B&Bs who have been struggling during the pandemic are set to be given a cash injection from today.
Tourism Minister Catherine Martin has launched the Restart Grant Plus scheme for B&Bs, which is being administered by Fáilte Ireland.
Grants of €4,000 will be available to B&Bs that do not pay rates to their Local Authority. Fáilte Ireland says “the grant allocation will assist B&B owners with the costs of re-opening and operating their businesses”.
B&Bs in Kildare, Laois and Offaly - where there were localised lockdowns in place last month - will receive an increased grant amount of €4,800.
