A new Outdoor Dining Scheme, supported by Fáilte Ireland in partnership with local authorities, is now open for applications.

The Scheme will help food and hospitality businesses to increase their dining and seating capacity in the short-term by providing 75% funding of up to €4,000 towards the cost of outdoor furniture and equipment.

The grant is available to all individual tourism and hospitality businesses to develop and increase their own outdoor seating capacity whether on private premises or in the public realm. Applications can be made for furniture purchased since April 1st 2020, and the scheme will be open for applications until September 30th 2021.

All the terms and conditions, along with the online application form, can be accessed here.
