Covid-19 Restrictions on Cruising: Ireland


Status Summary

The absolute ban on the arrival of non-national leisure vessels has now gone. Advice from the Maritime Strategy and Governance Division of the Department of Transport is to follow the guidance on Marine Travel Restrictions.(see link below). So although there is a theoretical way of arriving in Ireland legally, it would depend finding a harbour or marina which would allow you to self isolate for the requisite period of time and, if you wanted to take advantage of the self release after a 6 day Covid test, you would have to find a way of taking such a test which looks problematic as it appears that you would not be able to leave the boat.
