Three things Irish tourists travelling to Spain, Portugal and Italy need to know – dress code, strikes and airport | #government | #hacking | #cyberattack


Irish tourists heading on their holidays in the coming days and weeks will need to be prepared as things may be a little different from the last time they were abroad.

Some dress codes to gain access to popular resorts have changed, which might require you to rethink your holiday wardrobe as well as airline staff strikes, also due to take place in the coming weeks.

And of course, knowing when to arrive at the airport to ensure you don’t miss your flight is essential, especially given recent delays.

Here are the three things all Irish tourists need to know before heading away this summer.

Dress codes

Some of Spain’s most popular party resorts have issued a warning to tourists regarding their holiday wardrobes.

Tourists leave the beach dragging suitcases in the sand on July 16, 2021 in Ibiza, Spain. The Balearic Islands, Spain’s holiday archipelagos were moved to the UK’s amber list. Travellers who are not fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will need to self-isolate for up to ten days upon return to the UK from the Balearics after 4am on July 19.

Restaurants in one of Majorca’s most popular party resorts have said they won’t be allowing people wearing football shirts or glow-in-the-dark hats into their premises.

Business people in Playa de Palma say they are already fed up with so-called “drunken tourism”, even though the season has only just started.

A group of restaurants in the resort have come together to impose new dress codes that all tourists must follow, or they will be refused access.

The clothing banned includes tank tops without straps, swimming trunks, swimsuits, any accessories purchased from street vendors, such as gold chains or glow-in-the-dark hats, and football strips.

The venues have placed QR codes at the entrance for customers to check the dress code.

If a tourist is wearing any clothes showing the logo of a business that “promotes drunken tourism”, they too will be banned.

Ryanair strikes

Ryanair’s Belgium cabin crews have become the latest group to join strikes due to take place at the end of the month throughout Europe.

Unions representing Ryanair workers in various European countries said on Friday that they were planning a strike in Belgium from June 24 to June 26.

Ryanair’s Portuguese cabin crew have said a tree day strike will go ahead on June 24, 25 and 26.

The strike could see a possible 50 flights to and from Ireland to Portugal impacted over the course of the three days.

Ryanair’s Spanish cabin crew announced a six-day strike. The action will take place on June 24, 35, 26 and 30, and on July 1 and 2.

Meanwhile, Ryanair’s Italian cabin crew announced strikes on June 25.

Unions FILT-CGIL and UIL Trasporti said they sought improved pay and conditions after staging a four-hour stoppage earlier in June.

Dublin Airport

All passengers are advised to allow 2.5 hours before a short-haul flight and 3.5 hours before a long-haul flight.

If checking a bag, verify your airline’s check-in & bag drop desk opening times, and if possible, allow up to one hour of additional time to check-in luggage.

Security in T1 is now open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While security in T2 opens at 04.00, so people flying from T2 should factor this in.

Departures Road outside Terminal 1 is now closed to all vehicles, so passenger drop-off has moved to our Atrium Road.

Departing passengers can enter via our Atrium. This change will remain in place for the coming weeks and is to allow for the installation of covered passenger queuing areas outside of T1 for use if needed.

These covered areas will be in place and available to provide shelter for passengers.

Face coverings are not mandatory in airports in Ireland or on-board aircraft, although we continue to advise the wearing of face coverings.
