10 Essential Items to Pack for an Unforgettable Trip to the Emerald Isle

Ireland, situated in Northern Europe just West of the United Kingdom, is a sought tourist destination for many reasons – the curving coastline sculpted by the full force of the Atlantic Ocean often leave a lasting impression, the landscapes of barren limestone and sacred sights are steeped in myths and legends, and traditional fishing villages are quaint and full of charm.

Travelling to Ireland means something different for each traveller, and that’s why what to pack varies based on the reason, planned activities, travel style and season. Some people visit Ireland for a short city break while others; drive the whole length of the Wild Atlantic Way and explore its National Parks.

Either way, don’t let those pretty postcard panoramas fool you, even during the summer months, they can turn into a messy scene within a moment. Being warm and comfortable while travelling and exploring is of paramount importance.

That’s why, before you jump on a plane and let yourself loose in the Irish countryside, whether it is to explore secluded islands, observe wildlife in National Parks or venture on a hiking adventure,  you need to be prepared.

Over the last 15 years, we’ve spent a great deal of time travelling through different parts of Ireland and based on our experiences, we wanted to put together a useful packing guide.

Don’t forget that two of the most important things to bring along is your love for adventure and a sense of humour because stepping out of your comfort zone and trying experiences that you can’t fit around your regular life will help you to see Ireland from a different perspective.

General packing tips for Ireland

Whether you are packing for a long weekend or a two week holiday around Ireland, there are a few basic tips you can use for stress-free packing:

  • Use packing cubes to stay more organized
  • Make an actual packing list of what you’ll need
  • Fill dead space with small items like socks around the edges
  • Pack your gadgets into ziplock bags
  • Weigh your luggage to avoid dreaded extra fees
  • Label your suitcase, so it stands out on a baggage carousel
  • Start packing early

Basic essentials

The best way to start packing, be it to Ireland or somewhere else in the world, is with basic essentials. This means-get all your travel documents are in order and dust off your suitcase or a backpack if you are planning on backpacking through Ireland.

Before packing, make sure your passport is on a date and your suitcase is in great condition, check for dirt or spills from your previous trip and remove old baggage labels and stickers attached to it.

• Travel documents | Valid passport and drivers licence if you plan on renting a car as well as travel insurance. Depending on where you are coming from, you might need a visa too.  Also, always bring copies of all the necessary travel documents, both electronic and physical.

• Basic clothing | Start with essentials, such as underwear and socks, then follow by add-ons and basic layerings such as tank tops and cotton shirts. Make sure everything you pack can be easily dressed up and down, wash well and make you feel good.

• Pain Medication | In Ireland, over-the-counter pain reliefs such as Panadol and Disprin are available at pharmacies, gas stations and from most grocery stores, but if you suffer from travel sickness, it’s always a good idea to sort out your medication before your trip.

• Prescription drugs | Bring sufficient quantities and make sure they are in original packaging with the original prescription or even doctor’s letter.  Always carry them in hand luggage, in case your main luggage goes missing.

• Necessary tech | Converters and chargers. In Ireland, the most common type of outlet is Type G (three-pronged plug), the same as in the UK. If you are a frequent traveller, it’s a good idea to invest in a good quality adaptor.

• Money | The official currency in The Republic of Ireland is the euro and 1euro is 100 cents. Major credit cards are accepted pretty much everywhere but make sure you have cash on hand too. The most common banknotes are €5, €10, €20 and €50.

• Toiletries | Minimize the number of toiletries you bring because liquid quickly adds up and you can get pretty much anything you need in Ireland unless of course there is that one specific brand item you cannot live without. For travel in the summer month, bring sunscreen and for winter- a good quality chapstick.

Essential Clothing to Pack for Ireland

Packing for Ireland’s different climates can be tricky, and when it comes to clothing, layers are your best friends, and seasonally appropriate clothing is the key. When travelling to Ireland, be prepared for sunny weather, heavy rains, damp weather, strong winds and light sprinkles throughout all seasons.

