Budget question

Hey,

So I've been planing my budget for my up-coming Ireland trip, and it's approximately 100 euro per day (accommodation included).

Is that enough money?

Thanks,

Noa.

If you are staying in hostels 100 may be enough but not for hotels.

Have you not booked accommodation yet? Doing so may give you a much better start for planning a budget.

Also does the 100 include transportation?

Hey,

I meant that after paying for accommodation I'm left with 100 euro per day. Yes it includes transportation.

Thanks.

Then I think you are ok. I am going in Sept and without accomodation expenses, I am budgeting about 100 to 120. I will have gas (petro) expense, sightseeing (which seem to go from a low of 6 euro to 20 euro admission) and a great dinner. My breakfasts are inc in hotel/BandB rates. At my age, I am not interested in buying too many souvenirs perhaps with the exception of a lovely Irish sweater.

Something I havent seen is the average price per souvenirs.. I have a large family I have to buy for. I thought about budgeting 16 euros($20) per person. Is that enough for the average shirt, shot glass, towel?

I found Carroll's had some of the best prices for the "touristy" gifts. Each store seemed to have slightly different things. There seemed to be at 5 in the Dublin Center area with the largest store on O'Connell street offering immediate VAT refunds for purchases above $50 (if you had your passport with you). At least that is what they told us.
