Non-smoking pubs and bars

A friend of mine visited Ireland about 2-3 years ago and told me that they were changing the law to ban smoking in pubs and bars in Ireland. Is that the case? Are the pubs and bars non-smoking?

1. Re: Non-smoking pubs and bars

Since march 2004 smoking is prohibited in any enclosed workplace including bars and restaurants. Most bars have some sort of a terrace or other open area for smoking but in a lot of cases it requires standing outside on the street!

the ban has been a huge success and has had a surprisingly smooth transition.
