Outdoor Seating & Accessories for Tourism & Hospitality Business and Public Houses scheme


Fáilte Ireland together with Roscommon County Council are now inviting applications for the Outdoor Seating and Accessories for Tourism & Hospitality Business Scheme.

The focus of this scheme is to provide a level of financial support to tourism and hospitality businesses, in our town centres, to purchase or upgrade equipment to provide additional outdoor seating and, therefore, increase their outdoor dining capacity for the summer of 2021. This scheme will financially assist and support independent tourism and hospitality business owners to create outdoor dining experiences in a regulated and accessible manner.  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.

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.


Applications must be submitted via My Online Services where you will be required to register for an account or login if you have previously registered.

 Terms and Conditions are available here

Closing date for receipt of fully completed Application Forms online is extended to  Friday October 8th 2021 at 5pm.

Late submissions will not be considered

Any queries relating to the scheme may be emailed to outdoordining@roscommoncoco.ie
