Restaurants are eligible for up to €2,500 as part of the fund.
Encouraging tourism and hospitality businesses to apply, Joan Crawford, Regional Manager of the Wild Atlantic Way at Fáilte Ireland, said: “Thousands of tourism and hospitality businesses have incurred costs while adapting their premises or operations to re-open safely. Fáilte Ireland’s COVID-19 Adaptation Fund has been designed to contribute to these costs.
