Entry Into the State

Non EEA nationals are required to seek leave to enter the State by reporting to an Immigration Officer at an Irish port of entry. The onus is on the individual to have all documentation relating to their reasons for entering Ireland for presentation to the Immigration Officer to gain entry. The Immigration Officer may grant leave to enter to a maximum period of three months. They may, depending on the documentation presented grant a lesser period that three month.

Should the non EEA national wish to remain in the State beyond the period granted by an Immigration Officer on arrival in the State, they will be required to obtain the permission of the Minister for Justice and Equality.
This can be done by reporting to their local Immigration Officer which is located at the Superintendent's Office, An Garda Síochána (Police) in the District in which you reside.
In the Dublin area you must report to;

The Garda National Immigration Bureau,
13/14 Burgh Quay,
Dublin 2.

Visa Required nationals who enter the State on foot of a C Visit Visa cannot have their permission to remain in the State extended. They must leave and reapply from outside the State should they wish to return.
