Some tips on healthcare when travelling to Ireland

Clifden, County Galway

Ireland has great healthcare, but there are a few things to keep in mind before you go. If you’re bringing medicines with you into Ireland, carry them in their original, clearly labeled container, along with your prescription or a letter from your doctor.

It’s a rule of thumb that anything over a three-month supply of medicine will be questioned and any “controlled drugs” as well as any syringes or needles, should be declared and explained in a letter from your doctor.

Pharmacies

There are plenty of pharmacies in Ireland, and they are a good first stop for travelers seeking medical advice or a local referral. Most towns have one or two pharmacies and urban areas have many. Pharmacies generally operate from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, but many pharmacies in urban areas open late and on weekends.

Bring a spare pair of glasses or contact lenses with you and your optical prescription just in case. Make sure that your travel insurance has medical cover. If you’re a member of the 27 EU countries or Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, bring a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which covers you for most medical care.

Just as with most of western Europe, there are no vaccinations required to visit Ireland.
