Dublin Airport’s Community Fund reopened for applications on September 1 for the fifth time.

The Fund supports communities around Dublin Airport such as Santry, Rolestown, Tyrresrown and Portmarnock. It donates to local projects that make a positive contribution to those neighbouring areas.

The €10 million Community Fund was launched in 2017 with an annual investment of €400,000 over 25 years. Support is focussed on areas such as: sports and recreation, environment and sustainability, social inclusion and community development, health and well-being, and culture and heritage.

This is round five of Funding from Dublin Airport’s Community Fund. Organisations who received financial help in the fourth round of funding included sports clubs, senior citizens initiatives, after school groups, arts, music and drama societies, multicultural groups and groups for people with disabilities.

Citizens interested in applying for funding can find an easy how-to-apply guide together with an application form on the airport’s website HERE.

Dublin Airport plays a vital role in the local and national economies, supporting 117,300 jobs and making an €8.3 billion contribution to the Irish economy.



Due to the impact of Covid-19 on our business and our industry, our Airport Hopper services will continue to be temporarily suspended until 2022. After a full review, we regret that we have made this decision as it will not be financially viable to deliver a service in the current climate. While it is great to see restrictions lifting and capacity on transport returning to 100%, we currently lack the supports and grants to restart our services. We will be back running our services in the New Year and we thank you for your understanding at this time and really appreciate the support and messages from all our regular customers.
