The current closing time is 11:30pm for pubs and restaurants. 

Lobby groups are looking for a further easing of indoor dining restrictions this week.

The Restaurants Association of Ireland have made a number of suggestions to the government.

One of those is asking hospitality to extend beyond 11:30pm.

Last orders for most pubs and restaurants is usually in advance of the 11:30pm closing time.

Another suggestion is to allow non-vaccinated people into indoor dining places.

The suggestion for non-vaccinated entries will be once the country hits a certain amount of vaccinated people.

The lobby groups will meet with Government officials to discuss the issues tomorrow.
