Waterproof rain boots aka “wellies”

Waterproof shoes cover up to your ankle while boots cover up to your knee. Depending on the budget you have, you can buy the boots of your choice. Rain boots are essential for your Ireland packing list because they help to keep your feet dry.

Whether you’re on the streets of Dublin, hiking in the soggy ground or walking around the coast, your waterproof rain boots along with a pair of warm socks can keep your feet feeling cozy.

A poncho

Think your umbrella takes too much space but you need something to keep yourself dry? Pick up a poncho instead. A poncho folds up to take a teeny tiny space in your suitcase and can also be carried in the backpack when you go sightseeing.

That’s all folks – you’re partly ready with your Ireland packing list.
