Dublin travel insurance
Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland, is situated on Ireland's east coast. Dublin is a fantastic city break for both literary artefacts and cultural wonders, and being only a few hours from Britain, there could be no easier place for a short break. Whether you're keen to explore the iconic 18th century buildings of Trinity College and the history Book of Kells, or enjoy the Irish Museum of Modern Art, it's clear that Dublin offers sites you and the whole family can enjoy. While you might think you won't need travel insurance for Dublin, the ROI (Republic of Ireland) is in fact in Europe, so you will need a comprehensive and reliable European travel insurance policy before you start your adventure to ensure you are covered against unforeseeable and insurable circumstances during your holiday.

What documents are needed to travel to Ireland?
British nationals travelling from the UK don't need a passport to visit Ireland. However, according to the UK Government website, Irish immigration officers will check the ID of all passengers arriving by air from the UK and may ask for proof of nationality, particularly if you were born outside the UK. For these reasons it's advised you do take your British passport with you.

The best months for weather are between May and September as these months have the least chance of rain or adverse weather conditions. However, it may be best to avoid the peak time between July and August.
