Travel to Ireland (the easy way)

Pack a travel-sized umbrella

Don’t let the weather get in your way: prepare for Ireland’s rainy days by packing a rain jacket and an umbrella (rain boots, too, if there’s room in your suitcase!) so that nothing will stop your exploring.

Wear plenty of layers

Ireland can get chilly, whether it’s from the rain or the damp (but seriously impressive) medieval castles. Stay warm and comfortable by packing easy-to-layer clothing and sweaters.

Tipping isn’t mandatory

Like most of Europe, tipping in Ireland is not necessary—it’s essentially already included in a waiter’s wages. If the service is exceptional and you would like to give a tip, 10% is a nice gesture.

Ask a local for advice

The Irish are known for their friendly, outgoing personalities. Don’t hesitate to strike up a conversation while you’re in a local pub or ask someone for recommendations on what to do during your trip. They’ll be more than happy to tell you their favorite things to see!

Can’t-miss list for your Ireland vacation

There are a few things everyone must do when traveling to Ireland—here’s our list.

Kiss the Blarney Stone

A block of limestone tucked into Blarney Castle outside of Cork, legend has it whoever kisses the stone will be granted with the gift of gab.

Explore the Dingle Peninsula

Just outside Killarney lies this incredibly scenic spot, which has something to suit every traveler. Whether it’s exploring the archaeological ruins on foot, relaxing on sandy beaches or chatting up the locals in the fishing port of Dingle, this is one of Ireland’s best-kept secrets.

Eat at a local pub

Some of the best food will be found at a local Irish pub, and many will feature live music and step dancers. Order a Guinness and fish and chips, but if you’re in Cork, order a Murphy’s Irish Stout—that’s what the region is famous for.
