Taoiseach confirms indoor dining will return for vaccinated people next Monday

An Taoiseach has confirmed that indoor hospitality will reopen for bars and restaurants on Monday, July 26th.

The legislation for the return of indoor hospitality was passed in both the Dáil and the Seanad, and today President Michael D. Higgins signed it into law.


The final guidelines for the reopening were agreed by Government and representatives from the hospitality industry yesterday.

There will be no time limit on people dining, but premises will be required to close by 11:30pm.

A digital Covid Certificate reader app will be used by hospitality businesses, and diners must scan their Covid Certificate before entry.


It currently remains unclear as to when Government will move to Phase two of indoor dining, which will allow people who are unvaccinated to dine with a negative PCR test.
