Welcome to Local Enterprise Office Galway

Covid 19

Businesses across Galway are currently in uncharted waters due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Many are facing critical challenges, including temporary ceasing of trading, cash flow and financial difficulties, staff continuity options and an uncertain future.

Local Enterprise Office Galway is available to support local businesses in addressing these challenges and help ensure they’re in the strongest possible position possible in the face of an unprecedented and continuously evolving situation.

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation has put in place a package of business supports, some of which are available through Leo Galway.

While all upcoming training events and face to face meetings have been postponed in the interest of public safety, Local Enterprise Office Galway remains open to assist local businesses with any queries they may have during this difficult time.  

Experts are available to assist with all queries at 091 509090, or through email at info@leo.galwaycoco.ie.

We are here to help you to start your new business, expand an existing business or help you to reach new markets.
