Summer 15 Shone for Tourism

Summer 2015 was a particularly successful season for most Irish tourism businesses, boosted in part by return visitors and 


favourable exchange rates, according to the findings in the latest Fáilte IrelandTourism Barometer. The Barometer is a survey of tourism businesses which seeks to gauge tourism performance for the year to date and prospects for the year ahead.

Paid serviced accommodation providers recorded an excellent year so far, with a large proportion (78%) of respondents to th

e survey reporting growth. Hotels lead the way, with around four in five (79%) reporting an increase in business, followed by 69% of guesthouses. Even the B&B sector, which has struggled in recent years, is showing very good signs of improvement, with 70% of operators saying that their business is up so far this year.

Accommodation providers were not the only ones who enjoyed a buoyant summer and the majority (79%) of tourist attractions have also seen a boost in the number of visitors welcomed through their doors so far this year – with the overseas markets even stronger - 85% registered growth in visitors from across the waters.
