All unnecessary travel is not permitted until at least 5th May. Tourist attractions, restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars, and shops (with the exception of food shops, pharmacies and some other essentials) are currently closed – however there will be a phased opening over the next number of months.
Many restaurants are currently open for delivery and takeaway service only. It is expected that sit-down service in restaurants and cafes, where social distancing can be maintained, will be possible in late June.
It is expected that some museums, galleries, cultural attractions, etc will begin to reopen on 20th July, with social distancing measures still in place.
Stay At Home — there will be plenty of time to visit all of Ireland’s many attractions, pubs, restaurants once this crisis has passed!
