Ireland (Éire), also known as the Emerald Isle, is an island in north-western Europe which has been divided politically since 1920.
Most of the island is made up of the Republic of Ireland. The remainder is Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom.
Dublin is the capital and the countrys largest city. With excellent pubs, fine architecture and good shopping, Dublin is a very popular tourist destination and is the fourth most visited European capital.
The Republic of Ireland is part of the Eurozone, so as in many other European Union countries the currency here is the Euro (€). Stand Alone Cash machines (ATMs) are widely available in every city and town in the country and credit cards are accepted in 90% of outlets. Fees are not generally charged by Irish ATMs (but beware that your bank may charge a fee).
Along border areas, as the UK pound sterling is currency in Northern Ireland, it is common for UK pounds to be accepted as payment, with change given in Euro. Some outlets, notably border petrol stations will give change in sterling if requested. (Fuel is now much cheaper in the North, resulting in many Irish motorists purchasing their fuel North of the border).
