The very stunning nation of Ireland is opening up, albeit gradually, for tourists. It has lifted the restriction of 14-day quarantine for people from 15 countries for now; nations that are allowed entry for now include Hungary, Italy, Malta, Finland, Norway, Greece, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Slovakia, San Marino, Greenland, Gibraltar, and Monaco. Restrictions on Asian countries and the USA is still in place as expected since a number of them are battling a major outbreak of the Coronavirus.

Ireland has been a tourists’ favourite, with Dublin’s very fine brews as just the perfect start. It is one of the best places to travel, and had to place several restrictions on travellers’ movement in the wake of the pandemic.

Ireland lifts arrival for 15 countries; mulling over restrictions for hotspots

Foreign Minister Simon Coveney stated, “The message is still clear, the safest thing to do is not to take your holidays abroad, look after your family, spend your money at home and holiday at home.” He also stated that the government is considering more options other than the 14-day quarantine for countries or regions within some countries that might become COVID-19 hotspots.

Currently, Ireland boasts of the lowest rate of infections in all European Union (EU) countries with only five cases per 100000 people over the past fortnight.
