    Default Docs for sailing to Eire?

    Hi-

    A lazy Sat morning question (please don't shout at me for not finding info elsewhere... )

    Boat, VHFs, red diesel and People (all from UK) what should we turn up with in ROI?

    Lots of money and a good sense of humour!

    I tried quite hard to "book in" on arrival in Eire, some years back. Eventually I got thro to the Garda & they asked if we were on holiday, I said yes, & they replied, "Have a lovely time" & hung up on me . . .

    I think the official attitudes are a little more pragmatic & laid back rather than officious & pedantic. It is a wonderful place, with wonderful people. They may hate the "English" as a nation, but they do seem to be wonderfully welcoming & friendly to visitors, even when they have come from England.

    Enjoy your stay, it isn't hard to do.

    Went to Wicklow last summer then cruised up the coast. We had all taken our passports but no one asked for them. Had a wonderful time every one we met was friendly and helpful.

    usual boat doc's , passports, diesel same as europe vhf as uk
    though very unlikely you will be asked for any paperwork
    pretty much treat your journey as if you were travelling in uk
    we can use marked diesel but supposed to declare usage & pay tax
    you wont be asked for any paperwork by any marina .

    Their diesel is green but in my experience it mixes readily with red or white (or blue?).
    Is it an allegory?

    I'm back on the West Coast so looking forward to crossing to Ireland. I never dared in my earlier boat, a 19' Seawych.

    Histamines work on my allegories
