McDonalds has opened up six drive-thru restaurants in Dublin at Malahide Road, Nutgrove, Kylemore Road, East Wall, Artane and Tallaght.
Before opening time, cars had waited in the carpark of the Malahide Road, Coolock, drive-thru area.
The company is adhering to strict social distancing and safety measures to keep customers and staff free from risk during the pandemic.
Customers are served, as usual at a window hatch. A card reader is lowered out of the window on an extended plastic arm and wire to allow maximum distance from the staff member to customer.
Perspex screens at the hatches allow the staff extra protection and maximum spends of €30 a vehicle have been put in place with customers encouraged to pay by contactless methods.
