    Assuming you mean Eire or Ireland then no problem with dogs. If you means Island (Iceland) then passport etc needed.

    Taking your dog to Eire is the same as taking it anywhere else in Europe so in fact you do need a pet passport, rabies vac, tapeworm treatment before you come back etc.

    Whether or not any checks are usually carried out I don't know but would you want to risk being the first person to get caught out?

    Just because some people may get away with it, especially when crossing from or into Ulster, doesn't mean you always will.

    Been crossing 10 years, and on a weekly basis years ago with my JH in the cab.......no problems.
    Ireland enjoys the same status as the UK relating to disease control.
    Take the pooch, enjoy the trip and if you're anywhere near the North west drop me a pm.... Free stop for a night or 3 if required.

    Looked on Irish ferries web site and they say they do
    But thanks Jonkil
    Also pets have to be in their kennel thingies not left in the car
    Maybe MotorHomes are different

    ... and I was thinking that perhaps Polly meant the Isle of Wight ;-)
