Here are the Covid-19 restrictions being eased in Ireland today

Today marks the further easing of Covid-19 restrictions in Ireland, with the lifting of travel restrictions being the most important.

Ireland is now implementing the EU digital certificate, which means it is now possible to travel to or from anywhere in the EU, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, without having to self-isolate if you have proof of vaccination.


If you have proof you have recovered from Covid-19 within the past six months, no testing or quarantine will be neccessary either.

However, the rules still apply to those who are unvaccinated, requiring them to take a PCR test within 72 hours before travel.

Likewise, passengers entering from the UK and US will no longer have to self-isolate if they have proof of vaccination.


Capacity on public transport is also increasing from 50% to 75%.

A further decision on the return of indoor hospitality is also expected this week from Government.
