News & Local Business Business Update | Covid19

18 Mar 2020

Don't know where to start... so much to say.

We have a truly unprecedented situation here in Ireland and worldwide as we all fight together against the threat of this virus.

We will leave the medical advice to the experts and ask that you pay close attention to the advice that's on offer and try to ignore the unverified stuff.

In local business news:

  • Nolan's Supermarket has issued a new protocol for shopping that takes effect immediately. See below notice.
  • Harry Byrne's, The Sheds and Pebble Beach and the Yacht have closed their doors on Sunday. This was followed swiftly by a Government announcement asking all publicans to close pubs by Sunday night.
    • We believe that most of the sit-down restaurants have moved to deliver/takeaway only. We can deffo confirm this for KinaraLaCosta remains open for business with a strict policy on keeping distance in the takeaway and of course, delivery services remain.
  • Clontarf Wines has also issued a protocol for visiting the shop. They are also providing the option to order online and have your items delivered.
  • Stylish Guy Menswear is currently offering 20% off everything online. It's the perfect time to buy that present for later in the year! 
  • Marlowe's Cleaners have updated their opening hours to open Monday - Saturday, 9 AM to 4 PM. It should be noted that washing clothes regularly is important to stop the spread and the solvents in the dry cleaning process are effective.

See the statements below from local businesses for more info.
