The Bulman Kinsale in county Cork took to Facebook after President Higgins signed legislation on Wednesday which will allow the hospitality sector to reopen indoors from Monday for fully vaccinated people and those who have recently recovered from the virus.

"It looks like very soon we will have the option to open inside to fully vaccinated people," The Bulman Kinsale penned.

They added that they intend on remaining open only as an "outdoor dining and drink venue until further notice" as many of their younger members of staff have yet to receive a Covid-19 vaccine.

"While our hard working and brilliant young workforce remain unvaccinated we at the Bulman have decided to remain as an outdoor dining and drinks venue until further notice. Thank you," the post continued.

It is expected that time limits for those permitted to eat and drink inside bars and restaurants will be scrapped when they reopen on Monday, however, there will likely be a closing time of 11.30pm.

It has also been reported that unvaccinated children will be allowed to dine with adults as long as their table is situated two metres away from other tables.

Meanwhile, the government is said to be working on an app that will enable pub and restaurant workers to verify if a patron has been vaccinated against or recovered from Covid-19.
