Annie, the Yelp.ie Community Manager sent me over some extra details:
What’s in it for Yelp? Firstly it is completely free for the businesses to partake in and they decided on their own offers so we are making no money from it.
Quite simply it’s raising our brand awareness and how we are all about people finding local businesses. This will be our very first time to do it in a European neighbourhood which is very exciting.
