Getting to Ireland - Ferries sail several times a day from the UK. Stena Line have the widest choice of routes, sailing from Holyhead, Fishguard, and Cairnryan, with a variety of conventional ferries. They also offer sailings from Liverpool (Birkenhead) and Belfast with huge vessels that carry a mix of freight and car passengers. Irish Ferries concentrate on sailings from Holyhead and Pembroke with conventional car ferries and a fast craft (Swift) from Holyhead to Dublin.

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).

Travel rules - 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.

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: Check with your provider direct about any roaming charges you may incur.

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
