Thank you for reaching out for more information regarding the state of travel in Ireland! While our airports and ferry ports are open, the authorities in the Republic of Ireland are currently strongly advising against non-essential overseas travel.
While our airports and ferry ports are open, international travel is strongly discouraged. Additionally, all international visitors are required to fill in a passenger locator form
, online before entering the state, as well as to present a negative Covid-19 PCR test taken no longer than 72 hours before departure for the Republic of Ireland
. In addition to this, all international visitors entering the island are requested to restrict their movements for a number of days, 14 for those visiting the Republic of Ireland, as well as some other public health requirements.
Given that you’re only planning to spend three days in Cork, these restrictions may negatively affect your experience. What I would recommend is that you continue to check the official websites, like our traveller health page
, where all of the official updates are provided.
Hopefully, this helps to clarify the situation right now. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Wishing you a lovely weekend,
