IDA Ireland has a total of five buildings in County Galway. Three of these premises are occupied and two of them are being actively marketed to clients through its network of offices in Ireland and overseas. The IDA does not own any buildings in Roscommon but operates a Business and Technology Park there with available land that is being actively marketed to existing and prospective clients.

More broadly, the trend in foreign direct investment remains positive for both Counties, with Roscommon and Galway respectively seeing a 3% and 8% increase in 2018. The IDA will be working hard in 2019 to grow those numbers further.
