Ireland will soon be easing its border restrictions and welcoming American travelers.
Currently, according to the US embassy in Ireland, Americans who want to travel to Ireland need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours before their arrival and undergo quarantine for 14 days.
Starting July 19, vaccinated travelers will be allowed to travel freely around Ireland without the need to take a COVID-19 test or quarantine. Unvaccinated travelers will need to show the results of a negative PCR test and quarantine until they obtain the result of a second test.
“If we continue to mind each other, if we continue to make the right choices, the end of this is within our grasp,” Prime Minister Micheál Martin said in a televised address.
Ireland is one of the many countries opening its doors to vaccinated travelers this summer. Restaurants and bars in Ireland will open up for indoor dining on July 5. Arts and sports events will resume indoors and outdoors on the same day, but with restrictions on attendance.