To give you a better idea of what to pack, look at Irelands top day trip from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher. It takes you from windy coastlines and cosy pubs to Galway city and exposed landscapes within hours, so you have to be prepared to easily transition from one outfit to another one.

Depending on how well you can handle cooler temperatures, you might want to pack comfortable long sleeve tops and sweaters you can use to pair up.

Don’t pack too many shoes and clothes and leave anything for those what-if scenarios behind. Make sure, everything you pack can be paired together with other clothing.

• Waterproof boots | Even if you don’t plan on hiking in the soggy ground, sturdy walking shoes are a must as you’ll be doing a fair bit of walking. Ireland is pretty casual, and you’ll see people wearing everything from hiking boots to wellies even during the summer months.

• Waterproof jacket | Without a doubt, the most essential clothing item you should bring to Ireland. Unless you fancy running around with a bright yellow Pancho purchased at a pound shop that is going to, invest in a good quality rain jacket that is windproof, waterproof and breathable.

• Hiking boots | If you plan on exploring Irelands West coast and venture off the grid, then hiking boots with a good grip is a MUST! Not only they will keep your feet dry and warm much better than flats or sneakers: you’ll also be more comfortable and safe when walking along the coast or hiking through the bog.

• Fleece or Sweater | There is nothing better than a perfect travel sweater, that is ideal for keeping you warm during the flights and cosy on chilly evenings.

• Warm socks | Keeping your feet warm and dry with breathable socks during those wet days in Ireland is very important because shoes and boots alone won’t keep you warm. You can find plenty of excellent quality, lightweight and fashionable socks in outdoor stores.

Camera Essentials

The scenery is one of the main reasons why people long to see Ireland. From remote islands and mysterious caves to rugged peninsulas and towering cliffs, you’ll find Emerald island an incredibly photogenic country.

The prospect of going on a photography adventure, no matter how big or small is always exciting. But to make any trip more memorable and enjoyable, you have to pack first.

Most likely you’ll be standing outside in one spot for a few hours taking pictures and marvelling at the stunning scenery. What you are going to wear will depend on the time of the year.

• Camera | If you are into photography then packing a DSLR  camera is pretty obvious, but any camera will work for your trip. Canon cameras are still the best and take fantastic images.

• Camera bag | With a DSLR camera also comes its own dedicated bag to keep all your photography safe and clean.

• Light tripod | Essential for photographing beautiful Irish cities at night and for capturing long exposure shots. There’s a chance you can encounter Aurora Borealis, especially in the Northern parts of the country, that’s why a stable tripod is a must.

• Accessories | We always take more photos than we think, that’s why extra memory cards, spare batteries and external hard drives are essential. There’s nothing worse than having your camera battery die on you or running out of storage space while travelling through the beautiful Irish landscape.

Other things to bring on your trip

• Water bottle | Commercial airlines have very low humidity, staying hydrated is very important while travelling. An excellent stainless steel bottle is our favourite.

• Notebook | Can come handy for technology malfunctioned and are great if you have to write down a phone number or an address and after years on the road will end up as a cute little souvenir. A notebook is also great for email addresses and phone numbers of your next of kin, a health care provider at home, your embassy etc.

• Travel umbrella | It rains a lot in Ireland, be ready for a sudden downpour, even in summer with a compact travel umbrella that doesn’t take up to much space.

• External power pack | It’s a good idea to invest in a good quality external power pack that you can use to recharge your smartphone on the go.

Wheather seasons in Ireland

No matter the season, the weather in Ireland is very changeable yet rarely extreme, it’s pretty mild year-round. And if you stay long enough, you’ll get to experience four seasons in one day. Always keep an eye on Met Eireann weather warnings for the latest updates.

