Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme Fund


Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme Fund

Outdoor Dining Scheme

The Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme will be delivered in partnership between Fáilte Ireland and Local Authorities across the country. The Scheme will provide funding for individual tourism and hospitality businesses to develop and increase their own outdoor seating capacity. 

The scheme opens for applications on 12 April 2021 and will close on the 30th of September, 2021.  

This Scheme is designed to enable individual tourism and hospitality businesses to increase their dining and seating capacity in the short-term and secondly to enable a long-term strategy for local authorities to develop appropriate permanent weatherproofed outdoor dining infrastructure.

The aim is to support jobs and businesses and to transform appropriate outdoor spaces while providing much needed assistance to those who have been impacted most heavily by recent Covid 19 closures.

This funding announcement further strengthens this Government’s and Meath County Council's commitment to the development of our towns and business as outlined in the ‘Our Rural Future’ plan.
