My best travel tips
Local costum
Ireland doesn’t have the same culture of tipping that some countries do, but there are certain services that people do tend to tip for. In restaurants with table service, it’s normal to tip between 10 to 12 per cent, or more if you wish. Restaurants occasionally add a service charge to the bill themselves, especially for larger groupings, so check this first. Taxi drivers and hairdressers or other personal service providers are usually tipped up to 10 per cent if they have provided good service, but this is at your discretion.
The Irish have an international reputation for extending céad míle fáilte or ‘a hundred thousand welcomes’, but Irish friendliness can sometimes be more understated than visitors might expect. Compared to American customer service – whereby people are immediately greeted as soon as they enter a shop or restaurant – Irish service providers might seem positively reserved. In general, people in Ireland are friendly when spoken to and love to talk once they get going, but they aren’t always as outgoing as they are made out to be.
When in the company of a group of friends at a pub, a system of “rounds” is used. Each person will offer to buy a round for everyone in their group and take turns. Those who do not make an offer to buy a round might be considered rude.
Packing list
Everyone knows the weather in Ireland simply is not reliable. Its temperate oceanic climate means the country gets buckets of rainfall, especially on the western coast, but also that the outlook can change in the blink of an eye. It doesn’t have much in the way of extremes, so the best way to be prepared for the Irish weather is to bring a lot of light layers, wear waterproof shoes, and hope for the best.
Safety and security
Ireland is a very safe country to visit. Compared to other European countries, crime is relatively low and the crime that does happen is mostly fueled by alcohol, so you should avoid roaming along Ireland's streets late at night.

Transportation
While most of the major Irish sights can be taken in using public transport or tour buses, renting a car is worth considering, to get to those spectacular places off the beaten track. If you are going to rent one, remember that people in Ireland drive on the left hand side of the road and pass on the right – the opposite of US drivers. It’s best to rent a small car for visiting rural areas – country roads in Ireland are notoriously narrow and winding, and some locals drive along them more quickly than you might expect.

If you decide to use public transport to explore Ireland, trains are a tempting option – they’re more comfortable than the bus, with free wifi, electrical outlets and bathrooms onboard. The downside is that trains in Ireland can be extremely expensive. Happily, www.omio.com offer significant online booking discounts if you buy tickets in advance.
Dublin city buses won’t stop unless you flag them down, even at a designated stop, if that stop also serves other routes. Make sure to stick your arm out when you see your bus approaching to let the driver know you want to board. Also, on Irish buses in general it’s common to thank the bus driver when you depart.
Weather
Anyone planning to travel to Ireland during the winter ought to know that winter days in Ireland are incredibly short. It’s not exactly Alaska, but during December in Ireland the sun rises around 8am and sets around 4pm, meaning that ideal outdoor exploring hours are significantly curtailed. The good news is that the reverse is true in summer, when the sun doesn’t set until 10pm during certain months.
