40% of Irish adults plan fewer visits to pub between now and Christmas

Four in ten Irish adults say they are planning fewer trips to the pub between now and Christmas.

A survey carried out across Ireland and the UK last month, found that 42% of people plan to visit hospitality venues far less often due to the cost of living crisis.

As a response, the Vintners’ Federation of Ireland have called for urgent and substantive energy supports for the pub trade in Budget 2023.

They are warning that while 21% of pubs here have closed since 2005, more will cease operations unless they receive financial backing from the government.
