You asked, and we answered! There has been a steady flow of guests asking where you can get a Covid-19 test in Galway before travel but fear not, we have made a handy guide to help you out.
At present, many people wishing to venture abroad, or return to their home country, are looking to get a Digital COVID Certificate with proof of a negative PCR test. The usual answer to this question in everyday life in Ireland is to get a PCR test for free with the HSE (The Irish Government Health Service Executive), but unfortunately this will not fly for international travel. For international travel, you will need to get a travel certificate from a private clinic.
It is important to first note that international travel requirements vary from country to country - some countries will require a PCR test and others will accept an Antigen test. Both are available very easily, but you need to be clear on which one you need.
