Abstract: The article compares the quality of life of families in Ireland and in Poland in 2004-2013. The quality of life of families is affected by many factors, including available family-oriented benefits. These benefits are listed separately for Poland and Ireland to show that family oriented financial policy in Ireland is more favourable than in Poland. Spectrum of offered services is in Ireland wider, amounts are higher, and durations are longer than in Poland. When it comes to the quality of life a comparison of the indicators was performed. These were selected value to address several aspects related to the family life: the level of migration, fertility, the number of marriages and divorces. These indicators look better for Ireland than for the Poland. However, this does not allow for clear identification of the causal relationship, because it is impossible to disentangle an impact of the level of GDP which is higher in Ireland than in Poland.
