Stay and Spend Scheme

We are excited to announce that both Academy Plaza Hotel Dublin & our sister property Avalon House Hotel, Kilkenny are partnering the Government for their 'Stay and Spend' scheme.

This initiative is designed to encourage & reward Irish customers that engage & support Irish Hotels. Under the new scheme, income tax credits will be provided to tax payers who spend money in restaurants, pubs, hotels, B&Bs and other businesses.

From October 1st 2020 until April 30th 2021 you can claim back up to 20% of your receipts or up to €125 per person. You simply download the Revenue Receipts Tracker app on the App Store or Google Play Store. To submit your claim, take a photograph of your receipt on your mobile phone and upload this through the app. There is a minimum spend of €25 per transaction, but you can upload as many receipts as you like, up to a maximum spend of €625. The easiest way for you to apply for this rebate is to take a picture of hotel or food receipt and submit it through theRevenue Receipts Tracker App.

All you will need to do is indicate that the receipt relates to the scheme.You don't have to be on a staycation to avail of the scheme - SUPPORT LOCAL! All claims must be associated with booked accommodation and/or the purchase of food and soft drinks. Please note the scheme does not include alcohol.
