Q. What are the Paternity Leave entitlements?

The parent who does not avail of adoptive leave is entitled to statutory Paternity Leave of 2 weeks together with a Paternity Benefit. Health service employees will receive their full normal pay (less any social welfare entitlements, where applicable), for the 2 weeks.

You can continue to receive Paternity Benefit for any period of your paternity leave spent in a country outside of the Republic of Ireland (EU and Non-EU).
