McDonald's to reopen six Dublin drive-thrus today

The six restaurants reopening across Dublin have been revealed.

Six McDonald's drive-thrus across Dublin have been reopened after being closed for eight weeks due to Covid-19.


McDonald's drive-thrus in Nutgrove, Kylmore Road, East Wall, Artane, Malahide and Tallaght will reopen from Wednesday onward.

McDonald's says a number of safety and wellbeing measures have been put in place, including;

  • Fewer people in the kitchen and service areas, serving a reduced menu over reduced hours
  • The use of contactless thermometers, with temperatures checked on arrival at work
  • Perspex screens in key locations in the kitchen and service areas

There will also be a capped spend in drive-thrus at €30 per car and customers are being encouraged to pay by contactless payment methods wherever possible.

Customers are being reminded that as these changes are being implemented for the first time, service may take longer than expected.

McDonald’s and its franchisees are also working closely with local authorities and An Garda Síochána, and may determine that it is necessary to close drive-thru lanes, if queues cause disruption at busier sites.

McDonald's is adopting a staged approach to its reopening, with the next stage expected to begin at some point in June.
