Useful facts for your holiday to Kuala Lumpur

Flights and Transfers

Flights from Dublin to Kuala Lumpur International Airport take around 16 hours

Visa Requirements

Irish passport holders do not require a visa.


Malay is the official language, although English is quite commonly spoken as a second language.


Getting around Kuala Lumpur is relatively easy thanks to a broad public transport system. There’s a monorail and urban rail system, however it is run by separate companies and trying to navigate between the two is sometimes a pain. There are plentiful taxis, but they should not be used during rush hours as traffic comes to a halt. Buses are available and are quite cheap. Walking is also a possibility if you only want to get around the city centre.


The ringgit is the official currency.
