Current rules for indoor dining

Indoor service in bars and restaurants has reopened.

To access indoor service, you must show proof that you are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 6 months. Children under 18 who are dining with you do not need proof of vaccination or recovery.

You can use an EU COVID Digital Certificate (DCC) or a HSE vaccination record as proof. You need to have identification to show that the proof of vaccination or recovery belongs to you.

Proof of immunity and identification

  • Student card

  • Garda age card

  • Irish Residence Permit (IRP)
