COVID-19 Travel Advisory 

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade advises against all non-essential travel overseas until further notice. This includes Great Britain but does not apply to Northern Ireland. It also includes all cruise ship travel. 

Those needing to return to Ireland should arrange to do so as soon as possible and without delay, in light of growing reduction and disruption in international travel. For those travelling, please monitor your airline’s website regularly.

Anyone coming into Ireland, apart from Northern Ireland, will be required to restrict their movements on arrival for 14 days. Check the Irish Health Service COVID-19 Advice Page for full information on these requirements. This includes Irish residents. Essential supply chain services such as hauliers, pilots and maritime staff are exempt.
