Hi there,

I am a South African expat who is currently living in the UK on an ancestral Visa.

I would like to take a few trips into the EU for the odd holiday. For this I need a multiple entry Shengen Visa... However I am not sure where to start?!

Hey all…my husband and I are travelling to Ireland this October… I have only been to Donegal (back in 1992) . We are flying in and out of Dublin.

Hello all - will be arriving (internationally - weekday) at Heathrow airport 6:35 am and will take Heathrow Express from the airport to Paddington then the Tube to St Pancras for the Eurostar to France. How much time should we allow to clear customs - take the Express and Tube to St Pancras? We will not have any checked luggage.
Thank you in advance for any advice.

Hello all!

I have come to the FAQs & feedback forum in order to get some help regarding my currency situation for my upcoming trip. I will be travelling through Iceland, England and Ireland for about a month.. and will be working in three different currencies (ISK, pounds, and euros).

Hi everyone,

I’m planning a honeymoon trip to Ireland next May and want to make sure of a couple things:

  1. I want to make sure that this trip is feasible timewise so that we won’t feel rushed.

I want to experience the culture and food (fine dining and pub scene), experience a little bit of luxury(spend a few nights in a nice hotel, then stay in less expensive places; I’ve read that B&B’s are an excellent way to experience Ireland), and have…

I will be visiting a grave in Sandymount Cemetery but I cannot find online the hours. Does anyone know how I can find this out, or can someone look this up for me? Or is the cemetery open 24 hours a day?

Thanks!
