A new sunshine tax could affect Dublin's outdoor cafe culture.

New charges are to be brought in for streetside catering in the city.

Pubs, cafes and restaurants once paid €50 for outdoor tables and chairs but that could increase to as much as €500.

Under new rules, an annual fee of €125 for every table and four chairs is charged - outlets also have to pay a €635 fee for street signage. A further €100 fee is charged for licensing.

Hospitality bodies have warned that these extra charges could damage Dublin's booming 'café culture'.
