We will review the situation after 30 May 2022. We are open to all residents on the island of Ireland. We are following strict HSE guidelines. All residents are required to send a clear antigen test 24 hours prior to arrival to email@example.com. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our overseas residents, and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to us again, hopefully later in the year. read more
