Hello everyone,

My roommate and I wanted to travel to Ireland in March this year. We plan to rent a car and do a Roadtrip from Dublin along the coast to Northern Ireland (Belfast) and further on to Galway and Waterford and back to Dublin. We intend to stay in every city we stop for at least one night (in Dublin and Belfast for longer) and we informed ourselves regarding the current situation with the Corona virus and the entry regulations of the countries. We know we have to get our documents of vaccination and that we need a passport and negative Covid test for Northern Ireland and things like that but we are very confused about the fact if it it even  allowed to travel through the country and change the locations because I readt that there is a document to fill out 72h before departure to Ireland where we have to name an address where we staying for our trip. Does anyone can help me clear my confused mind? I hope you guys get what I want (I'm not a native speaker) and say thanks in advance.

Greetings, 
Julia

Hello Julia, 

It's so nice to hear, that you and your roommate would like to explore our green Island! 

I understand that the restrictions differ from country to country, and that things can get a little confusing. Let me try to help you: 
First, when travelling to Dublin, you will have to fill out the Passenger Locator Form within 72 hours PRIOR to your arrival in Ireland. You will enter the first address where you are staying into the form, and any further accommodation details would need to be addressed in an email directly to passengerlocatorform@plf.ie. Please, also keep proof of all the emails you'll send for your security. Keep also in mind that a PLF can be filled out only for one person.
Currently, vaccinated people with sufficient proof don't need any further testing upon arrival. You can find the official details of the government here
Once you travel to Northern Ireland, you will also need to fill out a PLF within 48 hours before arrival. All details for entry of fully vaccinated people that travel from a non-red list country can be found also on the official government webpage.

I hope, this will help you with the further planning of your road trip! Is there any specific sightseeing you would like to do? We have some information on our webpage around attractions, things to do and places to see. 

Many greetings from the Emerald Isle
Cindy
