The Irish Government has ended almost all Covid-19 public health restrictions. Restaurants and bars can resume normal trading hours; and restrictions on indoor and outdoor events, including sporting fixtures, have been lifted.
Tourism Ireland says it is looking forward to rolling out the green carpet to international visitors following the country’s adoption of the EU’s new Digital Covid Certificate.
This will enable more seamless travel among EU member states. Ireland will begin the scheme on 19 July, meaning that travellers from EU member states bearing the pass – which attests that the holder has either been vaccinated, has had a negative test for Covid-19 or has had the virus – will then be able to visit Ireland without the need for a test or quarantining.
