Sumary of Ireland travel: Do UK travellers need a vaccine passport to go to bars and restaurants?:
- Legislation to allow fully vaccinated people to eat and drink in indoor venues recently passed all stages of the Oireachtas (Irish parliament).
- Currently only outdoor hospitality venues are open, but the reopening of indoor hospitality settings, such as bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes, is planned for 26 July.
- Ireland residents can show either paper documentation or their EU digital Covid certificate as proof in order to access indoor hospitality settings.
- Irish Tourism Minister Catherine Martin has previously indicated that official UK proof of vaccination will be acceptable for indoor hospitality purposes – preferably alongside other proof of identity, such as a driving licence.
- The Irish government recommends that face coverings are worn in crowded workplaces, places of worship and in busy or crowded outdoor spaces where there is “significant congregation”.
- There is no limit on the number of people who can gather together indoors if they are all fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19 in the last nine months.
