New nightclub regulations will take effect from tomorrow in Ireland

New regulations for nightclubs in Ireland will be signed into law tonight and will take effect from tomorrow.

The Government has told representatives from the nightlife industry that the ticket system must be in place by tomorrow, despite representatives calling for a two week grace period.


Representatives wanted a two week grace period to allow nightclubs implement an effective system for digital tickets to be sold.

However, Government officials confirmed today that there will be no delay and the regulations will take effect immediately.

Digital tickets will be required to be purchased at least one hour before entry.


Ticket holders will only be permitted to congregate outside nightclubs, to avoid overcrowding.

People will be required to present their Digital Covid-19 Certificate upon entry, as well as photo identification.
