Seven Dublin businesses were served with food closure orders by the Health Service Executive last month.
That's more than twice the number of food businesses in the capital that were forced to close the previous month.
At the time of writing, four of the Dublin businesses have been allowed to reopen.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has revealed that 21 businesses around the country were served with a food closure order in November - 12 under the FSAI Act, 1998 and nine under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations 2010.
The full list of Irish businesses served with a closure order can be seen on the FSAI website.