Spring – March, April, May

Spring is such a beautiful season in Ireland; it’s a perfect time to avoid summer crowds, and you’ll be greeted with blankets of colourful spring flowers and freshly sprouted leaves.

Spring is the lambing season, and it’s when the world-famous ST. Patricks Day Festival takes place.

During the spring you can encounter blinding sunshine, rain and wind all matter of days.

  • What to bring: waterproof clothing and footwear, breathable layers as well as warm socks, umbrella and a warm jacket.
  • Average spring temperature: 7’C-13’C (45’F-55’F)
With so many lambs being born on the farm, how does the farmer keep track of who belongs to who? With a can of spray paint believe it or not!

Summer – June, July, August

Summertime in Ireland is the warmest time of the year, but given its location on the globe, it can still feel chilly if you arrive from a place where the weather is hot and dry. Summer is the high season and running into a rain shower, or two is very common.

Travelling to Ireland during the summer month means packing less bulky clothing and more lightweight and fashionable items such as summer dresses, floral tops, light cardigans and denim jackets.

  • What to bring: a light jacket, easily layered clothing, umbrella, bathing suit, sunglasses and sunscreen.
  • Average summer temperatures: 15’C-21’C (60’F-70’C)
Summer arrives with an abundance of flowers.

Autumn – September, October, November

Generally, in autumn, rain comes back to Ireland with full force, and it brings lots of dark and grey days, except for those few sunny ones when we get to gaze into the infinite blueness of the sky and admire autumn colours.

Autumn also comes with off-season rates, epic waves, roads free of traffic and it’s the peak time of whale watching.

September is our favourite month to explore Ireland, days are slightly cooler, kids are back to school, most of the visitor has left yet it is still sunny and slightly warmish.

  • What to bring: light hats and gloves, long pants, warm socks, rain jacket and warm pullover.
  • Average autumn temperature: 13’C-18’C (55’F-65’F)
Sligo woodlands in early autumn,

Winter – December, January, February

Only the brave attempt to visit Ireland in the dead of winter because the weather can be brutal. In general, winter is cold and wet with strong winds and frequent rain showers. Snow is unusual, yet we have seen blankets of it in the past few years.

  • What to bring: warm hats, scarfs and glows, a heavy coat and warm boots and lots of warm socks and a chapstick. Wear two or three thin layers instead of one bulky winter jumper.
  • Average winter temperatures: 0’C – 10’C ( 32’F – 50’F)

    1. Thanks so much, Leighton! Ireland’s weather is as varied as its incredible landscape. Whether you’re planning a city break or a self-drive journey through remote rural areas, make sure to pack smart and stay warm and dry to make the most of your time on the island. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva

I am slowly learning to leave behind just-in-case items and dresses that I haven’t worn in two years. I really hope you get to visit Ireland one day, hopefully, we can all travel freely soon!

Although our winters are not as crude as yours, it’s still cold, but thankfully sunny and little to no rain, so I cannot really complain, but I cannot wait for warmer weather. Take good care and all the best. Greetings from the Mediterranean. 😊

  2. Never been to Ireland, but since we discovering your blog, it’s high on our list! I can see that at least one of our suitcases will have to packed with waterproof jackets and lots of warm socks 😁.
    Our Camino hiking journeys in Spain and Portugal taught us to pack light and very minimalistic … we only had three sets of clothes for 29 days (because we had to carry our luggage in a backpack every day).

    1. Hiking Camino is a life-changing experience for most, I know many people that been planning the pilgrimage for years, preparing, reading, training, yet two of the most important things to bring along proved to be proper hiking shoes and a comfortable backpack! Did you ever write about your long-distance hiking adventure on your blog, I would love to read about it! As for Ireland, waterproofs are a must, even if you plan on visiting during the summer month!

