Outdoor Seating & Accessories for Tourism & Hospitality Business Scheme


Individual tourism and hospitality businesses can avail of the new €17m Outdoor Dining Scheme in partnership with local authorities. The Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme will  be delivered in partnership between Fáilte Ireland and Local Authorities across the country.

The focus of this scheme is to provide a level of financial support to tourism and hospitality businesses, in our town centres, to purchase or upgrade equipment to provide additional outdoor seating and, therefore, increase their outdoor dining capacity for the summer of 2021.

This scheme will financially assist and support independent tourism and hospitality business owners to create outdoor dining experiences in a regulated and accessible manner. Funding under the scheme is only available to existing businesses.

The scheme will be open from the 12/4/2021 for applications & will close on the 30/9/2021. For more information, see here.
