    FAQ
    Ireland & UK - Frequently Asked Questions

    Passports & Visas

    To enter Ireland or UK, you need a valid passport. While e-passports are commonly used now, they are not a necessity to enter Ireland. UK citizens do not require a passport to enter Ireland, but carriers by air or sea require some form of identification with a photograph (usually either a passport or driving license with photo).

    Weather

    February to April: Highest temperatures range from 46 to 54°F
    May to July: Highest temperatures are between 64 and 68°F
    August to October: Highest temperatures hit between 64 and 57°F.
    Winter air temperatures inland normally reach 46°F, while the coldest months are January and February.
    April & September are considered the most pleasant and temperate months.

    Gratuities

    Gratuities and tips are discretionary and are not usually included in a bill. The general custom is to give 10% to serving staff in restaurants. Cafes might have a collection box at the till and bar staff are not tipped but you are free to offer “have one for yourself”.

    Gadgets

    Plugs in Ireland and UK are three-pronged and the electricity supply is also 230v. Adapters are widely available, and it’s a good idea to bring a couple for your various gadgets.

    Driving

    You will need either a full valid national driving license or an international driving permit. Cars in Ireland drive on the left-hand side of the road and both driver and passengers are required to wear seat belts at all times by law. Signposts in Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) areas are written in Irish (Gaelic) so familiarise yourself with both English and Irish spellings before you set off for those parts. Northern Ireland uses miles per hour, while the Republic of Ireland uses kilometers for signage and speed limits.

    Language

    English is commonly used throughout Ireland and UK, although Irish is the official language in Ireland, and there are Irish speaking areas called the Gaeltacht where it is the predominant language.

    What to Pack

    Bring a sweater, even in summer; waterproofs to accompany all outdoor activities; sunglasses; comfortable walking shoes and an umbrella. The weather is changeable so go for layers that you can put on or take off as the temperature changes.

    Currency

    In the Republic of Ireland, the official currency is the euro (€). One euro consists of 100 cent. In Northern Ireland, pound sterling is the local currency (£). One pound sterling consists of 100 pence.

    Emergency Services

    Police, Fire, Ambulance:
    Republic of Ireland, Telephone: 112 or 999
    Northern Ireland, Telephone: 999

    Time Zone

    Ireland functions on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). During the summer it becomes GMT+1, that’s Irish Standard Time (IST) in the Republic and British Summer Time (BST) in Northern Ireland.
    For example, New York is Irish Time -5 hours & Los Angeles is Irish Time -8 hours.

    Vaccinations

    There are no vaccinations required to visit Ireland.
