    To think 2019 downwards you could actually plan a night out unrestricted and no way was any of this current affairs in our thoughts

    Our neighbours in the UK back to 2019 times and loving life

    Not quite. There are strikes on the London Underground for the next 2-3 weekends 😖



  • Registered Users Posts: 31,730 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    So here we are once again, hospitality been a target and will now be only allowed operate till 8pm each night (last orders 7.15-7.30)

    Suppose places that do a decent day trade will be OK and with it been the holidays places might be busy enough up . January could be a bleak month for places especially with very little sport on

    No way NPHET will agree to let hold of its grip for the 31st Jan

    Spot on, but the vintners themselves have to protest the VFI and LVA to make them more accountable in denouncing this crap. If they're not and happy to suckle the €1k per week shut up money, I can't blame them - but that lolly will soon expire too.

    The vintner's association have proven themselves completely useless as a representative body during all this, but what do you expect them to do? "Open pubs or we'll ______________?" Fill in the blanks for me....

    It was really nice of the Netherlands, Denmark and Wales to help Tony conduct his evil plan.

    Evil grip. Sick of reading tin foil hat stuff like this tbh.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,547 ✭✭✭ mightyreds


    Problem with these threads is above not once did the lad say evil grip but someone will come along and add to it to make it sound worse than it is to try slag him off, then all of a sudden it's been blown out to what you wrote.



  • Registered Users Posts: 330 ✭✭ vafankillar


    just realized, there's nothing stopping pubs from doing some take-away pints even if they have to get people out by 8pm

    Having the 8pm rule until at least February means that a lot of companies that might have opted to postpone until the new-year have simply cancelled. As for the day trade a lot of that would have been tourists, but I am in no doubt that a lot of them will have been cancelling in droves as well.

    Update: O'Neill's, the sort of place I would expect to cater for the daytime/tourist trade, has shut up shop.

    Probably not the correct forum but does anyone know what the deal is with Hotels? If your a resident does the 8pm curfew come into affect?



  • Registered Users Posts: 61 ✭✭ Tony Manero


    From gov.ie

    Measures will come into effect from 20 December (midnight on Sunday night):

    • All restaurants, bars and cafes, excluding take-away or delivery services, will close at 8pm. This will also apply to hotel restaurants and bars, except for overnight residents

    So the answer to your question is no it doesn`t.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,267 ✭✭✭ ShamNNspace


    Residents bar till 11.30 we were told there for a hotel in Ennis we're stayin on 31st dec

    So can a pub stay open till it’s normal time and sell drinks for takeaway? A pub near me has a big outdoor seating area near the pub, it’s also a shop, so technically could he sell drinks in the pub for takeaway and people drink them in the covered outdoor area adjacent to the shop?



  • Registered Users Posts: 632 ✭✭✭ morphy87


    Listening to the commissioner on crime call, he was asked about this and he said premises were very compliant, I reckon out the county unless a complaint comes in pubs won’t be too strict on this

    your right they have been treated disgracefully the last 20 months



  • Registered Users Posts: 330 ✭✭ vafankillar


    it probably could, tho there is supposed a rule of being at least 100m away from the premises to drink it, never saw many pubs letting people actually sit in outside areas, most had groups huddled a bit away or seating on a nearby bench



  • Registered Users Posts: 31,730 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    going to be a fun week with NPHET basically making the decision

    No reason why place can't open normal times from next Monday 24th but this is a NPHET Government after all and logic is not a strong point



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,547 ✭✭✭ mightyreds


    I dont like the way it mentions, whats the difference between 8 and 10 closing, should be back to normal trading hours

    Tony says people have enough drank by 10pm, time to go home then. also he you to just go for dinner and 1 glass of wine, then home.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,465 ✭✭✭ saabsaab


    Back to normal hours very soon. Cases expected to drop like a stone.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,522 ✭✭✭ Dickie10


    is anybody else feel they could be instutionalised by all this? i actually can t help but feel seriously anxious that we actually are not going to get free, r else it will be just temporary til late summer when restrictions come back. my head is melted, i cant actually comprehend normal life again.what the fuccck is going on.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,887 ✭✭✭ hynesie08


    No, not even remotely.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,131 ✭✭✭ bokale


    Nah. Sure we've always had silly rules with alcohol here.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,513 ✭✭✭ PommieBast


    Wouldn't surprise me. This 8pm curfew and how it was bought in at very short notice vindicated my decision to move from Dublin to London.
