American in Ireland

Hello. This may be a silly question ... leaving Poland for Ireland in 2 weeks - how long can I stay in Ireland without a visa? And does anyone know anything about getting dual citizenship? My grandparents (on my mother's side) are Scotch. Could I in any way convince the UK to give me a European passport because of my long family line in Scotland?? Thanks for your help!

If you are a US citizen, take a look at, which is run by the US State Dept and gives info on entry requirements for US citizens into virtually every country in the world. I believe a US citizen can enter Ireland visa-free for at least 90 days.

I don't believe the UK offers dual citizenship. Ireland and Italy offer it to children and other descendants of citizens. Check out the homepage of the British embassy in Washington at or the Home Office of the UK Government at

You can only get a British Passport if you have a British parent (not grandparent)
