As one of the countries in Europe with the strictest measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, it is very positive to see that Ireland is on its path to recovery. The Irish government can begin relaxing the measures in place as the situation progresses positively. You will find under the following link detailed guidance on the new easing of restrictions. Further relaxation of the measures in place is planned for June 7th, 2021. 


The strict travel restrictions for travelers entering Ireland remain in place. Every traveler must complete a Passenger Locator Form before arrival and inform the authority within 14 days if the residence details change. Anybody arriving from anywhere other than Northern Ireland must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test not older than 72 hours unless exempt. The quarantine restrictions need to be followed unless the journey starts in Northern Ireland. If the traveler arrives from a designated country without being fully vaccinated or having a required negative PCR test, the traveler has to spend the quarantine in a designated hotel. Most arrivals to Ireland are required to spend the quarantine at home or their place of residence. There are only a few exceptions to the quarantine. Some travelers are exempt from quarantine.