        I wrote about both Camino’s (a day-by-day journal) on our blog, you can find them here:

    1. Hi, Mark! In the art of packing, as so often in life, you learn through your mistakes. And I have certainly made a few and needed to purchase something upon arrival! At the moment, we are experiencing “unseasonably warm” weather which is due to a warm air mass from the south but this is likely to be replaced by a polar front over the weekend. That’s why, when travelling to Ireland, you have to pack smart! Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva

  3. Great summation Aiva. We have been to Ireland 6 times since our first visit on our 1977 honeymoon and it never disappoints. In 2008, we met many relatives we never knew we had and that is what keeps us coming back. Definitely good waterproof hikers are a must. You have to get out and see the place. A good voltage convertor is a must and certainly lighter these days than the old ones. We bring our GPS with the Europe chip to help us find our way (rental car ones are too expensive). Make sure you can drive stick if you are renting a car and do take the optional insurance. Most of all, take in a music night at a pub, try some Guinness, be prepared for sheep or cattle crossing the road, smile, laugh and enjoy. You will be back. Stay well Aiva. Allan

    1. With its ever-changing weather, Ireland is not a country where you want to be unprepared, especially if you plan on visiting offseason. As you’ve been to Ireland many times, Allan, you know well that the weather is very variable at our latitude – it’s an interplay between warm southerly winds and cold polar northerlies. But we’ve been blessed really the last two winters, we haven’t had that very severe weather, even today I was surprised to see my outdoor thermometers go past the +16 degrees mark! Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva

    1. Thank you, Casey, I hope you find it useful! Our climate can be summed up as being mild, moist and changeable with abundant rainfall and a lack of temperature extremes. As you know – Ireland will get rain throughout the year, it’s the only real constant in our climate, so always bring plenty of waterproofs! Cheers 🙂 Aiva xx


    1. How exciting, I am glad to hear you are planning on visiting reland this summer. I’d say that the weather transition from humid subtropical to a mild, temperate climate aka our gloriously unpredictably weather can be quite interesting! Wishing you a fun-filled trip!

    1. Thank you kindly 🙂 They don’t call it the Emerald Isle for anything. Ireland is a beautiful blend of urban adventures, small-town charm, and countryside that begs to be wandered. Given the amount of rain we receive daily, it’s so important to pack appropriate clothing and footwear. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva

  5. It’s a good article to keep people waiting and better prepared. I hope that this year I will finally be able to come back, since I have been away for 12 years. In my experience, June is usually the best month. Nature is green and full of flowers, the light is clear whereas the rest of the summer a hazy layer breaks the beautiful light.

    1. Thanks so much. There’s nothing worse than arriving at your destination to find the weather much warmer/colder than initially expected and looking for a clothing store. I have to agree with you – June is one of the best months to visit Ireland. To announce the start of the summer high season, June has something going on almost every day in every region of the country. A lively atmosphere pervades in the villages, towns and cities, and out in the countryside, be that up in the hills or along the coast, it is getting crowded. Some of the sunniest weather of the year makes June even easier to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you get to visit Ireland this year! Aiva 🙂

  6. Packing cubes are a lifesaver: I received two sets when I first began traveling solo, and I’ve never looked back. They are such a great way not only to organize your clothes based on category (e.g. shirts, pants, underwear), but they also are neat and compact to fit in your luggage, so that you’re not stuffing your belongings to the brim! Ireland is definitely a temperamental country, from what I’ve experienced, and I’d also add an umbrella just for any occasion (i.e. you never know if it’ll rain!).

    1. Hi Rebecca 🙂 It doesn’t matter where you travel to; you always have to pack for the environment be it spending your time café crawling in the cities or getting lost in the wilderness! I love packing cubes – they are both time-savers and space-savers. Not only do they keep everything super-organized, but you can also absolutely fit more in your bag or suitcase as a result. By now I’ve tried every packing technique I’ve come across, from tight folding to rolling every single item, but nothing works as well as the cubes. And yes, an umbrella for a trip to Ireland is a must! Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day. I hope all is well. Aiva 🙂

  7. Apart from its natural beauty, Ireland becomes increasingly interesting for me because of other things as well, especially how progressive its society seems today (or at least based on what I read from the news). And when I do go to this island one day, I’ll be sure to revisit this post so that I won’t miss anything.

