Tipping

Jump to last reply

I know this has been brought up before, but I want to be clear on the subject. I am from the US and we tip about anyone who provides us service. Many of our workers get paid a little amount of money and rely on tips for their income.

I do not want to impose my culture on the Irish. I don't want to insult anyone by tipping inappropriately. However, I also do not want to not tip someone who may rely on the tip for income. So please help clarify this touchy subject, by telling me if I should tip in these circumstances and what percent.

Taxis:
Restaurant waiters/waitresses:
Bartenders:
Bell hops/ carry your luggage to your room at hotels:
Housekeepers/cleaning ladys in hotels:
Golf Caddies:
Any one else you can think of:

Thank you for your help.
