Beauty salons, hairdressers and pubs: This is what is reopening on June 29

Leo Varadkar officially confirmed what businesses are reopening in phase three


As the country emerges from lockdown, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has announced an accelerated roadmap for easing restrictions. 

Covid-19 cases have been continually low, so the government has brought forward most businesses set to reopen in phase four to phase three.

From June 29, these are the businesses that may reopen their doors to the public.

Phase three

Travel – The 20km/local county restriction will be lifted and people may travel anywhere in Ireland, while all non-essential overseas travel should be avoided. Passengers arriving from overseas are expected to self-isolate for 14 days until at least July 9.

Education and childcare – All adult education facilities, creches, childminding facilities, pre-schools, summer camps, youth clubs and all indoor and outdoor amenities for children may reopen.

Beauty services – Hairdressers, barbers, nail and brow salons, beauty salons, spas, makeup application services, tanning, tattooing and piercing services may reopen.

Wellbeing services – Chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, reflexology and homoeopathy may resume services.

Remaining businesses – All remaining retail (like bookmakers), services and commercial activities may reopen.

Pubs, restaurants and hotels – Cafés and restaurants providing on premises food and beverages, pubs and hotel bars operating as restaurants, hotels, hostels, caravan parks and holiday parks may reopen.

Driving schools – Driving schools, driving tests, volunteer and other driving services may recommence.

Social gatherings and weddings – Indoor gatherings of up to 50 people and outdoor gatherings of up to 200 people, when conducted in line with public health advice, are permissible. (This means small weddings will be allowed!). And, from July 20, larger weddings will be allowed as gathering restrictions ease to permit 100 indoors and 500 outdoors with social distancing in place.

Culture and religion – Museums, galleries, theatres, concert halls, other cultural outlets, religious buildings and places of worship may reopen (if adhering to social gathering guideline numbers).

Cinemas, music venues and entertainment – Cinemas, music venues (excluding nightclubs and discos), leisure facilities, bingo halls, arcades, skating rinks and amusements parks may reopen.

Sport and gyms – Sporting activities may recommence, including team leagues for adults and children, close contact sports, organised sporting spectator events and fixtures, indoor gyms and exercise facilities, yoga, pilates and dance studios, sports clubs and public swimming pools may reopen as well.

Transport – Tour, event and private bus use, and vehicle hire may recommence. Public transport should be used for essential journeys only, and social distancing is to remain in place with the use of face masks strongly encouraged.

Face coverings are recommended for public transport, retail outlets, and other places where it is difficult to maintain social distancing.
