The Irish Government does not have a representative in this country. As a result, it is not possible to provide any more detailed travel advice as we have no way of objectively verifying information and ensuring that it is accurate. Likewise, the level of consular assistance and support we can provide to Irish citizens in times of emergency may be limited. Irish citizens may wish to bear this in mind before making plans to visit this country.
In countries where Ireland does not have any formal representation, emergency consular assistance, advice and support may be sought through resident offices of other EU member states.
Irish citizens requiring emergency assistance in this country should first approach their tour operator representative, local tour guide or hotel management and contact their insurance provider.
