Fáilte Ireland has signed a formal agreement with Enterprise Ireland whereby all tourism businesses can now avail of the supports and services offered by Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) nationwide.
Local Enterprise Offices act as a ‘first stop shop’ for people interested in starting up a new business or already in business including entrepreneurs, early stage promoters, start-ups and small business looking to expand. The LEOs provide advice, information and support in starting up or growing a business, referring interested parties to other agencies where relevant.
With 31 dedicated teams across the Local Authority network in Ireland, Local Enterprise Offices offer a wide range of experience, skills and services including business development advice, mentoring, advice on accessing finance, and guidance on local authority regulations and planning, and other issues affecting your business. Provision of these supports and services may be based on eligibility criteria and will be at the discretion of the Local Enterprise Office.
