Questions about the EU? Europe Direct can help.

I'm moving abroad in Europe – how do I get a residence permit? What are the rules on roaming charges? My flight's been cancelled - what are my rights? For the answers to all these questions about your rights and practical tips to help you move around the EU go to Your Europe.

For more information and all questions about EU matters visit the Europe Direct central information service or call 00 800 6 7 8 9 10 11.

If you're looking for advice or help in your neighbourhood, or for a local forum promoting dialogue and awareness about EU policies, contact your nearest local information centre.



Europe Direct logoThe European Commission supports a wide network of Information providers in Ireland including the Europe Direct Information Centres (EDICs). The mission of the network is to distribute information and advice about the EU’s policies, actively promote local and regional debate about the EU, allow the European institutions to disseminate local and regional information and give the public the opportunity to send feedback to the EU institutions.

There are 10 EDICs in Ireland which provide the following services: 

  • answers to questions on your EU rights, funding, etc.
  • invitations to local EU information/networking events
  • EU documents and publications
