It's good to hear that you are travelling to Ireland next month. I hope that you have a great time.
You do not need a COVID-19 test before arriving in Ireland if any of the following applies to you:
- You have an EU Digital COVID Certificate that shows you are fully vaccinated
- You have an EU Digital COVID Certificate that shows you have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 180 days
- You are aged 11 or under
- You have another acceptable proof that you are fully vaccinated with an EMA-approved vaccine, or that you have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 180 days
If none of the above applies to you, you must have a negative RT-PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before your arrival in Ireland.
Please note that from today, February 1st, a new travel rule
has come into effect which states that COVID-19 vaccine certificates for primary vaccination series will not be accepted for travel if more than 270 days (approx. 9 months) have passed since the final dose in the primary vaccine series. Vaccine certificates based on booster/additional doses are not time-limited.
I hope this information is helpful.
