Health and Safety

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

altWhen traveling outside your home country, it is always advised to ensure that your travel insurance is up to date and includes medical insurance. Always carry basic first aid kit including allergy medication, Ibuprofen such as Advil and other necessary supplies in case of an emergency.

Since Dublin is a metropolitan city with a huge population, you have to watch out for pickpockets. Although it is generally considered safe, you shouldn’t carry too much cash on your person. Avoid dimly-lit streets and alleys when sightseeing at night. The Temple Bar district is teeming with tourists, which also attracts pickpockets – so always be aware of your surroundings at all times. Care should also be taken when using the Nitelink buses since there aren’t too many people commuting at that hour.

Be careful while crossing the street and be sure to follow the signs. Do not try to cross the street when the signal for pedestrians is red and be careful even when crossing on the zebra crossing, since some vehicles do not slow down.

Contact your embassy in case you lose your passport or other travel documents.

In case of a major accident or emergency, always carry the following information with you:
