Dublin is one of the worst cities in the world for emigrants, according to a recent survey. 

A poll by website InterNations found that the Irish capital was the fifth worst place on earth for people to move to. 

Only Riyadh and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, Paris and Lagos in Nigeria ranked lower than us. 

The survey of over 13,000 people docked marks from Dublin for its lack of affordable housing and high cost of living. 

Thankfully we did a bit better when it came to friendliness and career opportunities. 

Manama, the capital of Bahrain, was the top-rated city for emigrants, followed by Prague, Madrid, Kuala Lumpur and Amsterdam.
