We will post updates here on the impact in Ireland, and on visitors to Ireland, of the Covid-19 pandemic. At present (middle of April 2022), all restrictions on everyday interactions have been lifted. Businesses and services are operating fully. The wearing of face coverings continues to be recommended in busy indoor environments including public transport, retail and university classrooms, but is no longer mandatory (except in very specific settings such as hospitals). Nevertheless, the country continues to experience a moderate rate of infections and caution is generally advised.

Detailed up-to-date advice on covid-related requirements for international travel to Ireland can be found at the Government of Ireland website. At present no certification of vaccination or recovery is required for entry to Ireland (this could change, and the link above has official up to date information).

For participants who require a negative Covid-19 test for travel to another country after the conference, tests for travel purposes are provided in Galway (and at Dublin Airport) by an agency called Randox. Details of how to make an appointment and the wait time for test results can be found at their website.
