Exceptions to this policy cannot be made for any reason, including those of weather or personal emergencies. There is no refund for arriving late or leaving a trip early. Single room supplements are considered part of the trip price and are subject to cancellation fees.

Irish Atlantic Coast Tours is not responsible for expenses incurred in preparation for any cancelled trips, such as airline tickets or for costs incurred due to travel delays, flight cancellations, or illness.

How should I plan my flight home?

You should plan your departure for Day 9 of your tour. For example, if your tour is June 17-June 25, you fly out on June 25. Your Irish Costal Tour includes transportation to the airport, by shuttle or cab, the morning of Day 9.

What Currency will I use?

The Euro is the accepted form of currency in the Republic of Ireland. We recommend use of an ATM to get cash. Most small towns have ATMs. In addition, most restaurants and stores take debit and credit cards. However, you should let your bank know you are traveling to Ireland before the trip to avoid getting any transactions denied/declined. We can also help you get your currency converted at the airport when you arrive if you prefer to carry some cash
