We advise not bringing too much cash to Ireland.
Around €250 Euro is more than enough to get you through your first days in Dublin.
On tour, you can withdraw cash from cash machines/ATMs as you need it. 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.
Remember that you'll need British pound sterling (£) in cash if your tour is visiting Northern Ireland:
These tours go to Northern Ireland and require British pound sterling (£):
💷 12 Day Vagabond Giant Irish Adventure
💷 11 Day Driftwood Discover Ireland Tour
💷 7 Day Vagabond Magnetic North Tour
💷 6 Day Driftwood Northern Island Tour
It's also important to let your bank know you are traveling before you leave. If you don't, some payments could be blocked.
If you're travelling with dollars, you can exchange them for Euro (€) or Pounds (£) at Dublin Airport or any Irish post office.
Please note that American Express (AMEX) and Discover are not widely accepted in Ireland. Our advice is stick to Visa or Mastercard, if possible.
