Our #TogetherAgain campaign illustrates the work done in hospitality venues, with support from the drinks industry, to welcome customers back safely.

With some venues with outdoor spaces now open, and ahead of wider reopening, our campaign highlights the craic and connections waiting for consumers as they return to venues, while being reassured that they will be kept safe.

We have created a video series involving some well known drinks brands and venues exploring how the drinks industry has worked closely with pubs throughout Ireland to ensure they were and are ready for a safe and sustainable opening.


#TogetherAgain video series / Explore

At the most salient of times we go behind the scenes of The Palace Bar in Dublin City as part of our #TogetherAgain campaign. Described by Irish poet and novelist James Kavanagh as the “most wonderful temple of art”, join us as we meet Willie Ahern and speak to him about the reopening of this historic bar which has been in his family for generations.

With the support of his colleagues in the hospitality industry and drinks suppliers he believes he is ready for a full reopening, as is the case for the majority of the bars of Ireland.

The latest addition to our #TogetherAgain video series goes behind the scenes of the Guinness Raising the Bar initiative. As the Covid pandemic continued and hospitality venues remained closed, Guinness saw a need to remain connected with hospitality workers and help them ensure they were ready when the pubs of Ireland finally reopened.

Learn how this important initiative provided much need practical training and invaluable inspiration to the hospitality professionals of Ireland.

 

 

Our first video as part of the #TogetherAgain series goes behind the scenes of The Porterhouse Brewery Co in North Dublin and Porterhouse Central on Grafton Street. In the early days of Covid the drinks industry was quick to make contact with their customers and arrange for the collection and safe disposal of kegged product.

As the pubs of Ireland open once again we learn about how the drinks industry continues to be an important ally to the hospitality sector.
