HSE COVID-19 test centres

You do not need an appointment or a referral to get a free COVID-19 (coronavirus) test at a HSE COVID-19 test centre. You can book online or go to a test centre during opening hours for walk-ins.

Tests are limited to 1 test per person. If you think you need a repeat test or you are worried about any symptoms of COVID-19, talk to your GP.

Book a COVID-19 test online

You can only book online for yourself. You can only book a time slot up to the end of the following day.

You can show up without an appointment, but you may not have to wait as long if you book online.

Who can get a test

You can get a test if you:

  • are aged 16 years or more
  • live in the same area as the walk-in test centre
  • have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 9 months - only get another test if you have symptoms of COVID-19

Do not bring a child to a walk-in centre if they are a close contact in a school setting. The contact tracing team will arrange the test and will contact you with the details.

What you need to bring

You need to bring photo ID and provide a mobile phone number.

Test results

You will get your test result by text message. Airlines will not accept this for travel. If you need a letter for travel, you need to have a negative PCR test from a private company. They will give you the letter you need to travel.
