Ireland: Post Covid Trip

Haven't seen too much posted about Ireland of late; thinking about booking a trip to Dublin & Galway for October time - obviously in the hope we're in a post-Covid world and some domestic travel would be allowed.. how realistic do people think this might be - interested to hear thoughts..

Nobody knows. Just wait and don't make any non-refundable bookings.

I think it would be fine coming from the UK. Americans etc. may need to quarantine.

For an October trip, at this stage I still wouldn't make any non-cancellable bookings until September. There may be a second wave even if travel somewhat resumes during July.

I'm hoping to travel to NI and ROI in June or July but I can insert a work excuse for this travel, nonetheless still not booking anything until a week ahead.

The proposed 14 day quarantine specifically excludes Ireland so, as things stand, the plan looks like a goer. But I wouldn't make any expensive non-refundable bookings!

Transit through Dublin

US passport holder, Landing in Dublin with a couple of hours to connect to Turkey on separate tickets. Will need to actually enter Ireland as there is no sterile connection at the airport. On the way back same situation but will need an overnight at airport hotel. Any issues? Looks like there is quarantine but if you are transiting and can prove it with onward tickets its ok? Any experience would be helpful.

There is a 14 day quarantine period for anyone arriving in Ireland, including Irish nationals and residents returning. However, perhaps you were talking about the travel ban on American residents in the EU. The ban does not apply in Ireland because of the Common Travel area between Britain and Ireland.
