Passengers arriving into Ireland from EU/EEA and the USA

From 19 July, subject to the prevailing public health situation, Ireland will operate the EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC) for travel originating within the EU/EEA and the USA.

A Certificate will show if a passenger:

  • is vaccinated against COVID-19;
  • has recovered from COVID-19; or
  • has a negative test result

Passengers arriving into Ireland with a certificate will not have to undergo quarantine.

However, passengers with a certificate based on a non-PCR test (for example, antigen), or those arriving without a certificate, will require proof of a negative RT-PCR test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival. Children aged between 7 and 18 who have not been vaccinated must also have a negative PCR test.

A passenger who has been in a non-EU/EEA country in the 14 days prior to arrival into Ireland will be subject to the rules applying to that country (see below).

All passengers will be advised to observe public health restrictions and to present for post-arrival testing if they develop symptoms of COVID-19.

We are currently planning many itineraries for 2021 and 2022, if you are thinking about Ireland for your dream trip we strongly suggest that you get in touch as soon as possible to begin planning.

We look forward to welcoming guests to Ireland in the near future.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch and make a new booking, you can do so with utmost confidence and maximum flexibility.

  • For any new trip booked with us for travel with us from July 19th 2021, if it then becomes necessary to amend the dates, clients may transfer bookings free of charge to any alternate future date. We will not charge any amendment fees.

  • For previously postponed bookings - Please note that it may be necessary to adjust the cost of your trip to reflect the new dates, if those dates coincide with any festivals, events or a higher season of travel. Equally, if the value of your postponed trip is less than your original trip, we will reduce the cost accordingly. There may be some availability issues as we rework your travel plans and as before we almost always have a selection of wonderful alternate properties and we will send for your review and approval prior to reconfirming your trip.
