Abroad is an inclusive, warm and diverse community of Irish women talking about all things home.

We have one mission: providing connection, support and inspiration for Irish women talking about all things home.

We have over 6,000 in our Facebook Community and 4,800 followers on Instagram.


What is the Business Directory?

Get found by the Irish community in their home away from home!

A listing in the Directory gives your business its very own page on the Irish Women Abroad website, where you can outline your business services through words, photos, reviews, and include all the ways for readers to find out more or get in touch.

Irish Women Abroad is proud to promote brands and services that support the community. 

We pride ourselves on the highly engaged community and social media following we have across all platforms and we are excited to be in a position to help other brands and businesses to grow.

Once listed, your business can be recommended by our users, so the community have the added assurance of knowing that they are using a service or business that is tried and trusted!

Kind words

From Our Community

Irish Women abroad is a great initiative as it is so important for women to feel a sense of community and connectedness especially being so far away from home. Supporting Irish business as well as supporting Irish women in business will help keep the Irish culture and traditions to be passed into future generations.

IWA is a fabulous organisation that brings women together to share their ideas, their stories, their experiences, to provide a network of information and exchange of ideas. If you are considering advertising in the Directory, you should go for it.

I registered my business on the website it’s amazing. So much gold on it about Irish products too.  Sarah is so helpful when your setting up your business, I’d highly recommend it.

It was so great to be featured by Sarah in IWA and share my story with her audience. Sarah has built such a wonderful supportive community and the feedback I got on the feature was fabulous. So if you are thinking of joining the business directory I highly recommend it.

Reading all the different perspectives in the Facebook group helped me figure out my priorities this year and guided me to coming to peace with them and removing at least some of the guilt of choosing not to go home…

Sarah is such a huge support for the Irish community in Australia both as individuals in the Irish Women Abroad groups and for Irish run businesses through her new business directory. You’re doing incredible work Sarah and this Irish Woman Abroad certainly appreciates it.
