Fáilte Ireland Develops Business Support Hub To Help Tourism Businesses

In response to COVID-19, Fáilte Ireland has created a new online support hub for tourism businesses.

The support hub includes practical webinars and advice guides on key areas such as business liquidity, HR and temporary closures as well as information on how to access government supports and funding.

Fáilte Ireland has spoken to hundreds of tourism businesses across the country about the supports and advice they most urgently need. This suite of tailored business supports was developed following these consultations, and the national tourism development authority said that the support hub will continue to develop as the COVID-19 crisis evolves.

Meeting "Immediate And Urgent Needs"

Fáilte Ireland CEO Paul Kelly stated, "The situation is changing by the day, and so will Fáilte Ireland's business supports so they meet the immediate and urgent needs of tourism and hospitality businesses. Fáilte Ireland is focusing its resources on the challenges and issues here and now, but also, importantly, looking at rebuilding the tourism industry and the vital contributions it makes to Irish society."
