Updated October 8 

Many Dublin pubs and restaurants have closed their doors for three weeks after the Government announcement that the capital is moving to level 3 of Covid-19 restrictions.

Until October 9, pubs and restaurants in Dublin are under strict new orders not to allow indoor dining and to only offer outdoor dining to a maximum of 15 people at one time. Takeaway and delivery services are still allowed but the news still came as a blow to an industry that has had the most tumultuous of years due to Covid-19 restrictions and the number of changes to planned reopening dates.

After Friday evening's announcement by Taoiseach Micheál Martin, many Dublin pubs and restaurants were quick to update the public on their situation. Below you'll find the status of a number of the capital's favourite spots. Be sure to bookmark this page as we update it over the coming days and if there are any we've missed, feel free to get in touch.

Sprezzatura - Open with heated outdoor seating

As One - Open for takeaway and click and collect

‘Don’t ever lose hope as better days will come’ ⛅️ We are trying to be brave here in Cornucopia about today’s announcement that we will be limited to takeaway only for at least three weeks.. We are also devastated and scared for our business we love and need so much. It reminds us to be gentle with one another during this time. Everyone has their own personal struggles which are heightened during this time of uncertainty. We will be open this Saturday 10.30am - 7pm, and Sunday 11 - 5pm serving food and drinks to go! We are on Deliveroo and will be launching our frozen meal delivery service ASAP. If you are in the city check out our new shop and support us in anyway you can. We will get through this 💚 Lots of love, stay safe and well from all of us in Cornucopia xxx

****Customer Notice****** It is with great regret that we must close our doors for the next three weeks. We understand we must do this to hopefully slow the spread of covid 19 in our great City but are obviously devastated for our staff and customers. We have contacted our resevstions this weekend and will be in touch with all reservations to hopefully re book you in at a later date. We have been lucky to have been able to operate over the last two months and our team of dedicated , loyal and hard working staff have made that possible. Thank you to all that have visited over that time , your support is absolutely vital and very much appreciated. We are down but not out , we will be back soon and in the meantime stay safe , wash your hands , wear a mask and we will see you all real soon. Thank you .
