Under Level 5, garages are allowed to repair cars. My nearest main dealer (for a newish car) is in a different county, more than 5km away. Am I allowed to travel for a prearranged appointment?

Kind of, yes. You are specifically allowed to breach the 5km limit to ’shop for essentials’ and it could, we suppose, be argued that making sure your car is in good running order, in case of emergencies, falls into that category. It’s a matter of interpretation though, so don’t quote us to any Gardai who happen to pull you over...
