Below is Personal care realated List of Things to Carry to Ireland which I purchased in big bazar. It cost me arount Rs. 2000 and if you buy same things in Ireland it may cost you Rs. 10000. So purchase wisely.


I would suggest to get good saving of your luggage space don’t pack below things while travelling to Ireland. Else pack more masalas so that you will survive with good food taste.Do not bring below items in bags

Heavy Winter Jackets,Tamarind Paste,Bigger mirror,Dals,Flours, Pen and Pencil Box,Books( You will get it in Library) and Liquid items like Ghee, Pickles  or oils because if they got leaked in Bags your all clothes will be fucked uppp!!

Never keep metal as well as Masala or Liquid in cabin luggage bag keep in mind!!! or else your luggage will be thrown in garbage during the checkin process on airport.

Thats it from my side if you want any thing else you can bring it. Rest all the best and happy journey.

  1. Can you please suggest whether I should buy laptop from India or Ireland? I’ve seen many great deals on and, but m not sure about the payment process. I don’t want to end up paying extra bucks because of exchange rate and service charge.
    How about local dealers?

    1. Laptops are cheap here and there are other options like you can buy it online dealers from UK but I guess you will have to pay delivery charges from UK to Ireland.

  2. I got offer letter from GCD and its fees is affordable for my families financial status since my father is a tea vendor. If I work hard and improve my skills then I could find a job regardless of college right. Is there any prob in getting visa because of college. My course- Data analytics.

    1. No problem in visa processing but you need to have good amount of experience atleast 2 – 3 years exp in your field(data analysis) then getting job is easier otherwise its a strong struggle so I would suggest take some experience and then come here.

  3. God bless you.. this is so handy.. anyone going to university of Maynooth? If anyone from Bangalore is going to ireland this August/September 2017 please msg me on whatsapp 9731793753.. will create a group..
