Stay & Spend Scheme

Stay & Spend Scheme

Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort is delighted to be part of the new Stay and Spend Scheme in Ireland. We believe a luxury stay with us in Ireland’s Ancient East is the best way to avail of the Stay and Spend scheme, and we have a number of indulgent hotel offers and self-catering family packages to suit everyone. The Irish Government have released more information on the Stay and Spend scheme for staycationers in Ireland to enjoy all the wonders we have to offer in Waterford at a much more affordable price. The staycation scheme is aimed at taxpayers in Ireland who have been unable to holiday this year, and the credit can be claimed as an income tax credit. 

The spend at home staycation voucher offers twenty percent tax relief to those who spend between €25 and €625 in one purchase. The purchase must be made by a registered service provider such as Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort. The staycation tax relief can be claimed on expenses that include accommodation in the Castle hotel or self-catering lodges, food in the Castle or the Kings Channel Golf Clubhouse, and non-alcoholic beverages in both the Castle and Golf Clubhouse. 

To apply for the staycation subsidy simply upload a copy of any relevant receipts from your stay at Waterford Castle, along with the details of your purchase to Revenue’s new staycation tax back app to avail of the staycation scheme. The app has created a simple and easy way to provide proof of expenditure for your stay and spend tax relief. You will receive the tax rebate for your income tax for the period in which you make your claim. We look forward to welcoming you to Waterford Castle and showing you our world class hospitality. Below we have compiled some useful questions and answers to assist you.
