Pubs will be able to open on Good Friday after a bill lifting the restriction was approved by the Dáil this afternoon.
The move which will come into affect from today onwards will now mean all alcohol products can be sold this Good Friday which is on March 30th.
The ban was first introduced in 1927 as part of a broader legislative act which further prohibited the sale of alcohol on Christmas Day and St Patrick's Day.
Introducing the bill, Minister of State David Stanton said removing the ban will help tourism and he said that the demographic in Ireland has changed and increased in diversity.
A spokesperson for The Windsor on Dublin Street, says they have to abide by the laws and if everyone else opens on Good Friday, they will too.
Donal O'Keeffe of the Licensed Vintners' Association told Today FM's Last Word programme that they are delighted Good Friday will now be treated as a "regular Friday".
He said: "Tourism makes a much greater contribution to our economy and this is particularly true during holidays, such as the busy Easter period".
"The extra day's trade at such a busy time of year will be a welcome boost".
Having now passed through both the Seanad and Dáil Eireann, the legislation will now move through the Áras to be signed into law next week - and will then take immediate effect.
In the Dáil, Independent TD Maureen O'Sullivan said the bill was contradicting a policy of attempting to reduce the harm caused by alcohol.
