Fáilte Ireland helps to support tourism industry growth in Ireland through the investment strategy, which underpins all our investment in tourism capital projects, including all grant schemes and strategic partnerships.

This investment fund, administered by Fáilte Ireland, supports tourism capital investment projects and initiatives by both the public and private sectors and helps them tap into the potential Ireland has as a world-class tourism destination.

Through this strategy, we aim to deliver genuinely innovative projects that will transform visitor experiences for Ireland’s target markets while supporting jobs in the industry and protecting our natural environment.
