This should be really easy to find out but it’s not, I’ve Googled this a lot. If travelling from England to the republic Of Ireland. Flying to dublin. Is it a requirement to quarantine? September 2020

You would have to quarantine for 2 weeks on arrival in Ireland, but not when you get back to the UK.

I’ve been to Ireland twice since June - had to stay put in my parents house for 2 weeks before I could come back to London! Filled in a passenger tracing sheet at Dublin airport - on arrival back in London walked straight out and onto the train and came home - didn’t fill in any sort of track and trace info and didn’t have to isolate.

I believe Northern Ireland is not the same as it’s in the U.K. so if you flew to Belfast you don’t have to isolate.

Quarantining for 14 days in Ireland is 'requested', it is not legally enforced.

This is true @IcedPurple nobody checked when I went back to the airport today to London - nobody called to check while I was In Ireland... I know of people who’ve popped back for a few days then returned to U.K.!
however it’s similar to the Rules in U.K. for when you come back from Spain or whatever - nobody checks nor is it properly enforced - but you are supposed to isolate for 2 weeks!

Will airlines check your return date?

No, airlines will not check return dates. You don't have to stay in Ireland for 14 days but if you are staying for just a few days you would be required to restrict movements for all of your trip.

Aren't there more cases in Ireland than the UK now (percentage wise)? I was talking to my mum about this today, she wants to go to Ireland, but I said we can't at the moment but then I wondered if the restrictions had been lifted. Obviously not.

It is 14 days quarantine on arrival in the Irish Republic, which dates from a point where cases per million were much lower in ROI than in the UK. They definitely aren't now, so it seems a bit pointless (Irish person who would actually like to be able to see her family at some point grin)....but it also feels like a dick move to just ignore it or travel via Belfast
