I have a motorhome and ferry booked for 9th June with the intensions of traveling the Wild Atlantic Way. We have had our 2 vaccinations and live in Wales. What are our chances ?

Hi,

It's great to hear you thinking of visiting Ireland. A trip along the Wild Atlantic Way sounds fantastic!
However, there currently is a self-isolation requirement when arriving to both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Even if you are fully vaccinated, you still have to have a negative (‘not detected’) RT-PCR test for COVID-19 taken in the 72 hours before your arrival in Ireland. You must also complete a period of self-quarantine at home or in the place specified in your passenger locator form. 

As you are traveling in a motorhome, in the Passenger Locator Form you should add the address of the campsite where you will do the self-isolation, while also making the campsite provider aware that you will do so.

These measures can change, so the best way to keep up with these updates and requirements is to visit the Traveler's health article often. 

Let me know if you have more questions,

David

Hey,

Further to what David has said, a trip along the Wild Atlantic Way does sound wonderful!

While the current restrictions may not suit your plans at this exact moment, we are hopeful that things will continue to improve over the coming months. As David highlighted, the Traveller Health article is the best place to stay informed of the latest news about restrictions and travel. Hopefully, you will be able to reschedule your trip in the not-too-distant future.

Regards,
Eoin

Hi 
May I ask some questions regarding to "Even if you are fully vaccinated, you still have to have a negative (‘not detected’) RT-PCR test for COVID-19 taken in the 72 hours before your arrival in Ireland. You must also complete a period of self-quarantine at home or in the place specified in your passenger locator form."?

I'm a student would like to visit Ireland from Poland in early June, same condition that I've got fully vaccinated, just curious that how long is the self-quarantine period? If it's still 14 days, then that's a no trip for me :(

thank you all!

Hi Hao Kai

The self-isolation period is indeed 14 days. Vaccination only is an exemption for the mandatory hotel quarantine, you can find more about this requirement on the government site. Hopefully, things will improve with time and you will be able to visit Ireland soon.

Have a great day,

David

This is such a helpful thread- thank you all. Similarly, I am planning on travelling the WAW for 3 weeks September/October (if possible!) in my off-grid van. Now the rules have changed and quarantine is no longer necessary for those fully vaxxed from GB (as I am). But we do still need to complete a passenger locator form. I wondered if anyone had any knowledge or advice about doing this for someone not planning on staying in campsites. Would you suggest I stay one night in a campsite to put this as the address? Or be clear on the form that I will be moving around.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hi Sage,

I know that this is a question many are having and unfortunately at this point, it's not possible to give you a clear answer. Like with Daniel on this thread, we advised that people in your case should contact the Irish Government through this email address - passengerlocatorform@plf.ie - for more clarity.

I recommend that you keep an eye on Daniel's thread above as he mentioned that he will come back with information following his own query about the possibility of providing GPS coordinates.

Best regards,
Eoin
