It is easy to get mixed up in currencies, specially when travelling to Great Britain. England is a EU member and so is Ireland, but still we have all heard about British Pounds, Sterling and Euro… what currency are they using where? First of all, the British Pounds and Sterling is the same currency, just two different names on the same baby. British Pounds are used in England, Scotland and in Northern Ireland.
But, when travelling to Ireland the currency changes, and in Ireland and in Dublin Euro is the currency to be used. These differences are useful to keep in mind, especially if you are on a day trip from Belfast to Dublin, or if you plan on travelling from Dublin to Belfast, or maybe from Dublin to Liverpool.
To get hold of Euro in Dublin, just use an ATM. If you would like to check how much your local currency is worth compared to the Euro, use the currency converter.
