With the lifting of restrictions on non-essential travel under S.I. 217/2021, there is no longer any requirement for Irish residents to have a reasonable excuse to travel to a port or airport for the purposes of leaving the State. Individuals travelling from Ireland are recommended to familiarise themselves with the restrictions in place for their destination. With the evolving epidemiological situation, restrictions on travellers may vary across the EU/EEA area and travellers are advised to check the Re-Open EU website.
