More restaurants will open on Friday in Dublin’s CBD, a key demand in the capital’s hospitality sector as the city’s unemployment rate rises and restaurants continue to struggle to fill their waiting lists.
The Corktown Hotel, one of the citys top restaurants, said it had been ordered by Dublin City Council to open for breakfast on Friday, following its successful bid to open on a Friday earlier this year.
It said it was planning to open up its doors at 9am for the first time on Friday.
The hotel has been struggling to keep up with demand, with it having a wait list of almost 2,000 people.
A spokesman for the hotel said: “We are delighted to welcome our new customers to our city with our very own breakfast on a Saturday morning.”
We are hoping to see many more restaurants open in the coming weeks.
“Our customers have come to know us over the last three years and we look forward to working with them in our hospitality endeavours.”
A spokesman from the Corktown hotel said it would be open on Fridays from 9am until 5pm, with food prepared by the local community.
