Taoiseach says pubs and hospitality sector could open by June

DUBLIN: The Taoiseach made a promising announcement to pub owners and others in the hospitality sector regarding easing COVID-19 restrictions. Micheal Martin has also hinted that a decision on staycations would be taken. This offer is expected in the coming summer and will give great hope to the entire hospitality sector.

He was speaking at the virtual Hospitality & Tourism Expo. The expo covered issues such as reopening businesses during the pandemic and dealing with a skills shortage in the sectors.

The Taoiseach gave Irish holidaymakers the hope of reopening in June.  Mr. Martin stated that the ministers would look into the possibility of hotels, guest houses, and B&B reopening in June by the end of May.

Mr. Martin also said that once the restrictions are lifted, the government must ensure that the hospitality and tourism sectors have enough skilled workers to recover businesses.

Mark McGowan, President of the Restaurants Association of Ireland, chef and author Darina Allen and economist Jim Power, also spoke at the Expo.

Martin hinted at the possibility of lifting other restrictions in the coming months when he addressed the nation at the end of March. He said he expects the restrictions to be lifted by the summer of 2021. A large portion of the Irish population is holding out hope in the Taoiseach’s words.
