The time limit for indoor dining is set to return when the hospitality sector fully reopens.
It’s one of a number of guidelines set to be issued by Fáilte Ireland this afternoon.
These new guidelines are expected to state that people can eat or drink for as long as they like outdoors but there will be a one hour and 45 minute limit indoors.
Tables will have to be one metre apart both indoor and outdoors. The €9 substantial meal rule is also set to be scrapped.
Good ventilation is also set to form part of the measures.

Outdoor dining resumes June 7th while hotels can open June 2nd.
The Government is set to announce on Friday when indoor dining resumes
