QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • What is the currency in Ireland? Do they accept American dollars?

    The euro is the official currency used in the Republic of Ireland. However, Northern Ireland uses the pound sterling, because it is a part of the United Kingdom. Ireland does not accept American dollars, so make sure to exchange your money for euros before leaving for Ireland. Converting US dollars to euros at the exchange counters in Ireland airports is not a good idea as they are known for charging hefty fees. 


  • Is Ireland safe to travel to?

    The Global Peace Index ranks Ireland as one of the safest countries in the world. That said, petty crime can happen and due to their high tourist traffic, Galway, Cork, and Dublin are prime targets for pickpocketing and bag theft. Always exercise caution while taking public transportation or touring city landmarks.

  • When is the best time to visit Ireland?

    The ideal months to visit Ireland are March to May and September to November, when it is less hot and congested compared to summer. Despite occasional rain, Ireland usually has pleasant temperatures, making it possible to travel there all year round.

  • What to pack for trip to Ireland?
