Restaurants and pubs won't have to make customers buy a €9 substantial meal to get a pint when outdoor dining resumes.
Outdoor hospitality in the Republic is set to return after the June bank holiday weekend.
The Tanaiste has also confirmed that customers won't have limited time to eat or drink.
Restaurants and pubs are still waiting on formal advice from Fáilte Ireland.
Leo Varadkar has also said that hospitality businesses don't have to limit the number of customers they can facilitate at one time to 15.
Speaking at an Oireachtas Committee he did say that it will be seated only with a metre, or a metre and half between tables.
Tables can have no more than 6 people at a table, but they can come from any number of households.
