Platform 1: Immersive Heritage and Cultural Attractions (2019)

Platform 1: Immersive Heritage and Cultural Attractions (2019) is now closed to applications.

The first Platform for Growth Scheme launched in May 2019, focused on developing Immersive Heritage and Cultural Attractions. These are attractions that appeal to overseas visitors looking for experiences that help them to connect with Ireland and bring the country’s culture, heritage and people to life. 

The scheme, which falls under the Government’s Project Ireland 2040 strategy and supports the development of physical infrastructure, covers the development of major new visitor attractions of scale and the enhancement of existing attractions. 

With upwards of €2.5 million grants available for large-scale visitor attractions, this is the largest investment scheme of its kind to benefit tourism in Ireland.  

Driving growth in the regions through tourism is a core focus of our work at Fáilte Ireland. Having top-class visitor attractions and experiences is an integral part of this mission. We look for every possible opportunity to stimulate and support the development of new attractions throughout the country.

Creating a diverse regional spread of visitors is central to our capital investment strategy, and through the Platforms for Growth Scheme, new attractions across the country will be developed and existing ones transformed.
