I think you have to be 18 or over and have a current bank account. Also, what do you mean about the "whole currency thing"? England uses the pound and Republic of Ireland uses the Euro. It might just make sense to take cash if it is not a long trip and lots of stuff (like accommodation) has already been paid for. Reply to this
