Ireland is now welcoming visitors from the UK who have a valid proof of vaccination. For people that are fully vaccinated no travel related testing or quarantine is necessary.

You may be asked to show proof of your vaccination status during your holiday. You can obtain proof via the NHS App, which you can download. We also recommend that you obtain a paper copy either online or by telephoning 119. Please allow plenty of time before your departure date to obtain your certificate.

You must also fill in a form online before you arrive in Ireland called the COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form. You must fill in this form within 72 hours before you arrive into Ireland from overseas. Print off the confirmation and take with you.

Getting to Ireland - The car ferries sail several times a day from the ports of Pembroke, Fishguard, Holyhead, Liverpool (Birkenhead) and the southern ports of Scotland - they remain the most popular because you can simply load the car with everything and head off. Flying is certainly for the birds when it comes to fishing. The huge penalties imposed by the so-called 'low cost' airlines for extra luggage are unbelievably high and make it impossible to travel with luggage and coarse or sea angling kit.

Stena Line have the widest choice of routes, sailing from Holyhead, Fishguard, and Cairnryan, with a variety of conventional ferries. Irish Ferries concentrate on sailings from Holyhead and Pembroke with conventional car ferries and a fast craft (Swift) from Holyhead to Dublin. Stena Line now operates between Liverpool (Birkenhead) and Belfast with huge vessels that carry a mix of freight and car passengers. En-suite cabins are included in the cost on night crossings. There is also a day-time ferry. Meals can be purchased on board. 


Please note ferry companies are carrying out increased security checks and we require all passengers full names and dates of birth in order to make a ferry booking. Vehicle details are also required (make, model, registration number, height and length of vehicle).

Telephone to order your bait at least a week before arrival.
Telephone: 00353 49 9526258 or mobile 00353 8777 24029 (Catherine).

Northern Ireland Rod Licences

From April 2016, anglers will no longer get a paper rod licence or permit. Instead, they will get an electronic record (e-record) with a unique reference number. The new system will work out what type of licence or permit is needed.

See the following link to buy your licence on-line

Travelling to Ireland

Passports: There is no requirement for Irish and British citizens to carry passports when travelling within the Common Travel Area. However, many air and sea carriers require some form of identification and some carriers regard a passport as the only valid identification. Immigration authorities may also require you to have valid official photo-identification, which shows your nationality.

Driving: UK visitors to Ireland - there is no reason that you will not be able to drive in Ireland with your existing driving licence. You will not be required to carry an International Driving Permit with you, just ensure to carry your UK driving licence with you.
Since 1 January 2021 a certificate called a ‘Green Card’ (which is issued by your UK insurer, and proves that the vehicle is insured) will be required for vehicles from the UK, including Northern Ireland.

Pets: Each pet travelling, or returning, from Great Britain to Ireland must be microchipped and vaccinated against rabies. You must wait 21 days from the date of the rabies vaccination before travelling. Dogs will require treatment for tapeworm by a vet 1 to 5 days before arrival in Ireland.
Pets must travel with a health certificate issued by a UK official vet. EU pet passports issued by Northern Ireland will remain valid but an EU pet passport that was issued in GB will not be valid for travel to the EU even it was issued before January 2021.
A health certificate is required before each entry into the EU.

You should contact your vet as soon as possible prior to travel (at least one month) to arrange for your health certificate and relevant vaccinations.

Mobile phones: All operators must make customers well aware of any roaming charges they could incur. If you have any concerns or you wish to check, you should contact your provider directly.

Taking food into Ireland:

You cannot take the following food products with you:
• meat or products containing meat
• milk or dairy products (There are some exceptions, for example certain amounts of powdered infant milk, infant food, or pet food required for medical reasons).

You cannot take the following unless you pay to have them inspected before you leave and get a ‘phytosanitary certificate’:
• fresh fruit (apart from bananas, coconuts, dates, pineapples and durians)
• vegetables
• plants and plant products
