At least 14 pubs have closed for good in Dublin due to Covid-19 restrictions, according to the Licensed Vintners Association.
It says "there's no doubt" a lot more have also met a similar fate across the country.
The Licensed Vintners Association says 17% of licensed premises in Ireland are still closed, including late bars and nightclubs.
Pubs partially reopened in July as part of the gradual reopening of the hospitality sector.
CEO of the LVA, Donal O'Keeffe, says the full damage to the sector won't be known until all restrictions ease on October 22nd
"17% nationally are still closed. I think the 22nd of October becomes the magic date to know who's staying closed permanently and who's reopening.
There is no doubt that nationally and including in Dublin that there are pubs that will not reopen. In our world we are aware of 14 pubs that are now gone for good and I've no doubt around the country there's lots."
