More than 40% of Dublin pubs plan to reopen as restaurants in June
An estimated 330 pubs in Dublin are planning to reopen as restaurants in June, according to the Licensed Vintners Association (LVA).
Restaurants in Ireland can reopen in June while pubs in Ireland can reopen in August as per the government’s roadmap.
More than 300 pubs, which represent more than 50 percent of the LVA membership, participated in the survey that was conducted by the LVA between May 18 and May 19.
72 percent of the pubs surveyed say they serve food, and 44 percent of those surveyed said they plan to reopen their pub as a restaurant from June 29.
When applied to the approximate 750 pubs in Dublin, this accounts for roughly 330 Dublin pubs planning to reopen from late June.
