Like the rest of the EU(except for England) Ireland uses the Euro. So you can use the same currency in Ireland as the rest of Europe(except for England) which is great for a long vacation throughout Europe. The conversion rate is at about 1 U.S. dollar=0.77 Euros.
Ireland is a republic, parliamentary democracy. This is very similar to us because there are the three branches of government although they have a prime minister. Their chief of state is similar to a president except for some few minor differences and the current the current chief of state of Ireland is Micheal D. Higgens.
