Cash in Ireland

Jump to last reply

Making my 2nd trip to Ireland in a week. Last time I went, about 6 years ago, I just went to the ATMs when I needed more cash. My bank did not charge me a fee at the time and the Irish bank did not either. It made it very convenient because I could get cash when I needed it and did not need to carry large amounts all week.

Is getting cash from the ATM still the most common or recommended way to have euros on hand during our travels? Is there a better/easier way you advise?

Also, do most gas stations accept credit cards, as they do in the US?

Thanks! Excited for our trip! It will be my wife's 1st visit. We were a bit worried since weather.com says it is rainy pretty much all day every day on the west coast right now and we did not want 10 days of endless rain... but reading other threads on the forum here has convinced me that 10 days of Irish rain is not as bad as 10 days of Boston rain. =)

I am sure I will have more questions in the next few days as we prepare... so thanks in advance for all your help!
