Published on : Friday, August 30, 2019

According to Ireland’s national statistics bureau CSO , the total number of trips to Ireland made by overseas residents in July edged down by 0.5 percent to slightly below 1.16 million showing an overall decrease of 5,400 compared to a year earlier.


It was marked in July that the trips made by the Brits increased by 0.6 percent to 355,500 while trips by residents of European countries other than Britain dipped by 0.7 percent to 419,700.


The trips made by the  residents of the United States and Canada to Ireland in the month went down by 2.7 percent to 291,200, while trips to Ireland from other parts of the world increased by 4.1 percent to 88,700.



The total number of trips made in the seven months to the end of July 2019 ti Ireland by the overseas residents increased by 2.8 percent to 6.2 million as compared to the same period last year.




Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said that the month of July has shown a continuing weak trend while the figures for January to July indicate a very mixed picture.


There were weaker demand in the peak summer season as per the feedback from the industry partners.



Tourism Ireland’s 12 million euro autumn campaign is about to attract more visitors to Ireland.


The market was weaker in July due to the discontinuation and suspension of several international flight routes and suppressed demand by British visitors to Ireland due to the fall in the value of the British pound.


Among all the countries Britain is the largest source of visitors to Ireland.
