If you are a new business who wants to set up in Limerick, Limerick City and County Council would like to hear from businesses seeking to set up or expand new retail or commercial ventures. Limerick City and County Council’s Business & Retail Incentive Scheme has attracted a growing number of independent retailers to Limerick.  Already 30 plus retailers have located here in Limerick last year, creating approximately 270 jobs and Limerick City and County Council want to continue to support this momentum.

Limerick 2030 has provided a platform for the positive changes Limerick City and County Council are seeing in the city centre and the opportunities for new businesses will continue to grow through the delivery of the key development sites in this plan.

“The Council, along with other development agencies across the region, is committed to supporting economic activity at a local and regional level.  Limerick’s future competitiveness depends on the entrepreneurial skills of local entrepreneurs and SMEs, who must be supported”, commented Pat Daly, Director of Economic Development & Planning, Limerick City and County Council.


Mr. Daly continued: “One of our biggest challenges is finding out what business operators are out there and whether they may be interested in opening up a new retail or commercial operation in Limerick.  Therefore, we are looking to make contact with start-up business owners who have retail or commercial venture that they are seeking to advance”.

The local authority’s Economic Development Department says its range of business supports and continued improvements in the Irish economy are presenting new investment and expansion opportunities for local enterprises.

New and existing business owners interested in setting up a business in Limerick  should contact the Economic Development Department Limerick City and County Council, Patrick Street, Limerick on  061 – 407540/407541 or [email protected].
