Pubs, restaurants and hotel are now able to have live music once again.

Performances will be allowed outdoors after guidelines were updated today.

It follows advice from the Attorney General that came after Katherine Zappone's Merrion Hotel function.

Following the outdoor event, the AG said regulations do provide for organised outdoor events and gatherings up to 200 people.

The Failte Ireland guidelines now state that musicians should play at least 2 metres away from customers.

Meanwhile, gatherings of up to 200 people for social reasons are allowed in outdoor settings at the likes of pubs, restaurants and hotels.

Customers can also book multiple tables - but intermingling between them is not allowed.

Pubs, restaurants and hotels will still have to close at 11:30pm.

The Vintners’ Federation of Ireland has welcomed the publication of new Failte Ireland rguidelines.

Its CEO Padraig Cribben says it's "clear we’re moving towards a full reopening of society and it’s now only a matter of time before all restrictions in pubs such as mandatory table service and the ban on people sitting at bar counters are removed.”
