Get Prepared for Your Trip to Ireland

What you need to know and what you need to bring.  

GETTING TO IRELAND

Your flights and travel will all be taken care of by the team, the only thing you need to do is make the flight! If you are not traveling with a Pernod Ricard representative and your flight is delayed or cancelled, don’t worry, just let us know an we will try our best to get you to Ireland as soon as possible.

Once you arrive in Ireland our team will take care of you from then until it’s time to say goodbye. You will be greeted by an IDL representative holding a Jameson sign at the airport who will take you to your first spot.

WHAT TO BRING?

With the unpredictable weather in Ireland I reckon you’ll need a rain coat. Nah, you’ll 100% need a rain coat so make sure to bring one.

Your passport or travel card and your visa documents if applicable.
