Consumers are being urged to #BeSound in pubs and restaurants in the coming weeks, as hospitality venues begin to welcome more customers through their doors.

With pubs now open indoors for vaccinated people and those who have recovered from COVID, Drinks Ireland are encouraging people to respect the guidelines, staff and each other while socialising.

Hospitality venues have some mandatory measures, but things can vary from venue to venue. People are being asked to respect the guidelines, by keeping an eye on the signage and following instructions from staff.

Consumers are also asked to respect the staff in these venues who are working hard to make sure everyone has a good time and is kept safe.

“We welcome the further reopening of Ireland’s hospitality sector,” said Patricia Callan, Director of Drinks Ireland.

“Ireland’s pubs are home to the nation’s best loved drinks brands, and we’re delighted to relaunch our #BeSound campaign to encourage positive consumer behaviour when visiting pubs.

“If we all work together, we can help keep each other safe, while ensuring we all have a great time.”

Padraig Cribben, CEO of the Vintners Federation of Ireland, added that pubs across Ireland are delighted to be able to welcome greater numbers of customers back.

“Whether you’re returning to your favourite local, or visiting a pub on a staycation in the coming weeks, remember to respect the guidelines, respect the staff, and respect each other,” he said.
