Book Your Trip to the Emerald Isle! Ireland Just Lifted Its Travel Restrictions


The Cliffs of Moher are calling and it’s time you answered. On March 6, the Republic of Ireland lifted border restrictions for all international travelers. This means you’re no longer required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test, fill out a passenger locator form, or quarantine upon arrival.

“I’ve just signed the regulations removing the COVID requirements for incoming international passengers,” tweeted Stephen Donnelly, Ireland’s minister for health. “Another step forward in our COVID efforts.”

The Emerald Isle joins a list of other European countries that have lifted all border restrictions, including Iceland, Hungary, Norway, and Slovenia.

In addition to removing border restrictions, the Irish government has also lifted its mask mandate, making it voluntary. The government does, however, still advise that you wear a mask on public transportation and in healthcare settings.

Ireland is currently reporting between 4,000 – 5,000 COVID cases per day, with 75% of the population fully vaccinated.

If you’re looking to visit Northern Ireland while on the island, the Northern Ireland government asks that you take a rapid lateral flow device test (LFD) and only travel if your test result is negative.
