1. What is the best time?
The best time to travel to Dublin It is in summer when temperatures are around 20 degrees and there are more hours of light. However, prices in these months are the highest of the year and there is much more tourism.
Spring and autumn, especially May and October, is also a good time to visit the emerald island with less tourism and still pleasant temperatures.
The winters are cold and sometimes less rainy than the summers, besides the prices and tourism go down a lot, so you don't have to discard these months for a trip to Dublin.
2. Entry requirements and travel insurance
For travel to Dublin, if you are from a European Union country, you will only need to carry your ID or Passport, without the need to pay a visa. If you are not from any European Union country, we recommend you look at the entry requirements on the page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of your country, to see what kind of agreement you have with Ireland.
Although it is not a mandatory entry requirement, it is highly recommended to bring the European Health Card that covers any health problem.
If you do not have this card or want to go more covered, think that there are situations like a repatriation that does not fit, it is best to take out good travel insurance.
