COVID-19 Policies

COVID-19 Guidelines

GHR keeps all residents up-to-date with regular correspondence, conveying the latest messages from the HSE (Health Service Executive), WHO (World Health Organisation), DFA (Department of Foreign Affairs), NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland), DES (Department of Education and Skills), and DTTS (Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is vital that all residents (returning and new) take time to very carefully read travel advice issued by our Department of Foreign Affairs. This advice is subject to change and can be found on dfa.ie

Informational literature is distributed to apartments and on notice boards in both blocks and through email newsletters.

Updates on GCD’s COVID-19 activities and measures can be found here.

Book with Confidence

In the event a learner/resident has to cancel their planned study to Ireland due to COVID-19, a full refund (accommodation and application fee) will be issued prior to the lease agreement commencing. This would cover travel restrictions in Ireland or the learner/resident's home country due to COVID-19. If the learner/resident or an immediate member of their family tests positive for COVID-19, close to the learner/resident’s travel date, a full refund (accommodation and application fee) will be extended with evidential proof of a positive test result.

Please note refunds may take 30 days to process.

What Will Quarantine at GHR Entail If Required?

GHR is a shared living environment. Residents who are required to conduct a period of quarantine due to a positive diagnosis or being a close contact are required to do so as a household. Upon learning of a positive case, residents in that apartment will be emailed with helpful information on GHR polices, Government guidelines and best practice. We will also provide antigen tests and face masks, free of charge, when in stock, delivered to the affected apartment. 

GHR is a shared accommodation provider and, therefore, both those in quarantine and those in general living on successful completion of check-in will be housed within apartments comprised predominantly of three or four people.

If you are an existing resident and have COVID-19 concerns, or feel you may have developed symptoms, please email us at both [email protected] and [email protected]. For out of office hours, please contact our security team on 0868182370.

If you have been recently diagnosed and have questions, this information page from the HSE should help.
