Visitors to Ireland from non-EU countries can claim
back sales taxes on purchases made in Ireland;
shopping in Ireland is subject to VAT (sales tax) of
23%. Always look for the "Tax-Free Shopping" sign
in the windows of participating stores. To avail of
your tax refund, you must complete a valid tax
refund document, which you can get from
participating stores. Present this document to the tax-back desk on departure from Ireland
and you can receive your refund on the spot at some
airports; otherwise, you can mail your tax refund
document and a refund will be issued.
Select shopkeepers will offer you the
Tax-Free shopping card, a new paperless
method of getting tax refunds brought to you by
FEXCO Tax-Free Shopping. With each purchase, the
card is swiped and tax-free eligible items are
logged. At the end of your trip, swipe the card in
the FEXCO Tax-Free Shopping kiosk at Dublin Airport
(WE will guide you!) Then, swipe any valid credit card and a refund will be issued as
a credit to that card. Keep in mind that FEXCO
does keep a percentage as a service fee! To
apply for the Free FEXCO card by mail,
click here! It will be mailed to you pretty
quickly. The card is valid for only one trip. If
asked, enter that you are currently traveling in
Ireland...When you receive it, simply register it

be good to go!
