Jessica: Tips for travel to Ireland

May 21, 2011

For anyone thinking about traveling to Ireland… Here arer a few tips as I remember them. 

  • yes you actually need a raincoat with a hood. Because you get sick of umbrellas and my cheap one has started leaking
  • pack snacks from home
  • live in leggings. They’re easier to handle wet than jeans
  • book your travel weekends earlier than a week ahead of time…
  • sunglasses.
  • get a crossover bag—waterproof if possible
  • bring a watch and water bottle
  • Starbucks gift cards work here. I’m not sure how.
  • only a few straighteners or hair dryers from home ever work here
  • while withdrawing money, make it count if you’re withdrawing from the ATM because they’ll charge you like five dollars every time (or four pounds converting cash)
  • I have yet to see locals wearing rain boots.
