    Restart Grant Plus for B&Bs

    Now closed to new applications

    As part of the July Jobs Stimulus Package, the Government announced funding of up to €8 million in grants to support B&Bs (Bed and Breakfast) impacted by COVID-19.
    Within this, funding has been allocated to support Bed and Breakfast businesses who do not pay local authority commercial rates under the Restart Grant Plus for B&Bs, and which meet the criteria of a B&B business. 

    A B&B business must provide at least two and no more than six guest bedrooms, none of which must have access through another room. The maximum number of bedrooms in the house shall not exceed nine, including proprietors’ family bedrooms. A B&B must serve breakfast to their guests.

    You may also be eligible to apply for the Restart Grant Plus for B&Bs if your business operates as a B&B-style business with up to fourteen bedrooms; serves a substantial breakfast; has notified the Health Service Executive (HSE) that you operate a Bed & Breakfast and are therefore considered to be a food business; and complies with relevant statutory requirements including Building Control Act for planning requirements and Fire Safety Act, taxation and employment requirements.

    The grant allocation will assist B&B owners with the costs of re-opening and operating their businesses.
