The White House has said that, as of now, US President Donald Trump does not plan to visit Ireland around the time of an upcoming trip to the UK.

It has been confirmed that President Trump will visit the UK on Friday 13 July.

Downing Street has said he will hold talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May, and "further details will be set out in due course".

During his St Patrick's Day visit to the White House last month, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that an invitation for President Trump to come to Ireland still stands. 

At the time, Mr Trump told reporters he would like to visit Ireland soon saying he has a property there that he may never get to see again.

Today, a White House spokesperson told RTÉ News that "as of now, there are no plans to visit Ireland."

It is not immediately clear how long Mr Trump’s visit to the UK will last.

He had planned a trip to London to open a new US embassy there but canceled in January.

Following confirmation of President Trump's upcoming visit to the UK, a spokesperson for the Irish Government said: "The President has indicated his desire to visit Ireland at some time during the course of his Presidency.

"There are currently no plans in place for such a visit."
