Good news!! The recent trend seems to be for some easing of restrictions.
The link reports (per Reuters) that Ireland is dropping most Covid restrictions like restricted hours and vaccine requirements for pubs and restaurants. They dropped the test requirement for entering the country a couple of weeks back (edit -- for vaccinated travelers). Apparently this is based on reduced infections following a big increase in boosters.
Good news for those of us planning trips this spring. Hopefully the virus will cooperate.
Hmm. Seems a bit too soon. I'm supposed to travel to Ireland in May. Might have to rethink that.
We are planning a trip to Ireland with RS the end of April, I've been watching this closely. There are some caveats even for vaccinated travelers, there is a timeline of 270 days for the vaccination. Because I work in health care my vaccine dates and even my booster date will be close to the 270 days so for now we are planning on testing before we leave just to make sure. But things may change again before we leave. Go to the Irelands website to see the details.
