Visit a Prison

The return of physical visits to prison.

What can you bring into a prison

The Irish Prison Service has created a Family Information Booklet to inform you about recent and future changes made in relation to day-to-day activities in our prisons and the impact they have and will have on friends or relatives of yours in our care. As you know, all our lives have changed dramatically over recent months because of the spread of Covid-19. We have experienced the challenges of adhering to the Government restrictions and public health advice over this time. In Section two, Physical Visits in the Family Information Booklet you find information on what you cannot bring into prison.
