Teeling Whiskey distillery has partially reopened its coffee shop and gift shop in an attempt to prepare to salvage its tourist trade after Covid-19.

Stephen Teeling, co-founder of the distillery and visitor centre in Dublin, said it was trying to pinning its hopes on upcoming dates like Father's Day to reopen its tours and whiskey tasting.

The distillery shut down on March 12, as the Covid-19 pandemic reached Ireland.
