Tips for Traveling to Ireland

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.

Starting your Business in Ireland

01 Pick a Community to be part of
    • When hunting for a new location to start a business. Find a community you want to be part of. There is an endless number of small rural communities crying out for new boutique and bespoke offerings. The only true obstacle you will face is picking your favourite.

Walked this cliff path last year with my sister. Absolutely fabulous walk for the fit but at 73 it nearly killed me. Will do it again next time I'm home 🤣🤣🤣

Good grief! There is so much I want to do on my next visit I may have to apply for permanent residency. 😂

That´s so amazing and absolutely fantastic! Beeing so close to the pure irish nature must be amazing. One point on my bucket list 😁💚☘

Did this last week with my hubby and son . Really good ...so glad we did it ! 😁

This area is full of surprises! Amazing! 🙌

So beautiful! My dads family live there ☘️

It's not for the faint hearted but it's beautiful.

Come on in and sit by the fire while I put the kettle on.

Coffee Time is the name of the cafe and shop we have in the cottages. Looking forward to welcoming you all 🤗

Yes they're real...we pass them up and down to Letterkenny...fruit and veg van and a chipper/food takeaway parked just outside! A testament to how we used to live.

No way! I wouldn't live in a cottage because this cottage is too small for electrical items fit in.

Love red doors and the red gate sends it to an ghealach!

These huts will be the most beautiful in winter

my dream little place with a cottage for all my family members! 🙂

What spectacular cottages!!

My old Home town! ❤️❤️❤️

Put my name on one of them! 🤣 ❤️🇨🇦

Love the red doors.

Thanks so very much for sharing really nice

This is not correct. The best place to live in Ireland is New Ross.

Waterford is a beautiful town, so is New Ross, so is Cobh and etc. Ireland is a beautiful place, no matter where you are, there is beauty.👏🏻👍🏻💕 Velma

so agree,it has so so much to offer

How can I move there?

Best place very quiet and peaceful beautiful murals on walls (shankill road) belfast.

Sean Farrell ur in God's county.

Lovely

Normally I don't praise people for any reason, truth be told good works deserves appreciation. I won't deny the fact that's I'm super jealous of her hard work and skill. I'm so Happy for what Elena Aubrey has done in my life and many others. I can't believe I made $15k in one week trading from home under her supervision. Success is a personal decision not a wish

WeiXing Lee , u think so ?

A great little town

How nice is this photo ?

Located in the centre of its namesake, The Temple Bar has all the calling cards of an old Irish pub and has been playing host to Irish tourists for over 160 years. ✨

"How beautiful, spacious is the tree there, The branches of fairies were tied together, Its trunk is also covered by foliage, Like the thick veil of the convent's virgin "

So amazing and Magic👍☘️

Climbed up to the bell tower in 2012 and rang the bell. The gentleman who guided the tour knew about the bells in Perth Western Australia , where I come from. I can't wait to return

It is amazing and so are the guides. It is so much more meaningful with them giving the history and tidbits of info.

We saw some of these beautiful churches when visiting Dublin a few years ago. We had a wonderful time and would love to return there some day.

Looks like the great hall in Harry Potter

This was such an incredible place to visit.

I am ashamed to say I have never been inside. Well, I’m going hext week, so I shall remedy that.

I enjoyed my visit there, absolutely beautiful!!

I agree. So beautiful and ornate. Loved it.

Must visit on my next trip looks amazing

Amazing architecture !

On my list to visit here in december

Been there! It is gorgeous inside!

Stunning. We have seen this twice in our travels.

This place is completely and utterly amazing

Ben daar in geweest 😀👍
