Two popular Dublin nightclubs scrap reopening due to lack of clarity on guidelines

Two popular venues located in Dublin have scrapped their reopening plans citing the government’s “lack of clarity” over current health guidelines.

Krystle nightclub located on Harcourt Street posted on Instagram an hour before the final guidelines were published, which included ticket requirements for entry to venues, that they would not be reopening over the weekend.


They expressed their disappointment through the post while apologising to anyone who was hoping to come to the venue over the weekend.

Joining this popular venue is Dicey’s Garden, who have also expressed discontent towards the government’s guidelines, saying that they are “not clear enough”.

The Irish government has now incorporated a ticketing system for venues, which will require customers to purchase a ticket in order to gain access to the venue.


Late-night hospitality stakeholders have expressed strong opposition to the new rule, stating that it’s a “total betrayal” from the Irish government and “completely unmanageable”.

A statement from Krystle, located in the same building as Dicey’s read; “Unfortunately due lack of clarity and time to prepare safely we will not be opening this weekend. We are really disappointed it has come to this and apologise to everyone who was expecting to come dance with us tonight.”
