    The Grants Scheme for Large Tourism Projects 2016 to 2020 is currently closed for applications. When a date for re-opening of the Scheme is announced, we will recommence the provision of pre-application meetings with intending future applicants.

    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 to 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.

    We hope to be able to advise on the next funding round in due course, along with information on the Grants Scheme for Small Tourism Projects. In the meantime, if you wish to be notified when grant schemes are being announced, please send an email to capital@failteireland.ie
