Tourism Ireland sees the increase of overseas tourists

 Wednesday, January 1, 2020 


The Tourism Ireland indicates that the overseas tourists have been increased by 1.5% in the first eleven months of 2019, around 150,500 more than in January-November 2018.



2019 has been a mixed year for Irish tourism and this is reflected in tourism. They have seen a small increase in tourists from Britain (+0.2%), a modest performance from both mainland Europe and North America (+1.6%), and tourists from long-haul markets up 5.6%. However, the month of November has seen a disappointing decline of 7.1%, with a decline in tourists from Britain mainland Europe and North America (-9.5%) for the month of November alone.



These tourism figures very much reflect feedback from our industry partners on the ground, who’ve seen weaker demand this year. The continued uncertainty around Brexit is giving rise to consumer concern in Britain and some mainland European markets. There’s also been deterioration in air access capacity this year, with a 4% decline for this winter.
