Jobs, Exports, Tourism

In these challenging times the drinks industry is a major employer and contributor to the Irish economy:

  • We provide 62,000 jobs
  • We generate over €2 billion in tax revenue
  • We export €1.25 billion of produce every year


Our input to Irish life is not merely confined to the economy. Our extensive network of pubs, restaurants, hotels, and nightclubs are all important services that Irish people use on a daily basis.

Our brands are also world leaders in the global drinks market and contribute significantly to Ireland’s international profile.

This helps enormously in driving and developing tourism that our extensive network of pubs and facilities help sustain.

In this section you can read the relevant research we have commissioned that outlines the drinks industry’s major contribution to the Irish economy, Irish exports, Ireland’s social and cultural life, and to Irish tourism.
