Covid-19 Hotel Information

Thank you for your interest in hampton hotel. 

As you will likely be aware, there are new guidelines and laws governing both travel and work practices in place in Ireland. 

It is important that anyone travelling to Ireland is aware of any restrictions in place before booking. 

Please check here for up-to-date Government travel restrictions and guidelines:  COVID TRAVEL ADVICE



The Irish Government has published a list of countries that someone may travel from, without the need for self-isolation.

Anyone travelling from a country not on that list has to self-isolate / restrict their movements for 14 days upon entry. This is a legal requirement. 


For the health of our employees, their families, and other guests, we reserve the right to not operate as an isolation facility. 

Any guests with bookings that involve travel from a country that is not on the "Green Travel List" will be asked to provide evidence that they have isolated for 14 days prior to the check-in date.

If no evidence can be provided, we will request that the booking be cancelled on health and safety grounds.   

The “Green List” is formulated based on cases per 100,000 of population in the last 14 days, and the Government’s cut-off point for travel access is currently 5 cases per 100,000.

The other guidelines we need to adhere to are as follows:

  • Bars in Ireland cannot operate as bars at present. They must operate as restaurants/bistros, with table service.
  • Guests wishing to order alcohol must order food to the value of €9 or above before being permitted to consume alcohol in any public area. 
  • Hotel residents are permitted to order alcohol to their bedrooms without the need to also order food. 
  • Physical distancing of 2m applies to tables in our Bistro and Terrace areas.
  • Distancing does not apply to people from the same household, 1m will apply between people at a table not from the same household. 
  • It is recommended that a booking is made for any dining establishment. 
  • Contactless payments are encouraged.   
  • Facial covering (mask) is recommended wherever physical distancing of 2m cannot be guaranteed.
  • Facial coverings are mandatory on any public transport and in retail outlets.  



The same advice is echoed everywhere:

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cover your face if you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Keep surfaces clean.
  • Stop shaking hands and hugging.
  • Keep a safe distance: 2m. (Note: Though 6ft is often mentioned as a conversion from metric system, 2m is technically 6.562 feet. It's more a principle.)   

Guidelines have seen updates on average every 2 to 3 weeks, or as required. The guidelines will be applicable as they are on the date of stay, not at the time of booking.     

The official Government position remains that ESSENTIAL TRAVEL ONLY is to take place.
