Thank you astrid. I appreciate it. After doing lots of research, Ireland is exempt from the 90 day/180 day rule so I'm not worried about that. I was just worried about my overstay, even though it wasn't for very long. I have never done anything illegally or sneaky.. and I never tried to go around an...

Oh really? I have never heard of Ireland being part of the countries who have a 90 day in 180 day period. According to the superintendent at my garda station, I could leave and come back in when my mom was due to come if I brought all my paperwork with me. On my last post, a guy even said he only wa...

I have written on here many times about my situation in Ireland. I am an American citizen who is in a 1 1/2 relationship with an Irish citizen. I came to ...

No, I've been here since January 23, as a tourist from the United States for 3 months. I got the 3 month stamp at the airport, which is the one that can't be extended by the garda station, it requires permission from the DOJ. I called my superintendent 2 weeks ago asking what I could do to get an ex...

If you come to Ireland for 90 days, is that the only length of time you can stay within the whole year, or just at a time?
