McDonald’s suspend dine-in and takeaway in Dublin restaurants

by Rachel Darcy

McDonald’s outlets across Dublin – and Ireland – have shut their doors for dine-in and takeaway services amid the latest Government advice.

The popular fast food outlet will remain open, however, for drive-thru and delivery services through Just Eat and Uber Eats.

A spokesperson for McDonald’s said they will also ‘review and reassess’ their safety measures as Covid-19 cases continue to surge throughout Ireland.

A McDonald’s representative said: “As per the Irish Government’s current guidance, all of our drive thru’s will remain open and we will continue to provide a delivery service for our customers. 

“Our dine-in and walk-in takeaway services will be temporarily unavailable while we take time to review and reassess our safety procedures with an independent health and safety body.  

“This is a temporary change in our operations to allow us to test and validate any additional measures that may enhance the safety of our takeaway service. 

“We will continue to keep customers updated via our social media channels and our website.”

Further measures are expected to be announced by Government today, which are said to include further restrictions to retail, travel and schools.
