Pubs will open on Good Friday for the first time in 91 years today.
The ban on alcohol being sold was lifted earlier this year.
It's thought the removal of the ban will boost the number of tourists coming here over the Easter weekend.
The Vintners Federation of Ireland says the pub sector has lost out on 40 million euro because of the restriction.
Their CEO, Padraig Cribben, says Good Friday will soon become like any other Friday "that's what we wanted it to be - just like a normal Friday - every other business could trade, and there was no reason why the pubs couldn't trade as well".
Some pubs in the capital are already open for business:
