Tim Kennelly Solicitors have considerable experience acting for hoteliers, publicans, restaurateurs and night club owners. The licensing code in Ireland is complex and it is very important that any business which is involved with the sale of alcohol, be familiar with the legal requirements which affect them.

The issues might range from such matters as permitted opening hours and obligations in relation to under-age drinking, to the purchase of licensed premises such as a hotel, pub or off-licence, an application for a new licence or an extension to an existing licensed premises.

We offer practical guidance and advice for:

  • Hotels
  • Public BarsĀ 
  • Off-licences
  • Restaurants
  • Night Clubs
  • Special Exemptions
  • Transfers
  • Hotel or Public Bar extensions
  • Objections
