A woman who lives in Ireland but is originally from the United States of America says she is listening out for American accents, amid an ongoing debate on tourists.
There have been increased calls for mandatory quarantine rules here for people arriving from countries such as the US that are still struggling with the coronavirus pandemic.
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has suggested that mandatory quarantine for people arriving in the country "turned out to be a bit of a disaster" in Australia.
While a restaurant in Tralee, Co Kerry turned away two sets of American customers at the weekend who admitted to not self-isolating.
Newstalk reporter Henry McKean spoke to people in Malahide, Co Dublin.
One woman, who is originally from the US but lives in Ireland, said: "I feel like it's irresponsible to be travelling if you're from the States or the UK, where they've got lots of COVID.
"I can see the economic reason for welcoming tourists in, but I just think overall it's a bad idea".
"I was walking in Howth on the weekend and they were loads and loads and loads of people there and I was quite uncomfortable.
"And I was listening out for American accents myself - it hadn't occurred to me that I had one."
Another woman said: "We're due to go to Kerry in two weeks' time and we cancelled our holiday abroad.
"And I find myself worried that maybe - I know I'm doing a boat trip where there's 12 people - and I'm thinking 'Gosh, supposing the others on the boat trip are American tourists - how will I feel?'
"And yet I feel wrong: they could be people that live in Ireland that are on holiday.
But she admitted: "People might be suspicious of us".
One woman said: "I feel strongly about this that we should definitely be a bit more strict.
"I think we're under pressure because businesses will fall and lose business if the flights are not coming in.
"But I think we have to have something more strict where we can have contact available if somebody does come into the country - they have to be checked out, and more thorough than what's happening at the moment".
Thomas Gibney, from Gibney's of Malahide, said: "A lot of tourists coming down from the North more so than anywhere.
"A lot are booking on the app; we do take a lot of walk-ins when we can, we just take their name and number for contact tracing - which is very important".
On the issue of tourists self-isolating, he said: "It's up to them, they have to be honest with themselves and with everyone as well.
"If they have to isolate they have to isolate, it's very hard for us to say to someone if they're - 'have you been isolating: yes or no' - you have to take their word for it.
"If people still want to walk in and get a bowl of soup without an alcoholic drink... they can still walk in and get their lunch and a coffee or tea."
Another man said: "It's on the responsibility of the tourist really to know if they've got any symptoms and the restaurants can't track absolutely everybody, so it's a very difficult thing to balance".
A British man who lives here said: "Speaking to somebody who's just about to emigrate to Dubai, their quarantine was strict when I was over there in March.
"I got stuck there for two months - they hammered down on it really hard.
"When I came back I thought it was a bit lax here, but it seems to be a lot stronger than anywhere else in Europe.
"The show that's going on in America and in England just proves that you do need some kind of good lockdown."
Another man suggested: "I think we should let them in but enforce the two-week quarantine.
"I don't understand why they can't just put them in a hotel, like in New Zealand, that's what they did".
"It's a dangerous one if you start to think people with accents are automatically tourists... if someone has an accent they could be living here their whole life".
A woman who travelled from Co Down in Northern Ireland suggested: "We class it as Ireland, we class it all as one - we're on the same boat, basically.
"There's been no deaths I think in the North these last seven days".
"If you were going over to Galway for a holiday, would you class yourself as a tourist over there?".
Another man said: "There's a responsibility all over the world, and if you spread this [and] we get a second wave, we wipe the economy - we can't take those chances.
"Tourism at the moment is too risky.
"The price of a second or a third wave is enormous - it will take the economy down, and it will take the American economy down and it will take the British economy down.
"So for me it's very clear: tourism should be very far down the agenda when you're moving out of one country and into another: it's madness".
