ALL McDonald’s drive-thru restaurants in Ireland to reopen by the end of next week

All McDonald’s drive-thru restaurants in Ireland will open between next Tuesday and Thursday.

McDonald’s has confirmed that all of its drive thru-restaurants in Ireland will reopen by next Thursday (4 June).

The news comes off the back of the fast food giant reopening six drive-thru restaurants in Dublin last week as part of a pilot scheme to implement new health and safety procedures in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Between Tuesday and Thursday next week (2-4 June), an additional 51 McDonald’s restaurants will reopen throughout the Republic of Ireland, as well as 28 in Northern Ireland. The details of which restaurants will reopen on each of those three days will be released on each morning to manage anticipated demand.

Since drive-thru restaurants reopened in Dublin last week, McDonald’s said it had taken the decision to close drive-thru lanes where demand impacted on local communities or the safety of staff or customers.

McDonald’s said it will continue to work with local stakeholders and An Garda Síochána as reopening is extended. Customers have been advised that, with smaller teams of staff over reduced hours, a limited menu will be available.

Customers have also been asked to make contactless payments and limit their spend to €30.

McDonald’s said it will continue to review the new measures as restaurants continue to reopen, but that restrictions will remain in place for now to enable employees, customers and delivery partner couriers to remain safe.
