Is Ireland in the group of EU countries that do not need passports to travel abroad?  The Schengen group its name I guess?  then you can travel on any kind of identity! will check and let you know.

Ireland is not in the Schengen. 

According to the British FCO you won't need to get a new passport before you go.

fished around and fpund this on the UK  F & C Office website:


You must hold a valid passport to enter Poland. For stays of up to three months your passport must be valid for the proposed duration of your stay; you do not need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this. However, it is always sensible to have a short period of extra validity on your passport in case of any unforeseen delays to your departure. You do not have to wait until your old passport expires to apply to renew it. Any time left on your old passport when you apply will be added to your new passport, up to a maximum of nine months.

Like the UK, Ireland is not in the Schengen. Therefore Irish citizens WILL need a valid passport to travel to Poland...

Great idea, it's beautiful there.

Solina, a very nice lake there where you can rent boats.

Purchase?  anywhere actually, all supper markets sell them: basic camping stuff, i.e. tents, sleeping bags etc.

How strict are Polish pharmacy's in terms of getting medication over the counter?
For example in Ireland, you need a perscription to get sleeping tablets but in countries like Spain you can get stuff like that over the counter. Would Polish pharmacies be more in line with Spanish ones or similar to Ireland?

Difficult to say, probably you can say that to some extend strict too but then you can buy some medication not only at pharmacy's but also in super markets, like pain killers etc. 

Over the counter you can buy sleeping tablets which are herbal products. If I were you I wold simply take a supply of any medication that you need from home and not to rely on local products as they definitely differ.

Hi Vojt,

What kind of power outlets are used in Poland? Is it standard European ones and will a standard converter do the job?

Thanks
