Guidelines for re-opening hotels and guesthouses

Fáilte Ireland has consulted the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) to develop this set of detailed and practical guidelines to prepare hotels and guesthouses to re-open safely. All of the principles in these guidelines are underpinned by advice made available from the HSA, HSE, FSAI, WHO and other relevant bodies.  

The operational guidelines will be regularly updated in line with Government public health advice as and when this advice evolves.  This includes any further guidance that is given following work by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre & National Public Health Emergency Team on the application of the existing social distancing requirements in specific, defined and controlled environments in the hospitality industry during periods of low incidence of the disease.

Please note, as these guidelines are working documents, you may need to clear your cache to view the latest version.
