All the restrictions being eased in Ireland from today

Restrictions across the country are continuing to ease over the coming weeks, with today being a further milestone in the ending of restrictions which have been prevalent for the past 18 months.

While the use of face coverings, as well as some other minor restrictions, will remain for the foreseeable future, the majority of restrictions will be eased on October 22nd.


Here are the restrictions being eased in Ireland from today – September 20th

  • There will be a phased return to the office, which will continue to expand on a “staggered basis” over the coming weeks.
  • Organised indoor group activities (sports, arts, culture, dance classes) can take place with capacity limits of 100 people (with appropriate protective measures) where all patrons are immune (fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 within the previous six months), or accompanied minors (under 18).
  • Where patrons have mixed immunity status, pods of up to six participants will be permitted (excluding adult leaders/teachers). Multiple pods will be permissible subject to protective measures. The number of pods will have regard to the size of the venue and substantial social distance between individual pods.
  • Restrictions on outdoor group activities will also be removed.
  • The requirement to work from home will be lifted.

It’s now just over one month away until the majority of restrictions will be eased across the country, on October 22nd.
