Travel To Dublin

Ireland is Open for Visitors

Unprecedented efforts are under way to safeguard public health and limit the spread of COVID-19 on the island of Ireland. The ICP 2022 Organising Committee continues to monitor the situation closely and our planning towards an in-person Colloquium in June 2022.

From the 19th of July 2021, the Republic of Ireland is operating the EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC) for travel originating within the EU/EEA. Ireland will also be welcoming visitors from Great Britain or North America who have valid proof of vaccination (with an EMA-approved vaccine) or have valid proof of recovery from COVID-19 in the last 180 days. Different rules apply for arrivals from outside the EEA. More information can be found here

Before arriving in Ireland, you must complete a Passenger Locator Form. The form will be checked before your departure to Ireland – by your airline or ferry company – and you may be asked to show your vaccination certificate. Upon arrival in Ireland, spot checks will be carried out on proof of vaccinations and/or negative RT-PCR tests.

Dublin - The Capital City of Ireland


Dublin is Ireland’s capital city and was founded by the Vikings in 841. The city is steeped in history and buzzing with energy. Medieval, Georgian and modern architecture provides a backdrop to a friendly cosmopolitan city. 

Dublin is a thriving centre for culture and is home to a great musical and literary tradition, its native sons include Shaw, Yeats, Joyce, Wilde and Beckett
The city’s attractions include castles, museums, art galleries, pubs and cafes. Within half an hour of the city are mountain walks, stately homes and gardens, numerous golf courses, sandy beaches and fishing villages.
A bustling city with a population of over 1.7 million and home to over 100 different nationalities all of whom contribute to the fabric of Dublin. While it has a genuine cosmopolitan feel, Dublin has still managed to retain its own distinct culture which is expressed in a love of literature, drama, traditional music and sport. The quintessential Dublin Pub provides the focal point of Dublin’s social life, illuminating the vibrant hues of Dubliners and their culture. Conversation flows freely unleashing the unique atmosphere that defines the city.
Dublin is one of the oldest cities in Europe and with ancient churches, grand buildings and fine museums, cultural riches abound. From the ancient to the avant-garde, from history, architecture, literature, art and archaeology to the performing arts Dublin has it, with the real advantage to the visitor being that everything is contained within a small area.
When the conference business is over, there is a wealth of activities and culture for you to explore.
