A DUBLIN pub has announced it will be opening on good Friday - however alcohol will remain firmly off the menu.

The Palace Bar on Dublin's Fleet Street announced it would be opening to cater for tourists and its customers on the holy day tomorrow.

However the bar will be dry - with Barry's tea, red lemonade and club orange the only beverages on offer.

Customers will also be offered Brennan's bread toasties, Tayto, purple snack bars and cupcakes.

The pub's owner, Willie Aherne, said: "Unfortunately our policy makers have refused to address this outdated policy,where you can't have a drink in the Ireland of 2016 on good Friday.

"You can get a drink in the Vatican/Lourdes tomorrow, or how about the Aviva/Hueston/Connelly station. But not in a restaurant or public house?"
