Grants Scheme for Large Tourism Projects

Posted in Connect on June 29, 2016.

A Grant Scheme for Large Tourism Projects (for capital grants above €200,000) has just been launched by Fáilte Ireland. This Grants Scheme falls under Fáilte Ireland’s Tourism Investment Strategy [pdf, 4mb],  in respect of which an amount of up to €65m in total grants is available over the period 2016-2020.

The scheme sets out to encourage innovation to support the long-term sustainable development of tourism across Ireland. In order to facilitate innovation, the scheme takes an outcome led approach to financial support, rather than being prescriptive in terms of the types of projects eligible for funding. A two-stage application process has been introduced which will allow for effective communication between Fáilte Ireland and project applicants early in the project development process.
