Covid 19 @ The Gráinne Uaile

Here at The Grainne Uaile we are committed to ensuring the health and safety of all our staff & customers. We have been in regular touch with our Health Inspector, we have trained all our staff on our new operating procedures, and we intend to follow Government and Fáilte Ireland guidelines. To that end, we would like to advise you of the following changes:

  • Where possible we would ask you to book a table or ring ahead. You can contact us at 098 41776, or by Facebook or Instagram. To see our food and drinks menu click here

  • Tables are spaced two metres apart.
  • There will be a one way system in operation to ensure everyone has space to move around safely.
  • Only one person (or family unit) should use the bathroom at any time. Locks have been fitted on the outer door for this purpose.
  • Staff will be wearing face shields for everyone’s protection.
  • All condiments, salt, pepper, menus etc will be cleaned and sanitised after every use.
    They will not be left on the table.
  • Tables will be cleaned and properly sanitised after each group.
