Dublin tourism levy bid

Dublin City Council is to launch a fresh bid to charge a hotel bed tax or visitor levy on tourists to the capital.dublin0120
 The council intends to begin a consultation with stakeholders including Fáilte Ireland and accommodation providers about the possibility of introducing some form of visitor levy.
Any new tax on tourists would need legislation to be passed by the Oireachtas.
 The introduction of a tourist tax or visitor levy is included in the work programme of the council’s finance strategic policy committee. It said its previous requests to the Government to bring in a form of tourist tax had proven unsuccessful.

 

Its head of finance, Kathy Quinn, pointed out that tourism makes an important contribution to Dublin's economy with almost six million overseas visitors spending €2bn in 2017.
In addition around 1.8m domestic visitors from the Republic and Northern Ireland contributed another €434m to businesses in the city.
 The council argues that further growth in tourism to Dublin will require additional resources to support sustainable future investment as well as to manage the impact of Dublin’s success as a tourism destination on the city and its residents.
