    Survivor guide: Stag do in Dublin


    Survivor guide: Stag do in Dublin

    Ireland’s premier city is a hotspot for soon-to-be grooms to celebrate their last nights of freedom in the company of good friends. In this article, Accident Advice Helpline publishes a handy survivor’s guide to stag dos, and avoiding accidents on holiday in Dublin.

    Why Dublin for a stag do?

    A vibrant and exciting city with a rich cultural history and electric night life, Dublin is an extremely attractive place to hold a stag do. Despite the current financial climate, tourism is still an extremely important sector of the Irish economy.

    Handy information to know

    The emergency services number in the Republic of Ireland is the same as the United Kingdom, 999. Be aware that in the unfortunate circumstances you require the police, they are referred to as the “Garda Siochana” (Guardians of peace) in the Republic of Ireland. Unfortunately, Dublin, like any major city, has a serious crime problem. It is best not to travel alone at night time. Try not to get separated from others and be particularly careful when using an ATM in Ireland.

    Money

    The Republic of Ireland is a member of the Eurozone and uses the Euro. However, due to the amount of trade from Northern Ireland, it is quite normal for a number of businesses to accept Sterling, and Bureau de Change services are available on almost every street.

    The price of alcohol

    In comparison with the United Kingdom, Ireland has rather conservative drinking hours, all supermarkets will stop serving alcohol at 10pm and often nightclubs close their doors earlier. Be aware, prices in Ireland are among the highest in the EU and it is quite normal to pay anywhere around €5 for a pint, and in some of the more famous tourist locations, a pint can cost upwards of €8.50.

    Getting around

    Taxis are numerous on the streets of Dublin and although reasonably expensive, they are perhaps the safest way of getting around. Alternatively you can travel on Dublin’s extensive bus network or use the Luas, an over ground tram system which covers some of the busiest routes in and around Dublin.

    Thank you for reading Accident Advice Helpline’s survivor’s guide to stag do’s in Dublin. Remember, in the unfortunate event of an accident, even if it happens while abroad, you may still be able to claim compensation, provided it was within the last 3 years and wasn’t your fault.
