On top of this, it is said that, while in the Republic of Ireland, the US President may make day trips to Louth and Mayo where he has family connections.
As previously reported, Biden's arrival is set to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Good Friday Agreement, an event that the American President is believed to be keen to mark.
Given his Irish roots, President Biden is a strong supporter of the Emerald Isle, with the 80-year-old having stood firm next to the Republic in the recent Brexit negotiations with the United Kingdom.
