‘Outdoor Seating & Accessories for Tourism & Hospitality Business’ Scheme




Monaghan County Council has been directed by Failte Ireland to make an addendum to the guidelines for The Outdoor Seating and Accessories for Tourism and Hospitality Business.


Due to the global demand for outdoor seating and accessories, in some instances suppliers are unable to complete orders until January 2022. In these ‘exceptional circumstances’ applicants can still apply under the scheme and will receive their grants once goods are delivered and they can provide proof of delivery and images of the furniture in-situ.

Applicants need to apply for the scheme prior to the closing date which has now been extended to 8th October 2021 enclosing the quotes for goods, delivery dates from the suppliers and will still need to be compliant with all regulatory and planning requirements.

The ‘Outdoor Seating & Accessories for Tourism & Hospitality Business’ scheme is being delivered in partnership between Fáilte Ireland and Local Authorities across the country. The Scheme provides funding for individual tourism and hospitality businesses and pubs to develop and increase their own outdoor seating capacity for the summer of 2021. Funding under the scheme is only available to existing businesses.

The scheme is open to attractions, hotels, restaurants, cafes, public houses or other tourism and hospitality business establishments where food is sold for consumption on the premises. Eligibility is dependent on commercial rates due in respect of premises having been paid for the period up to 31st December 2019 or a payment plan being in place with the Local Authority.

The scheme will provide for up to 75% of the ex-VAT cost of equipment purchased/installed with a maximum allowable contribution of up to €4,000 per applicant.

Expenditure incurred on upgrades to outdoor dining spaces including but not limited to; tables, chairs, umbrellas, electric heaters, screens/windbreaks, plant stands, wooden platforms, etc. are considered eligible for the scheme. Construction related expenditure is not eligible. All applicants will be required to comply with planning codes, legislative requirements and other compliance requirements.

Expenditure must be incurred between 1st April 2020 and 8th October 2021 and payment will be made by Local Authorities to approved applicants on submission of receipts and photography of furniture in situ.

Applicants experiencing delivery delay issues MUST apply before the 8th October 2021 deadline in order to seek late payment due to exceptional circumstances.
