As far as I know, you can take however many pieces of luggage as you want, so long as none are heavier than 32kg.

Like the answer above, I think you can take as many suitcases as you want as long as you dont go over your 40kg.

So long as one individual item does not weigh more than 32Kg

Yes,

Wouldn't like the poor baggage handlers to hurt themselves.

I am waiting for the first one to sue on the grounds that as they were rifling through the luggage, they hurt themselves! :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

my DD won a HUGE Donkey (from Shrek) last year and we had to put it in the hold. WE were told we would have to fill out a luggage tag for it, the check in girl wasn't impressed when i filled in the following:

Name: Donkey

Address: Shrek's Cottage, Far Far Away Land

she looked at me like I has a looney!!

I think so - I have seen packages on the luggage carousel several times. As long as they are properly wrapped and labelled. Might be best to create some sort of handle on it from string or sticky tape (you know, a Blue Peter job!) to make it easier for the bagage handlers (and you) to lift.

The only problem I can think of is if the security men want to open it - but I assume they would seal it up again afterwards.

Perhaps you had better check this out with TCD, just to be on the safe side ??

i fetched a big disney christmas snowglobe back last year, in a big box and just put it in the hold, i was over weight in the hold though and had to pay 100 dollars but i thought that was good, seem as though I have 8 bags between two of us

On the subject of snowglobes, I have always been able to bring them into the cabin with me for no additionall charge.
