As someone from a country not on the Green List I'd be required to restrict my movements for 14 days after entering Ireland. All sources seem to assume one would stay with relatives or friends, yet I have no such acquaintances in Ireland but would benefit from being in the country for viewing rental properties as I'm starting on a job there in October (albeit likely only after two weeks of not being able to do anything, basically).
Which places could I therefore stay at in this time? Are hotels or hostels open and do they accept guests required to restrict their movements in the first place? Would short-stay rentals be a viable alternative? Are there any other options?
