About

The Licensing Acts: The Lawyer’s Synopsis is the third handbook in The Essential 21st Century Guide series.

The Licensing Acts: The Lawyer’s Synopsis provides the reader with a succinct update on the general provisions governing alcohol (and other relevant) licences in Ireland.  It details jurisdictional and procedural requirements with regard to all licensed premises within this jurisdiction including pubs, hotels, holiday camps, off-licences, premises licensed to manufacture and sell by wholesale and retail spirits and beer manufactured on the premises, restaurants and wine bars or indeed any premises licensed to sell alcohol.

Trading hours are discussed, as are offences and endorsements and temporary closure orders.

The rights and obligations of licensees in respect of different types of licensed premises are summarised, as is the jurisdiction of the appropriate court in the grant and renewal of such licences, orders and certificates.

The different categories of licences are discussed; those statutory provisions creating such licences and imposing restrictions and/or conditions are also dealt with.

The general jurisdiction of both the Circuit Court and the District Court is dealt with, as is recent licensing legislation to include the Public Health (Alcohol) Act 2018 and the Intoxicating Liquor (Breweries and Distilleries) Act 2018.
