Covid-19 Restrictions on Cruising: Ireland


Status Summary

  1. Can I and my crew get to my boat and back?
    Travellers, including Irish citizens, entering Ireland except from Northern Ireland must complete a Locator form and self isolate for 14 days. Note this has been relaxed for a number of countries on the "green list" but this DOES NOT include the UK (except Northern Ireland) or the USA.

    No requirement to self-isolate on arrival from Ireland to the UK.

  2. Restrictions sailing in-country and cross-border
    Residents can now travel throughout the country and to Ireland’s offshore islands which includes yacht cruising. See the Irish Sailing web page for more details.

    The arrival of personal non-national maritime leisure vessels is banned (with exceptions such as 'port in a storm'). See Overseas Travel.

  3. Social restrictions and requirements (and any special points)
    Ireland is now in Phase 3 of the government’s roadmap for reopening society and business. During Phase 3, most businesses, services and cultural activities can reopen. You are now also allowed to travel throughout the country.
