Hospitality Welcomes 9% VAT Extension

Hotels, guesthouses and restaurants across the country have welcomed the announcement from Government that it is to extend the 9% VAT rate for the tourism and hospitality industry to the end of February 2023. This measure will go a long way to helping the industry recovery.

Given the challenges ahead, the Irish Hotels Federation is calling on the Government to further extend this measure out to 2025 in order to maintain international competitiveness with other European destinations.

IHF President Denyse Campbell said that the 9% VAT rate is the right rate to support recovery in Irish tourism and hospitality and enable the sector to rebuild following an exceptionally challenging two years – particularly in light of spiralling business costs.

MasterChef Finals from Ballymaloe

Images of Ballymaloe Cookery School were beamed into the homes of around 7.5 million people across Britain when the season finale of MasterChef – taking place over three episodes this week – began airing on BBC One.

Filming for the special Ireland cooking challenge took place last year and was supported by Tourism Ireland and Fáilte Ireland.

Viewers saw the final four contestants travel to Cork, together with judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace, where they met with Darina Allen and Rory O'Connell of Ballymaloe Cookery School for a whirlwind education in local Irish produce and the ethos of "farm-to-table". The finalists were challenged to prepare a celebratory dinner for some of Ireland’s finest food producers, food historians and relatives of the late, great patron of Irish cuisine, Myrtle Allen.
