Maximum of 1,500 people permitted to dance or stand at live music venues

A maximum of 1,500 people will be permitted to dance or stand at live music venues under the Government’s new guidelines for the hospitality sector.

Under the new regulations, nightclubs will be permitted to operate at full capacity.


People will be permitted to order drinks at the bar again, but patrons will have to bring their drinks back to their tables and will not be permitted to sit at a bar.

Licensing restrictions will return to normal from tomorrow, and nightclubs and late bars will be permitted to reopen.

Face coverings must be worn when leaving a table and staff must wear them at all time while working.


Fáilte Ireland will publish the final guidelines today.

People entering nightclubs must also show proof of the Digital Covid-19 Certificate.

It is understood these current regulations will remain in place until at least February 2022.
