The details of the visit have not yet been announced. However several news outlets including NewsTalk, have speculated that the couple may travel to Dublin and Cork.

In 2011, HRH Queen Elizabeth II visited Ireland. She was the first British monarch to come to Ireland on an official visit in 100 years. During her four-day visit, in May 2011, she visited Dublin and Cork, including the English Market. 

While Queen Elizabeth's visit to Ireland was a historic event her son, Prince Charles and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall are regular visitors, with their last trip in May 2019. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also paid a two-day visit to Ireland in July 2018. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge earlier this year, Feb 27 to 28, visited Northern Ireland, stopping off at Belfast, Fermanagh, and Ballymena. The aim of their trip was to celebrate the young people of Northern Ireland.

It is likely that their schedule in Ireland will not be released before the trip due to security concerns.
