Restaurants and pubs have to wait until next Monday to resume outdoor services.

Hotels and B&Bs can welcome back guests for the first time in more than 5 months from today.

Guesthouses and self-catering accommodation can also reopen, as part of the government's planned easing of restrictions.

General manager of Montenotte Hotel in Cork City, Brian Bowler, says there's a great sense of excitement at being able to reopen today:

Restaurants and pubs have to wait until next Monday to resume outdoor services - and they can't serve indoors until July 5th.

The Restaurants Association of Ireland hopes to begin legal action against the state on Friday.

Chief executive Adrian Cummins says they should be opening in line with hotels today.

The Irish Hotels Federation says more than 30,000 staff will return to work over the summer as a result.

Well known chef and owner of Dunbrody House in Wexford, Kevin Dundon, says it’s an exciting day.

Susan Daly, owner of Daly’s House B&B in Doolin Co.Clare, says there’s every reason to be positive about the summer.
