Come for a visit and you will see why Ireland is the number one FDI location in the world. We pride ourselves on the experience we offer potential investors who visit Ireland. From introductions to other FDI companies and site visits to property locations, banks and regulators — whatever is required — we will ensure you leave excited about the potential for your business in Ireland.
For a business to engage with the IDA it must have a track record of at least two years and employ 40+ staff.
Putting you in touch with the relevant expert within our global offices is our first priority. Whether you are involved in Bio Pharm, Tech or Business Services, we have a specialist focused on your sector.
Our next priority, if it hasn't happened already, is to meet you so we can get to know each other better. This is when we explore your proposed project: what you need, what are the must-haves and can Ireland supply them?
Once you are interested and have engaged with us, the IDA Ireland team assigned to you will put together an itinerary for a visit to Ireland. This will be based on the time you have, your project, needs, interests and concerns. Whether you have one or four days we will tailor the trip for you. It's one investment that will pay dividends.

The best seal of approval we receive is from our clients. Talking to them will give you a real feel for the investment experience in Ireland. So, we let them give you the low-down about the Irish investing and operational experience.
Concerned about visas, schools, electricity, phones or executive accommodation? Whether you are starting with 12 or 200 people, it’s our job to help you hit the ground running and settle in well.
Once the site visit is completed we present your proposed investment project to the IDA management and board. This comprises of your business plan for investing in Ireland and contains details about the proposed project, such as number of employees, skill sets, desired location plus relevant financial information.
If your proposal is approved as an IDA project everything swings into action to get you up and running on Irish soil. Depending on the company and the project this can take as little as 6 to 10 weeks from first contact to your company being up and running from their new European base in Ireland.
