I would like to bring a gift of toasted Georgia Pecans for my Irish hosts. Do Irish Customs allow me to bring them into Ireland?
You might get an answer on this link - www.revenue.ie/en/customs/public-travel.html
My interpretation is that YES, they are allowed as long as I don't sell them.
Send them to me. I'll take care of them for you :)
bring them, I cant see a problem, and if there is you can always eat them!!
Can't imagine you'll have a problem.
pack them in your hold luggage in case there is an announcement onboard about a passenger have a nut allergy
the answer is yes...i only know this as i was on the same plane with kilted2 and his wife out of chicago and they took nuts and fudge that they make on the plane with them...although her luggage was searched in both north carolina and chicago she was allowed to proceed with both....Edited: 22 May 2013, 13:23
A customs check in North Carolina and Chicago would only indicate that export is permitted. It is Irish Customs who decide what can be imported into Ireland. The information that you will be confronted with at Irish Customs is here: revenue.ie/en/customs/leaflets/pn1878a.html
There is no specific prohibition for nuts, while plants and bulbs and hay and straw are prohibited. Since the nuts are processed and toasted, presumably in original packaging and imported in a small quantity for your own use I can't see any problem. You can walk through the green channel with a clean conscience (at least as far as the nuts are concerned) :-)
I don't think you should bring toasted pecans to Ireland without someone here testing them to see does the Irish climate have a deleterious effect on them. I will generously offer to test them for you, just to be on the safe side. About a pound would be a safe sample.
doneraile, you are so kind to sacrifice yourself for the common good of man...lol..
dyoll, both airports cleared them to take their homemade fudge and nuts into ireland...i feel certain that tsa knows what is allowed to leave our country and enter ireland...sorry if my post wasn't clear...
