What to bring


A visit to Ireland is not complete without at least one windy day so be sure to bring along some warm clothes. We have had a few hot days but we have to be honest and admit that weather here is less than reliable and somewhat unpredictable so you should always hope for the best and pack for the worst! Always keep a waterproof jacket and small umbrella along with your sun cream in your day pack, even if you’re travelling at the height of summer!


If you’re doing a lot of travelling, you might want to think about some gadgets, MP3’s, and books to keep you busy on route. Although the country isn’t huge you may find there is a limit to the number of green fields you can watch in a day!

Bringing an old cell (mobile) phone with you is always advisable to put a SIM card into if you’re likely to want to call home. We provide a free SIM card with excellent international rates in our pack so you may want a phone to put this into.

Ireland and the UK are in general safe countries. However, it’s never advisable to carry large amounts of cash with you and like any country you need to be a little careful – especially in large busy cities. We also recommend keeping passports and emergency credit cards in the hotel safe.

It’s easy to forget but the UK and Ireland use 3 pin plugs so you will probably need an adaptor. This is different to the European adaptor and though you can buy them here, they are easily forgotten and probably cheaper to bring with you.
