World MasterCard to decline CDW in Ireland

Hello,
I've been looking everywhere here for RECENT info on using a World MasterCard to decline car rental insurance in Ireland. I don't currently have a World MasterCard and would need to apply for one. Apparently not ALL World MasterCards offer this benefit. So I don't know which card to apply for.

All the info I see on this and other forums is 6 to 8 years old, and everyone recommends Bank of America World MasterCard or Capital One. Neither one of those cards is offered anymore. (I have been…

Rent a car using diesel or petrol?

We are planning to rent a car for 12 days for a family holiday in Ireland. We are trying to determine whether to rent a vehicle using diesel fuel or not. Is diesel fuel widely available in Ireland? Everywhere? Do most places have both fuels? Does diesel fuel represent a savings at the pump or is it more expensive? Help!

American Visa to Ireland - How long before I can vacation there again?

I recently spent 3 months in Ireland on the 90 day tourist visa allowed to American citizens. I am now vacationing in the Schengen countries with family. I was wondering if there is a limited number of days I need to be out of Ireland before I can vacation there again. I know for Schengen I can only be here 90 out of 180 days (so 3 months here, 3 months out). Is this the same for Ireland? I can't find any information online and when I asked this specific question to the US Embassy in Dublin they…

Visa Question

Hey Everyone,

I am a US citizen (28/M) planning a backpacking trip beginning in the middle of July. I have secured a WWoofing gig in Ireland on Lambay Island from middle of July until Middle of August. My impression is that because Ireland is not part of the Schengen zone, that I will still be able to travel 3 months within the Schengen zone after my wwoofing gig is up. Is this accurate? Theoretically, I would do 1 month in Ireland and then backpack 3 months within the Schengen zone since, per…

Has anyone travelled Aer Lingus recently?

We generally travel with small carry-on bags and a day pack. The carry-on's are well within the guideline, but the usual size day pack (19X12X11 inches) does not meet the 10X13X8 inches definition of "small bag." The pack is not jammed and always fits beneath the seat with stuff needed for the flight. This is the first time this has ever arisen as an issue. Are they being really rigid about this?

A morning in Dublin

Hi,

If my plane arrives on time, I'll arrive in Dublin airport at 5AM. My fight home leaves at 2PM. If I can get transport into the city quickly, I could have as much as 6 hours to explore - and I won't be bringing any tour guide for such a short look around.

So, please share any recommendations you have for a morning spent in a town I haven't seen since 1980.

Thanks,
Kendrick

ambitious tour Ireland (and Scotland)

We are flying in and out of Dublin and have 14 full days. I have read many say to take your time and will take it under consideration however my style of travel has always been fast paced, so I'm hoping you all could still offer some help figuring out my itinerary. I tried to keep it one area per day. I already spent 3 days in Dublin years ago so I'm not including much of it this time.

We land 8:45am May 19 and we're coming from Canada on a red eye so I thought we could take Bus Éireann direct…

Hi everybody,

My name is Clarisse, I'm currently studying nursing in Belgium. It's my second year.
Next year, I'll maybe travelling to Ireland (Dublin) for 3 months to make internships at hospitals and to follow some lessons at school too.
I'm looking for some informations about nursing profession on the internet, but I don't find anything interesting. So, is that someone could give me informations? How about irish nurse's skills?

I already thank you for your answers,

Clarisse
