Ireland offers a very attractive film tax credit for Irish based film and television productions.

Introduced in 2015, replacing an old incentive system, the credit of up to 32% is paid on the Irish eligible spend of a production budget up to a maximum of 80% of the total budget or €70m whichever is the lower.
