Tips for #visiting Ireland from abroad

01 What travel restrictions are in place at the moment?
    • If you arrive into Ireland from another country, including if you are travelling onwards to Northern Ireland, you must fill in an online COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form before you arrive. One form should be completed for each passenger aged 18 or older. You will get an email receipt, which you will have to show when boarding. It is a pre-boarding requirement. Find Out more here.
02 Do in need a visa while visiting Ireland?
03 What currency can i use in Ireland?
    • Currency: The island of Ireland has two different currencies. If travelling across the border, you should be aware that Northern Ireland uses pound sterling. The Republic of Ireland uses Euro. International bank cards will work perfectly in ATMs and chip and pin terminals on both sides.
04 How do I get around when I arrive?
    • Renting A Car is a great way to get around, Some spectacular places in Ireland are off the beaten track. If you are going to rent one, remember that people in Ireland drive on the left-hand side of the road and pass on the right. Country roads in Ireland are notoriously narrow and winding, making it an exhilarant experience in itself.

 

    • Bus Éireann as well as other local bus services can get you to most major Irish sights. They Dublin City buses won’t stop unless you flag them down, even at a designated stop, Also, on Irish buses in general it’s common to thank the bus driver when you depart.

 

    • Trains in Ireland can be more expensive than other countries. Irish Rail do offer significant online booking discounts if you buy tickets in advance.

     

05 Should I leave a Tip?
    • Leaving Tips, Ireland doesn’t have the same culture of tipping that some countries do, but there are certain services that people do tend to tip for. In restaurants with table service, it’s normal to tip between 10 to 12 per cent, or more if you wish. Restaurants occasionally add a service charge to the bill themselves, especially for larger groupings, so check this first. Taxi drivers and hairdressers or other personal service providers are usually tipped up to 10 per cent if they have provided good service, but this is at your discretion.

One of my fondest memories from our 2019 tour of Ireland. So beautiful.

One of the most beautiful places in Ireland. Serenity at its best. 💚

An absolutely beautiful place to visit. While we we there a high school choir from Texas performed in the chapel on the grounds.

I agree. I was absolutely amazed at the beautiful architecture walking around there. Just didnt want to leave. Hopefully will get another chance to visit ☘☘👍😊

This was the photo I took of the Abbey while I was there. My favorite photo.

On my itinerary for September. Can’t wait to go back to Ireland - four years away is too long!!

Absolutely beautiful and a wonderful place to visit!

Been here and it was beautiful. Love Ireland

We toured it, but I don’t think they told us that. I loved it, beautiful!

That was history in the making.

The gardens around the Abby are also beautiful to see.

This place is just beautiful! ☘️.

Been there a most peaceful place

This was my favorite stop when I visited Ireland.

This picture is in my dining room. I took it on one of my trips.

The genuinely old Long Hall pub is one of the oldest pubs in Dublin city and looks the same today as it did 60 years ago (1962).

- Irish rock legend Phil Lynott used the pub in the hit-song ‘Old Town’ in 1982 🤟

One of the best pubs in Dublin. Used to go there regularly back in the 80s. Great place. ❤️

Been there last trip, recommended by an Irish guy. Glad we did, like the old style! By the way the man in back on right could be my Dad!!! I sat at the table along the wall right behind him!!!🤔🍀💚🥰

Been in a lot when in Dublin LOVE IT 🍻👍

Been there great pub ☘️👍👍

Best pub in Ireland 👏

We enjoyed some Guinness there!

Every pub in the ole sod is great

I enjoyed a pint or ten there….

Just having a wee drop of Guinness as I read this.

My uncle loved this place !

It was like stepping back in time memories

My late father drank there

Ce interior superb ! Si cata nostalgie emana ! Frumos !

Dat is een van de dingen, die ik zo geweldig vind aan Ierland. Een pubeigenaar vertelde ons eens: We verwijderen niets uit de pub. We voegen alleen toe.👍🏻👍🏼💖☘️🇮🇪

Me encantaría estar ahí ☘️❤️

Great looking bar!

Sophie

🌷🌷🌷🌷🇩🇰

I’d like to start my day with a real Guinness …

Have you seen a more colourful ring of houses defending a fortress ✨ The coastal village of Howth with its awesome Martello Tower(c 1805) on the site of the first St Lawrence fortress c 1177 😲

Thanks for sharing guys! 💚

I went to Howth many times and couldn't get enough of this place! Absolutely beautiful!

One of our favorite places to go when we go back home, we always have fish and chips by the Harbour, sooooo looking forward to it 😊

When I think of the beautiful fishing town of Howth, I think of Barney McKenna, the amazing tenor banjo player from the Dubliners. I hope to visit Howth again before I die

Love Howth so much a beautiful place.

That's where Donal Skehan, the nice TV chef comes from. You see a lot of videos of him walking along the coast with his lovely family &dog on his website & FB page

A an absolutely beautiful Village, and the train ride was fabulous from Dublin.👏🏻👍🏻💕 Velma

Well, now it looks like there's two placed you could slide or sled from the house above to the village below, of course you would have to be a brave soul and total ijit and have good friends or at least folks willing to call the medics when you did this, but my what fun it would be... at the least the first time ... if you survived.

I stayed at Howth some years ago - lovely place! Had fish pie, at a pub, by the harbor, with entertainment provided by the seals!

We were there two years ago. Lovely place and great fish & chips

Love Howth for its walks, pubs and restaurants! A great place!

Is it the same place?

One of my favorite places to go when I lived there 🥰🍀

Have happy memories going to Howth when I was growing up !Alway packed on a Sunday !Saints was the place to go for a bop!Great times

My maternal grandfathers birth place! Love Howth!

Beautiful town. We had the best fish soup in a lovely restaurant right on the harbor.

Adore Howth - no better place on a warm sunny day

My John, lived there in Ireland. Lovely place!

Wauw/ Would love to see this for real. Fantastic.

Love the colourful homes and the castle overlooking the ocean and homes

My parents were there.💚🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪🇮🇪

Such and amazing view.

Those houses remind me f my stay at 2 Island view, my cousins home, prior to the redevelopment.

Wow - it is breathtaking

I was there too. Stunning!
