Useful facts

Flight and Transfer

Flying from Dublin to Antigua takes approximately 9 hours. Antigua is not a large island and the distances are generally quite short. Transfers to a majority of the hotels should not take any longer than half an hour.

Visa Requirements

No visa is currently required for Irish passport holders. This should be re-checked on booking for any changes. Your passport must be valid for six months after departure from this country, and children and infants must also hold their own passport. All travellers should check full entry requirements prior to travel. There is a departure tax payable by tourists when leaving Antigua, costing US$28 or ECS$70.

Language

English is the official language and is spoken by everyone on the island. Local dialects can occasionally be heard when venturing into the town centres.

Currency

The Eastern Caribbean dollar (EC$) is the official local currency although in practice the US Dollar is also widely accepted, as are credit cards.

Electricity

110V-220V, two and three-pin plugs are standard.

Vaccination & Health

As health requirements change please consult with your GP or specialist travel clinic well in advance of your holiday for specific information related to your travel and medical history. Additional information can be found by visiting NaTHNaC or MASTA Travel health.

When the sun gets high in the sky, Antigua gets very hot. Drinking plenty of water is essential, as is wearing a high factor sun cream.
