Here are all of the restrictions easing today as Ireland continues reopening

A very exciting day for the country.

There has been a lot of excitement this week as the long-awaited return of outdoor dining is set to reopen from today (7 June).


A number of other restrictions across the country are also set to begin easing this week, so here is a full breakdown of what you can expect to be able to do from today.

The numbers permitted at organised outdoor events can increase to a maximum of 100 for the majority of venues, with a maximum of 200 for outdoor venues with a minimum accredited capacity of 5,000.

Cinemas and theatres can also reopen the doors after a very long closure, and drive-in cinema and drive-in bingo once again resume.

There will also be the partial reopening of driver theory test services.

In terms of indoor visits to private homes, visitors from one other household are permitted for unvaccinated households.

The number of guests attending wedding celebrations or receptions can increase to 25.

Outdoor sports matches can recommence and gyms, swimming pools, and leisure centres can reopen for individual training only.


Outdoor services in restaurants and bars can recommence and outdoor theme parks and funfairs can reopen.

Swimming lessons and classes can also once again take place.

A number of trial events are also set to begin across Ireland over the coming months, starting with a James Vincent McMorrow and Sorcha Richardson concert at the Iveagh Gardens on 10 June. 

500 people will be allowed to attend the trial concert and a number of trial gigs and sporting events will continue through the month.
