Two big stories have prompted us here at IrishCentral.com to create a easy guide for tourists going into Ireland.
Both the Plano 3 and a travel writer were banned from Ireland after inadvertently raising red flags at Irish immigration.
One tourist did not know the address of the place where he was staying and the other did not have a return ticket and no proof of an intending return.
As someone who can barely summon the vocabulary to order a cup of tea after flying through the night I can only sympathize with those who need their wits about them at 6am!
The key thing is to be able to demonstrate to the officer in charge that you have no intention of overstaying your welcome.
You need to know where you're staying, how long you're staying for and how you are going to pay for it all.
It's no different in Ireland than it is in the U.S. or Australia, two countries that I have been lucky enough to live in.
Here then is the IrishCentral.com guide for tourists who want to get through Irish immigration.
