As from 31 December 2020, all counties will be at LEVEL 5 upto 5 April 2021 at which time the situation will be reviewed by the Government, based on the status of the virus and public health advice.

We cannot accept bookings arriving between 31 December 2020 to 5 April 2021 unless “essential non-social and non-tourist purposes”.

The Irish government has announced several new rules for overseas travellers arriving to Ireland in a bid to reduce non-essential travel into and out of the country, including from and to Northern Ireland, and slow the spread of COVID-19.

As reported by The Irish Times, the new rules for overseas travellers arriving to Ireland include criminal sanctions and compulsory quarantine for incoming travellers who fail to produce a negative PCR test.
