Ireland's hospitality sector will be required to adhere to six weeks of increased COVID-19-related restrictions from midnight on Wednesday October 21 due to the implementation of level five of the government's Living with COVID plan.
Food, Drink And Accommodation Venue Restrictions
For the duration of the level five restrictions period, all wet pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés in the Republic will only be permitted to provide takeaway and delivery services, and hotel, guesthouses and other accommodation venues will only be permitted to provide accommodation for essential non-social and non-tourist purposes.
Social Gathering, Wedding And Cultural Attraction Restrictions
Additionally, large social gatherings will not be permitted to take place, although weddings can still take place, but no more than 25 guests will be permitted to attend ceremonies and receptions, and museums, galleries and all other cultural attractions will be required to remain closed throughout the six week period.
