Thanks for joining in the thread about your plans to visit.
You would be correct in assuming that a Level 2
situation would be one where things would be as near normal for visitors wishing to travel around the island of Ireland as was the case last summer. We are, however, a long way away from reducing our current level 5 restrictions down to level 2 certainly in time for late June this year.
All passengers arriving on the island of Ireland are required to have a negative/’not detected’ result from a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test carried out no more than 72 hours prior to arrival even after receiving the vaccine so this has no bearing on visiting currently but please keep an eye on our website travel health
page as well as the Irish government's GOV.ie
Transiting through Dublin would require the negative PCR test but as long as you are leaving the state directly, you do not need to quarantine. However, you still need to fill in the passenger locator
form before arrival if staying more than 24 hours and quarantine or if leaving the state, certain sections only.
The authorities in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are currently strongly advising against non-essential overseas travel such as tourism and while a big loss to the economy, our top priority is to keep our visitors and our residents safe and well.
As Eoin mentioned, things are improving here on the island of Ireland and we very much look forward to having our many visitors back with us.
