The Horizon Card records details of each purchase – you don’t need to keep receipts and have more time to shop.
Saves time and is easy to use with all information saved on one card.
Cardholders benefit from great discounts and offers. See the Stores & Discounts section for details.
You can also get a card from any of the participating stores, from your tour operator, or through our Horizon Tax Free Shopping App.

VAT / Sales Tax is already included in the price of your purchase. This VAT / Sales Tax is charged by the Irish Government at 23% of the net price of the goods (equivalent to 18.70% of the gross value). Under the Retail Export Scheme, non EU residents are entitled to claim back their VAT / Sales Tax on goods they export from the EU.
If you are a non-EU resident you may be eligible to shop tax free in Ireland.
