Thousands of wet pubs outside Dublin have reopened today for the first time in six months

Following a six-month wait due to the Covid-19 pandemic, thousands of wet pubs across the country have reopened their doors.

However, this only applies to wet pubs outside Dublin as the county goes into lockdown due to a surge in Covid-19 cases.

Although reopened, there are still some guidelines that the pubs must follow:

Customers will not be allowed to sit or order at the bar as it will only be table service.

Groups will be limited to six people from three different households whilst maintaining a distance of one metre.

If a distance of two-metres can be maintained, the 105 minute time limit can be waived.

Customer arrival times, contact details and group numbers will have to be recorded, and all customers must be off the premises by 11:30pm.
