My family and I have a trip fully booked for Ireland.  Arriving in Dublin on April 1st and leaving April the 9th.  My family nor I are afraid of COVID as a disease, but we are nervous about the hoops to jump through to get back into the US and the consequences of getting COVID.  With the rise in COVID cases over the past week, it makes the chances of a member of the family (although we are all fully-vaccinated along with the booster) catching COVID and then we are stuck in Ireland according to the current US entry rules.  
What is everyone's current feeling about travelling to Ireland during this time?  Would practicing past COVID protocols (mask wearing in public places, frequent hand washing, and social distancing) be enough to reasonably feel safe enough or not?   We would really love to come to Ireland, but just want to make sure we are doing the smart thing.

Shawn,

I understand the worry as traveling will always have unknown but from experience on traveling and living on the island, I will say that the key is to stay aware.

We can see that the habits taken over the last years haven't fully gone away. You will often still find hand sanitiser in public spaces, pubs, and restaurants still offering outdoor services/pods...
I'm now back to the gym, Pubs...  and I feel more confident as I'm still mindful and aware of how to limit the risk - handwashing distancing...

Loads of things you can do or will visit are also outdoor, minimising the risk.
I hope this helps but my main advice would be to do what is comfortable to you.

Brady.
