I am looking at a job in Ballina and was wondering whether any of you could give me some insight as to whether you think it would be wise to get an apartment/house in Ballina or go somewhere like Westport where there's a bit more happening.
I'm 25 and don't know anyone from either areas. It says the drive is about 50 minutes on Google maps but wondering if you know if there's any common headaches on that journey that could make it longer.. or just your opinions in general on if you'd stay in Ballina/go to Westport.
I visited Ballina town. It was grand, seemed clean enough but there didn't seem like there was much going on.
Thanks in advance. Any advice or suggestions is really helpful.
