Customs & Immigration

After going through immigrations and claiming your bags, your must proceed through customs. At both Shannon and Dublin airports, if you have nothing to declare, you may leave through the green exit. Sometimes immigration officers will stop people for a spot check of their luggage, but this does not happen often. Visitors are allowed to bring 180 worth of good (gifts) into Ireland, one liter of spirits and two liters of wine, and 200 cigarettes. If you exceed these limits, you should proceed through the red exit to declare your merchandise.
