BEFORE THE SURGE – DINING OUTDOORS ON CAPEL STREET
This is Capel Street at around mid-day on Friday 16 June 2021 and a few hours later it was crowded but well managed by the restaurants and pubs on the street. I had lunch at Eatokyo before it got busy.
On Monday I received my Digital Travel Certificate and on Thursday I discovered that it could be uploaded to the Track And Trace App which is good because it is almost guaranteed that I will lose the paper version. I am planning to visit Kilkenny for the best part of a week at the end of July and I really do hope that the indoor dining begins by the 26th.
Traffic is banned from Capel Street and Parliament Street from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between June 11 and July 18 to facilitate outdoor dining. I do not know if the ban has been extended but I am assuming that it will be.
