Hey making the big move to Calgary in the next few weeks from Ireland. Just wondering how ye rate this city overall?. I plan on making this a long term stay or at least where i can be based out of .I will be moving from a small town of 2000 people so to me Calgary will be huge. How is the nightlife i hear it can vary, some people say its great others not so much? where are the spots to go to? also where should one base themselves to live?I am 23 and heading to Calgary solo. which hostel is better to stay at and meet new people? I have been looking into these areas to live in Bankview, Killarney, any other areas? many Irish in the city? any other advice you could give me would be great
Thanks to all in advance.

Nightlife really depends on the people you hang out with and what you like to do. It's not Toronto or Montreal, when you compare nightlife. There are some good pubs on 17th ave, stephen ave and really all around the city. The pub culture here is pretty good, so maybe you will like it. The problem with Calgary is meeting people. But, maybe there's a good irish community here, I'm not sure.

I would suggest Mission as a place to consider living, given your age and the proximity to nightlife/young people.
