Freedom of Information

Please note: continuity of Freedom of Information service during COVID-19

To preserve continuity of our Freedom of Information service at this time, please forward any FOI requests to rather than by post until further notice. Our offices are closed and staff are working remotely.

The Freedom of Information Act 2014, enacted on 14 October 2014, provides that every person has the following legal rights:

  • The right to access records held by FOI bodies as defined in the Freedom of Information Act

  • the right to have personal information held on them corrected or updated where such information is incomplete, incorrect or misleading; and

  • the right to be given reasons for decisions taken by public bodies that affect them.

If you would like to exercise one or more of these rights in relation to information that may be held by Fáilte Ireland, please see our guidance on how to make an FOI request. Links to our guidance note and application form can be found on the left hand side of this page.

FOI Publication Scheme

Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires public bodies to publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability, as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11 (3) of the Act.  
Fáilte Ireland’s Publication Scheme below provides a wide range of information about the organisation, which may be useful to members of the public, without having to make a request under the FOI Act. Each section below will bring you to relevant information in that category as well as to links to other relevant information on our website.
