People who arrive into Ireland from Britain will still have to self-isolate.
The Government says it has 'no plans' to change those regulations for now, despite the UK relaxing rules on people who arrive from Ireland and France.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says his government is introducing a requirement of 14 days of self-isolation for international arrivals, but that the UK would continue to 'respect our common travel area with Ireland'.
However, an Irish Government spokesperson confirmed anyone who arrives into the Republic from abroad will have to complete a form and self-isolate, regardless of where they departed.
Anyone who travels from Northern Ireland is exempt from the self-isolation guidelines.
Meanwhile, a Northern Irish journalist says he faced an onslaught of 'anti-British bile' after tweeting that people from Britain should consider Ireland as a holiday destination once restrictions begin to be eased.
Euronews political editor Darren McCaffrey has since deleted the tweet - which featured a picture of the Giant's Causeway - after receiving 'an awful lot of abuse'.
Speaking on The Hard Shoulder, Mr McCaffrey explained: “I did say this is not the time for a holiday: nobody would suggest it is. But at some point it will be time for a holiday, and I think some people are quite looking forward to it at some stage.
“Why not potentially come to Ireland if you haven’t been there before?
“There were clearly people who thought it wasn’t the right time to talk about holidays - to a degree that is understandable. But at some point countries have to turn to thinking about how to recover the economy."
Mr McCaffrey said the responses to his tweet included "anti-British bile and Brit bashing".
He observed: "I would have thought, given the fact that the tourism and travel industry will be trying to take baby steps back to recovery, that trying to welcome your nearest neighbour... would be a good thing."
