Nine restaurants in Dublin and Kilkenny issued closing orders


The Food Safety Authority issued four Closure Orders and five Prohibition Orders to Dublin and Kilkenny restaurants.

The FSAI ruled that the restaurants were guilty of violating food safety regulations and were not in a position to remain open for business. A Closure Order is served when there is likely to be a bad or immediate danger to public health and can be served on all or some of the property in question. A Prohibition Order is issued if the activities carry a serious risk to public health from a particular product, class, batch or item of food. The aim is to prohibit the sale of the product, either temporarily or permanently.

During the month of November, a successful prosecution was also carried out by the HSE on Kungfu Buffet, Unit 2, Phibsborough Shopping Centre, Phibsborough Road, Phibsborough, Dublin 7.

Here is the full list of restaurants and businesses in violation of FSAI regulations:

Three restaurants and a pork butcher’s shop have been served with closure orders:

  • Legends (take away), 63 George’s Street Upper, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin;
  • Ming Court Restaurant, Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin 15;
  • Pizza House, Kilmacow, Kilkenny;
  • and Brennans’ Pork butcher shop, Dublin Street, Carlow.

In addition, five prohibition orders were served on food businesses for breaches of food safety legislation:
