The Bailey Bar & Restaurant in Enniscorthy will open this week to what manager, James Ryan, described as 'a new normal'.

'We will be adhering to all of the guidelines that are in place,' James told this newspaper.

'We will be essentially opening as a restaurant more so than a bar,' he added.

Patrons will be allowed at tables for one-and-three-quarter hours and there will be sanitisation stations as they enter.

'We will be using disposable menus,'said James.

'They will get an A3 sheet when they come in and that will be disposed of when they leave,' he added.

'It will just be a new normal and we all have to get used to it.'

The Bailey will also be using state-of-the-art equipment to spray down the bar twice a day as part of the overall sanitising processes.
