Northern Ireland - Coronavirus / COVID-19 Updated April 2021

Northern Ireland's vaccination program for COVID-19 is gathering pace, with over 700,000 or close to 50% of the population having had at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

Some restrictions are lifting or easing soon, for instance an opening of many shops and businesses with schools also returning from the 12th of April.

However, tourism remains restricted with Panoramic Ireland's tours unavailable since mid-October 2020. Hotels are not currently open to non-essential guests. Close contact services also remain restricted and only up to ten people from two households can currently meet up outdoors. And from 12/04 there will still be recommendations to "stay local".

This means that, for the moment, Panoramic Ireland's photo tours remain unavailable to book for any period before, at the earliest, June 2021 including at the Giant's Causeway UNESCO World Heritage Site pictured above.

It has been a difficult time for everyone, especially in the tourism sector, but with increasing vaccination I hope to see you soon in Ireland, in my part of the world.

For any enquiries please contact me via the website as I can take provisional bookings for later in the year subject to availability and restrictions being lifted. These reservations are on a no-deposit, no-fee to cancel basis.
