Ireland adopted the euro as its official currency in 2002, like many other EU member states.
Current local time
Since Ireland is an EU member state, travelers with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) are entitled to free medical care should anything happen. If you are a non-EU citizen, health service must be paid fully, except for Australian inhabitants that have a reciprocal health agreement with Ireland.
Electricity and plugs
In Ireland, plugs have three rectangular prongs and the power sockets are Type G, the exact same as in the United Kingdom.
