What to bring/pack for your trip

We have limited storage space within our minibus so may use an additional box trailer to facilitate the carriage of Check-In bags. We are applying similar weight and size restrictions as some airlines and each delegate may only bring the following on board: 

-1 small daybag/satchel/backpack weighing no more than 7kg to be stowed under the seat.

-1 "Check-In" bag weighing no more than 20kg to be stowed in our luggage compartment/trailer. Note access to this bag will be limited while in transit so we would advise you keep essentials in your in-cabin daybag.

There are strict laws governing the weight and carriage of goods with passenger transport and we will follow them to the letter of the law. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are extending your stay in Ireland and have a requirement for more clothes/bags we recommend you use a left luggage facility in Dublin. Eg: http://www.touristofficedublin.com/luggagestorage.php

Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle. In order to keep our fields and mountains green the weather gods drop between 151 and 225 days of rain per year! So there is a <50% chance of sun or dry days. Keep that in mind when packing!

Your Daybag/Backpack should contain:

  • Lightweight waterproof jacket (and trousers).

  • A light fleece sweater

  • Packed lunch/snacks

  • Water.

  • Spare pair of socks.

  • Spare change of clothes in a sealed waterproof bag.

  • USB Battery Recharger pack for your phone in a sealed waterproof bag.

  • Personal First aid kit. (there is a First Aid kit on the bus

  • We STRONGLY recommend you have a protective case for your smartphone.

  • Passport, travel documents etc

  • Portable electronics like iPods, Laptops, Tablets, Cameras? etc

Note: You will be given a separate "Mojo Gear Bag" (see Gear and Apps) which you will have for the duration of the trip.

Your Check-in bag should have:

  • A small amount of summer/ light clothes e.g. T-Shirts/Shorts. You will probably only get to wear them once or twice during your trip.

  • Wear long sleeves and long trousers. Daytime temperature averages 12-15º but wind chill can make it feel colder.

  • Sturdy hiking boots are recommended (ideally waterproof) and a pail of light trainers/sandals for evening.

  • The trick to staying warm is to have many layers that you can put on and take off to adjust your temperature. Zip-up fleece jackets are a good idea.

  • A light raincoat should be in your daybag. A heavier fleece lined raincoat would be a good idea in your check-in bag.

  • A warm hoodie for the evenings.

  • A good pair of jeans is always a popular choice, you won’t be too sweaty in them and they are very durable but be warned, jeans can retain water for hours after getting wet.

  • We won't be hiking for extended periods but a pair of hiking trousers would be a nice addition

  • Its unlikely to be cold enough to need them but a hat, scarf and gloves may be useful in the evenings.

  • All the other obvious things like underwear, toiletries, chargers, etc are assumed.
