Selling alcohol

Date:

Northern Ireland Easter licensing hours

Guide

Over Easter, the times you can sell alcohol on licensed premises in Northern Ireland are now the same as the rest of the year. Prior to 2022, there were some additional licensing hours restrictions over the Easter period. 

Licensed premises include businesses such as bars, restaurants, hotels and theatres who hold a licence to sell alcohol or ‘liquor licence’. Alcohol may normally be sold from 11:30 to 23:00, or on Sundays from 12:30 to 22:00. 

Some licensed premises have a ‘late licence’ that normally allows them to sell alcohol as late as 01:00 or with further additional permitted hours until 02:00, instead of the usual limit of 23:00.
