Extra Holiday Will Help Hospitality

Hotels will benefit from the decision to designate March 18 of this year as a Bank Holiday under a new proposal agreed by Government.Brigid
The holiday will be a once-off national commemorative event, dedicated to healthcare workers and those who have lost their lives during the pandemic. It will create a new ‘long weekend’ running from Thursday to Sunday, providing an opportunity for hotels to offer inclusive packages. Restaurants and bars are also likely to benefit.
Announcing the new public holiday, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said the holiday would be ‘a day of remembrance and recognition’.
The March 18 event is separate from the additional bank holiday set to be added to the calendar from next year.

That holiday will take place sometime in early February around the date of St Brigid’s Day.
The St Brigid's Day holiday, the first to be named for a woman, also marks Imbolc, the ancient pagan festival which in ancient times was seen as a period where there is a return to life and Celtic new year. All four Celtic seasonal festivals will now be public holidays.
