Hi!
We are planning on going to Ireland soon. Our plan was to simply travel to Dublin, rent a car and then drive thru the island for 9 days, staying where we enjoy the area and don't book hotels in advance to have some freedom deciding where we want to go next or stay longer/shorter than planned in some areas... Now I saw on the website of the Irish government that you'll have to provide an address where you're staying during your time in Ireland. Is a roadtrip as we planned it, even possible then?

Or could we either
-book hotels in advance and give information about multiple places of stay on the passenger locator form
-have to stay in one place during our whole trip because traveling around the country is not possible...

I hope someone can help me with this, i searched what felt like the whole internet and I'm still lost...

Hello Isabelle, 

That sounds like you have a lovely trip planned there. Do you already have some places in mind that you would like to visit during your road trip? On this page you can find some general information about driving in Ireland that might be useful.

As for your question with the Passenger Locator Form (PLF), you can simply fill in the address of the first hotel/accommodation where you will be staying on the original form. You should then keep emailing all updates and changes to the following email address: passengerlocatorform@plf.ie (You might not get a reply to your emails actually, so it's best to make sure to keep a copy of your email saved as a proof.)

I hope this answers your question? If you need any other help with your travel planning or some ideas for stops along the way, please do not hesitate to reach out - in German or in English (which ever you prefer). 

Have a nice day, 
Sarah

Dear Sarah!
Thank you for your quick reply, this helps us a lot! So I simply Email them, telling them we moved on from our first location and will be staying in another one (giving them the new address of course) from now on, even if we would f.e. change locations daily, without any problems when leaving the country again?

Hi Isabelle,

thanks for getting back to us!

Correct. Once you have moved on from your first location (you provided on the Passenger Locator Form) you will send all the addresses and details per email to the address Sarah provided you. Please, keep in mind that the PLF has to be sent off 72 hours before arrival in Ireland earliest. We also have a useful page with details to the current travel situation and restrictions.

In addition, as we currently live in times of different circumstances, we would advise you to book your accommodations in advance to prevent any disappointments. You can find a variety of places on our Homepage

We hope you'll have a fantastic stay, filled with little adventures and wonderful moments! ☘️

Have a lovely day,
Cindy
