If you need to bring along your service dog, you must notify us before you book your tour.

Please note that we may not be able to accommodate your request due to hotel restrictions and the consideration of other passengers.

Jeans and sneakers are totally acceptable in 99.9% of the bars, pubs, hotels and restaurants that you frequent on our tours.

Border

Unless you're travelling from the UK, you will need an adapter to use your electric appliances in Ireland.

We use a three pin plug in Ireland, with square pins.

You can buy electrical converters/adapters in most airports, and all over Dublin city centre. For example, you'll find US to Ireland plug adapters on sale at Boots, a pharmacy chain.

The voltage in Ireland is 240v. Check that your appliances work on a 240v system. This should be stated either on the device or in its manual.

Currency / Credit Cards / Cash

Border

We advise not bringing too much cash to Ireland.

You'll find ATMs in most towns and gas/service stations on tour. Just ask your VagaGuide tour guide for advice on when and where is best to withdraw cash.

Euro is the main currency you'll need. If your tour visits Northern Ireland, you'll also need Pound sterling (£).