  8. This is such a well-put travel list, I’ll be saving this for any travels to a place with similar weather (and even otherwise)! I was really happy to see that I could tick a good number of these off my own list of travel essentials, but you’ve definitely made me add some more to my list now – I think I really should invest in a sturdy umbrella and a good travelling sweater/jacket!

    Ever since I moved to college I’ve been getting better and better at packing, and I’ve realised that there’s a lot to be admired in the process of packing. It’s almost like an art in itself – ticking off essentials, covering what-if’s, making the most of all-purpose items, filling every nook and cranny, and still leaving yourself with a light-weight backpack or suitcase. Thank you for sharing, Aiva, and I hope you’re having a good day! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Arshia 🙂 Ireland’s climate can be unpredictable. We often see four seasons in one hour, let alone in one day/week! This is equally true in summer as much as spring or autumn, so that’s why it’s important to bring the right clothing and gear. I have to agree with you – packing is almost like an art in itself especially with airlines squeezing our luggage allowances as well as our money saving plans, it may well be time to accept the fact that a hairdryer or a ‘just in case’ woolly jumper have to be wiped from our packing essentials list forever.

    1. I am glad to hear you are planning on exploring beyond Dublin in near future. From the Connemara pony to the mighty red deer, there are many amazing species native to Ireland. Keep in mind that Ireland has fewer plant and animal species when compared to Britain or mainland Europe. But don’t think this means there’s any shortage of compelling creatures native to the Emerald Isle. Nevertheless, there are a few natural wildlife spots worth visiting such as Phoenix Park – for the iconic wild deer, Rathlin Island – for the puffins, the Wild Atlantic Way – for the sea life, Glenveagh National Park – for the red deer and eagles. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx


    1. Thanks so much! I wouldn’t travel without my packing cubes, with them, I can organize my suitcase and know exactly how much space a cube is going to take up before I’ve even packed it. Generally, I try to refrain from packing garments that can only be worn with a certain jacket, for instance, or other items that are difficult to match. I prefer pieces that can be easily paired with a range of items from my wardrobe and most of the time I succeed! Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx


    1. Thank you kindly, Kerry 🙂 I have to confess, as much as I love travelling, packing a suitcase isn’t my favourite thing to do. Even if I make out a perfect list and am super organized about it, I can still feel anxious and stressed to pack everything into my suitcase. The dread of wondering if everything is going to fit or if my bag is going to be too big is real. All is well here. February is already upon us and it’s so exciting to finally see the very first spring flowers! Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

I used to be very good at packing for a holiday too, but that changed a little bit since we started travelling as a family because on top of all the stuff you need to remember to bring, you’ve also got to think about what’s needed for your babies and/or children…who are notoriously difficult to pack for because they require so many extras! 🙂

  9. I love Ireland and have been there several times. The most recent was in 2001. Was it really that long ago?! I packed whatever essentials would fit in my backpack, nothing more. My son, on the other hand, packed his backpack with CDs and a CD player *eye roll* I suppose there was some underwear there too, probably to cushion the CDs.

    1. Thanks so much 🙂 When it comes to exploring Ireland, it’s all about being warm and comfortable. After all, Ireland is known to have four seasons in one day, even during the summer month. The most important factors in planning and packing for Ireland are the activities you’ll be doing on your trip and the weather. You can easily get away by wearing casual hiking clothing wherever you’re in Ireland. Dublin, of course, is a bit trendy and stylish, but it’s what you would expect from any capital city.

Even after 20 years on the island, the weather can still take me by surprise! It took me a very long time to adapt to the mood swings of the Irish weather. I can certainly say, that just like its people, Ireland’s weather is never boring or predictable! Thanks for stopping by and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx
