Vaccines and safety in Ireland

Vaccines and local diseases

No vaccinations are required for visitors. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) certifies your entitlement to health insurance in Europe. During a temporary stay in a member state of the European Union, it entitles you to reimbursement of medically necessary treatment. We recommend that you take out additional insurance.

Safety in Ireland

Ireland is a safe country, but tourists can be victims of theft, especially in tourist areas. Thefts mainly occur in pubs, Internet cafés, buses, airport shuttles, youth hostels, parking lots at tourist attractions and on public roads. It is advisable to remain vigilant and to keep an eye on your personal belongings. And before you leave, don’t forget to consult the travel advice section of the France Diplomatie website.

Health and repatriation insurance in Ireland

Why take out international health insurance when traveling or living in Ireland? Quite simply because healthcare costs can quickly reach very high levels abroad. Repatriation cover is also an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident, medical repatriation to the nearest medical center or to the country of residence may be necessary. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to charter a helicopter or medical aircraft.
