Application deadline extended for Cork City Outdoor Dining Grant


30th September 2021

Cork City Council has extended the application deadline for businesses to apply for Outdoor Seating and Accessories Grant for Tourism and Hospitality Businesses to 8th October 2021.

This is in recognition of the global demand for outdoor seating and accessories.  Applicants can still apply under the scheme and will receive their grants once goods are delivered and they can provide proof of delivery and goods are in-situ.

This grant scheme is open to existing businesses in the tourism and hospitality sector throughout Cork City  – hotels, cafes, attractions, restaurants, public houses and other establishments where food is sold for consumption on the premises. The scheme supports outdoor dining on public areas, such as roads and footpaths, as well as on the applicant's private property, such as courtyards etc.  As a further support to businesses Cork City Council has waived all fees in relation to Street Furniture Licences for 2021, which are required for dining on public streets, paths etc.
