Thanks for the question!
There have been some recent changes to the current travel and public health guidelines. To keep up to date as you try to make plans, we'd suggest keeping an eye on our own Traveler's Health
Page for all official resources and links to current information.
The 5-day antigen testing
is indeed the home-style testing that is being advised for visitors to take during their first 5 days here in the Republic of Ireland. This is to highlight the possibility that even though you may be vaccinated and have a negative test result prior to arrival, you may still become positive and therefore need to self-isolate ahead of taking the PCR test.
All visitors are also required to fill in the passenger locator form
within the 72 hours prior to arrival, with their vaccination, recovery, or negative test status.
Where will you be coming from before you join us here on the island of Ireland?
