Hotels and guesthouses across Donegal are backing a call by the Irish hotels Federation (IHF) for the Government to retain the tourism VAT rate at 9% saying it is essential to help further job creation and tourism growth.

Tourism supports some 7,500 jobs throughout the county and contributes €213 million each year to the local economy, making an enormous contribution to Donegal.
