SMOKING IS BANNED inside restaurants, but now some business owners are moving to ban it on outside terraces where food is served.

The owners of JoBurger and Metro Café told TheJournal.ie that they haven’t had a lot of complaints from customers about the move.

Smoking is banned in working areas but can be allowed in areas that are not covered by a roof. However, business owners can ban smoking where food is served.
