I spoke to my Irish family earlier, they are rural and they said that you wouldn’t want to visit at the moment anyhow, people are not going out much and non local people get stared at like they have two heads! Made me feel better about not visiting and made me laugh. The cows are fine though, all is well 😊

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

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.

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.

Will airlines check your return date?

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!

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

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.

Really? How does that work for Ni?

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

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
