Ten Things To Know Before You Visit Ireland
  1. Don’t ask people about “The Troubles” or any politics.
  2. Be prepared to be referred to as a “Yank” (those from America).
  3. Don’t say, my last name is Murphy. Do you know where my family is from?
  4. Pack light – the cars are tiny.
  5. Avoid driving if possible.
  6. Drinking under the influence is strictly enforced. Have a designated driver.
  7. Eat the local, fresh food.
  8. Be prepared for the weather – pack layers and rain gear.
  9. Mind your manners – say “please and thank you”, wait your turn, don’t be demanding and practice patience.
  10. Don’t kiss the Blarney Stone – the locals pee on it!
