Fast-food chain McDonald's is to reintroduce dine-in options in 32 of its restaurants nationwide from today.

The move follows a successful pilot at a number of its restaurant, including at its flagship restaurant on Grafton Street in Dublin.

Over the past seven weeks, McDonald's has reopened for takeaway, drive-thru and delivery around the country.

The 32 restaurants reopening their dine-in areas will have a range of new safety measures which will see customers served via table service only. Customers will be able to order directly to their table via the till or kiosk.

McDonald’s will be asking customers that choose to eat-in to leave their contact details for contact tracing by visiting that webpage, with the URL details provided on each table. Customers will be asked to leave the name of the lead member and the number of people within their group, a phone number, the date and time of visit and the restaurant number (identified on each table sticker).

Social distancing measures will also be in place and the restaurants will carefully manage the number of customers inside. 

The reopened dine-in restaurants are as follows:

  • Grafton Street
  • Nutgrove F/S-D/T 
  • Kylemore Road F/S-D/T 
  • Douglas F/S 
  • Galway Retail Park
  • Omnipark 
  • Drogheda
  • Clondalkin
  • Tralee
  • Ilac Shopping Centre
  • Killarney - Park Road
  • Navan - Trimgate Street
  • Monaghan Shopping Centre
  • Castlebar
  • Dundalk Drive-Thru
  • Newbridge Moorefield - The Crescent

  • Crumlin - Ashleaf Centre
  • Lucan Instore
  • Cork 4 - Mallow Road
  • Galway - Westside
  • Midleton

  • Balbriggan Drive-Thru
  • Swords Drive-Thru
  • Dublin Airport DT 
  • Musgrave Park DT 
  • Naas DT

  • Kilcullen MSA

These measures are on top of the existing steps in place to help protect customers, employees and delivery partner couriers

This is the latest phase of McDonald’s reopening plan which aims to expand the dine-in service to further restaurants over the coming weeks.

Customers can check if their local restaurant is open for dine-in by visiting the McDonald’s restaurant locator.
