Security at the Embassy

For security reasons, do not bring luggage including large backpacks, laptop computers, or large cameras.  Security guards will hold small tourist cameras and cell phones until your departure, but there is no storage available for other items — please do not bring them to the Embassy.

Registering with the Embassy

If you would like to receive important information issued by the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy in Dublin, please register your stay in Ireland using the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) online registration service. By including your e-mail address at the time of registration, you will receive all Embassy bulletins and warden messages automatically.

As the Department continues to develop information on any potential security threats to U.S. citizens overseas, it shares credible threat information through its consular information program documents, available on the Internet. In addition to information on the Internet, travelers may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the U.S. or outside the U.S. and Canada on a regular toll line at 1-317-472-2328.
