We are there to advise our members when they experience difficulties of any sort within their business.

Who we are.

With 4,000 members the VFI is a vibrant National Trade Organisation for pubs outside the greater Dublin area.

What we do.

We work on our members’ behalf to promote and protect their interests and give advice to members on topics such as licensing laws, employment legislation, planning matters and much more.

How we work.

The Federation is organised on a national and county basis to ensure that members have full access with full support from the trade at all levels for any policy decision, programme or plan which the National Executive Council of the Federation considers necessary to protect and promote the interests of members and to ensure that their business will give them a satisfactory livelihood.
