Ireland Travel Requirements




Travellers Essentials


Money Matters
The currency used in Ireland is Irish Pounds (also known as Punt).

The official cash is the Bank of England notes and coins. The coins are 1p, 2p, 5p,10p, 50p, 1, 2 and the notes are 5, 10, 20 and less usually 50 and 100. The Bank of England notes and coins have the Queen's image on them.

Most major currencies and brand of travelers cheques are readily accepted in Ireland. Credit cards are widely accepted except for Bed-and-Breafast establishments and smaller remote patrol stations, who will only take cash.

Tipping
Tipping in fancy hotels and restaurants is not required as an additional 10% or 20% service charge is added.

Other places usually do not add service charge; however if you decide to tip, just round up the bill or add at most 20%. Tipping in bars is not expected. Taxi drivers don't have to be tipped. but if you want to, 10% is fine.

Passport and Visas
For citizens of most Western countries, no visa is required. UK nationals both in Great Britain or Northern Ireland do not require a passport to visit the Republic.
