Helping development of quality visitor experiences

Large Grants Scheme

Large Grants Scheme

Fáilte Ireland developed a grants scheme for large tourism capital projects in 2016 to create new or enhance existing tourism experiences and attractions across Ireland.  
Projects were awarded funding based on their potential to boost overseas visitor growth, create jobs and support our destination brands:  

We created a two-stage application process to enable Fáilte Ireland and project promoters to work together to develop and shape the project before incurring major expenditure and committing public funding to the delivery of the project.

Under the scheme, capital grants in excess of €200k and up to a maximum of €5 million were available, with funding awarded to some projects that were successful at both stages of the application process.

We continue to work with projects that were awarded funding under this scheme, from public, private and voluntary sectors across the country. 

These projects were awarded Stage 2 funding and are either in delivery or have been completed.
