In light of government health guidelines, The Spotted Dog in Dundalk will close for the foreseeable future while they figure out how to reopen safely.

Another restaurant has fallen victim to coronavirus as it runs rampant in our communities. The Spotted Dog in Dundalk, known for their use of local produce and support of local suppliers, has unfortunately had to shut their doors after a team member tested positive on an antigen. The staff took the necessary precautions by shutting early, and apologised on Instagram to those with reservations.

The caption states:

We are taking all precautions & will reopen after a deep clean and once all our staff are tested & clear.”

The Spotted Dog is just one of many restaurants around the country that has been forced to close. While the hospitality sector is still open, with significant rules and restrictions, many are finding it almost impossible to trade properly, with the 8pm curfew, and staff shortages. The Dundalk restaurant thanked all their loyal customers for their “amazing support” throughout the pandemic.

We hope to see The Spotted Dog open again in early 2022.
