The government is aiming to end almost all Covid-19 restrictions by 22 October under plans going to Cabinet today.
The requirement for mask wearing in certain settings will remain, however.
The Cabinet Covid Committee will also recommend that the phased return to the workplace should commence on 20 September, RTÉ News is reporting.
It is also expected that there will be full capacity permitted on public transport from Wednesday.
From 6 September, indoor venues can use up to 60% of its capacity to host events for those who are fully vaccinated.
Outdoor events will see up to 75% capacity permitted for those who are vaccinated.
After-school indoor activities for children, such as dance and drama classes, would be set to resume on 20 September.
The final decision will be taken at a full meeting of Government today
Furthermore, the numbers allowed to attend outdoor sports events will increase from 6 September under the plans.
Ministers are working out the exact capacity increases but it is likely to be up to 50% of a venue’s capacity.
Sources are indicating that the permitted numbers will be different for indoor and outdoor locations.
There will be differences too for crowds that are fully vaccinated.
Communions and confirmations can also resume from 6 September under the plan being drawn up and trade exhibitions can be held from this date onwards too.
Yesterday, Minister for Public Expenditure Michael McGrath said that Covid-19 restrictions will begin to unwind from next week.
He said there will not be a declaration that Covid is over but there will be a “gradual move” from regulations to personal responsibility.
Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly, meanwhile, said the roadmap being announced today will be a detailed and comprehensive plan.
He said there was a lot to be optimistic about but added that he was watching other places with significant increases in cases including Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
