Ahead of the June 18th reopening of Ireland West Airport, the facility has issued an update in relation regarding travel:
Commercial flights will resume from Ireland West Airport on June 18th. Ryanair will operate services to London Luton, London Stansted and Liverpool from this date with resumption of further services expected in July.

Passengers who can demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated.
Passengers who present a Digital Covid Certificate based on a test not acceptable for travel purposes in Ireland (eg an antigen test) will be required to present also proof of a negative PCR test taken not more than 72 hours before arrival. Passengers without a Digital Covid Certificate will be required to present proof of a negative PCR test taken not more than 72 hours before arrival.
