Pubs are to see Sunday opening hours extended and nightclubs allowed stay open past 2:30am as part of the reform of licensing laws.
The changes are part of the justice reform plan due to be announced by Minister for Justice Helen McEntee tomorrow.
It will also see new categories for alcohol licences introduced for cultural venues like art galleries and theatres.
The new trading hours for pubs and clubs aim to bring a boost to the sector hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sunday hours will move in line with the rest of the week, with pubs allowed to serve alcohol until 12.30am.
