Leisure & Hospitality

Hotels, bars and restaurants play a significant part in the Irish economy. They contribute up to €7.5 Bn per annum to GDP and employ in excess of 250,000 workers. With supporting businesses included it is a €10 Bn industry. The recovery of hospitality businesses in the post pandemic period is critical for the wider Irish economy.  

The government has played a key role in maintaining resilience in the sector during the pandemic with various financial supports. However, with these schemes coming to an end rebuilding and restructuring is now required to nurse the industry back to full health. Without appropriate support the effects of the pandemic restrictions will be borne for quite some time. Hotels, bars and restaurants need a life cycle approach to reset and get going again. Problem solving with creative solutions are the core need of the current advisory requirements for hospitality businesses.
