No live or loud music will be allowed once indoor dining resumes.
Fáilte Ireland has published it's new guidelines for the hospitality sector.
Customers must leave the restaurant or pub by 11.30pm.
While only 6 people are allowed at table, with children under 12 exempt from this.
It's also putting a 105 minute time limit for bookings if there is a metre or less between tables.

The Time Limit Will Be An Issue
Sinn Féin's Imelda Munster is the party spokesperson for Tourism and Media.
She says the time limit will be an issue:
"I think this is going to be a large bone of contention, not just for people in the hospitality industry but for the public itself."
"For weeks now we've been told by the Tánaiste and other Government reps that the €9 substantial meal rule was scrapped."
"That appears to hold fast and that's welcome."
"But we were also told there would be no time limit."
