So how do you determine how far across the county border you can travel?

The creators of which has proved very helpful to people since the first travel restrictions were introduced have updated their website. It now includes clearly marked county boundaries as well as a new 20km from home feature. This allows users to see exactly what is included in a 20km radius from any given point in Ireland.

Those wishing to use the service can simply go to and click on the 20km option.
