COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Unprecedented efforts are under way to limit the spread of COVID-19 on the island of Ireland. Tourism Ireland is closely monitoring the situation.

The authorities in the Republic of Ireland are currently advising against all non-essential travel, for the time being. Visitors arriving in the Republic of Ireland are required to complete a public health Passenger Locator Form and self-isolate for 14 days; the mandatory self-isolation for travellers arriving in Ireland is in place until further notice.

For Northern Ireland, no self-isolation is required for visitors from low to medium risk countries; this list can be found here.

If you’re concerned about how the situation will affect your travel plans, we recommend that you check with your airline, tour operator, cruise line or transport and accommodation providers.

We suggest that tourism businesses on the island of Ireland looking for information about coronavirus and its impact on travel go to the relevant sections on the websites of Fáilte Ireland and Tourism NI. Up-to-date information and guidance on COVID-19 in Northern Ireland can be found on the website of the official Public Health Agency Northern Ireland. Information and support in the Republic of Ireland can be found on the website of the Health Service Executive.
