Discrimination on the ‘religion ground’ happens where there is less favourable treatment of one person compared to another person because one has a different religious belief, background or outlook from the other, or that one has a religious belief, background or outlook and the other has not.

Pubs, as licenced premises selling alcohol, cannot discriminate on any of the nine specified grounds (Age, Civil Status, Disability, Family Status, Gender, Membership of the Traveller Community, Race, Religion, Sexual Orientation) with respect to entry or service provision under the Equal Status Acts.

Ní féidir le teach tábhairne diúltú duit teacht isteach mar gur ball thú de ghrúpa áirithe a chlúdaítear sa dlí, nó mar go bhfuil tú i gcomhluadar duine dá leithéid, nó mar go gceapann an fhoireann gur duine dá leithéid thú.

Tá dhá bhealach le gearán a dhéanamh faoi idirdhealú tithe tábhairne.
