Here’s how indoor dining will return for vaccinated and recovered people in Ireland

Cabinet has yesterday signed off on legislation for the phased reopening of indoor hospitality.

The legislation needed for the sector to reopen will be required to pass through the Dáil and the Seanad this week.


The legislation, which allows only vaccinated and recovered people access, will be active until October 9th.

Any extension after October 9th will have to be approved by the Dáil and Seanad.

The legislation is expected to come into force from next week, or by the week after.


The EU Digital Green Certificate will be used as a so-called ‘indoor dining pass’, which must be presented upon entry.

Children will also be allowed to access indoor hospitality, as long as they are accompanied by vaccinated adults.

People will be permitted to remain in an indoor hospitality setting for one hour and 45 minutes.

A fine of €2,500 could be issued to anyone who forges a document to gain entry, or for businesses who do not comply with regulations.
