    Default Tourist numbers

    Overseas visits to Ireland down 13% in Q4 2009

    Mary H will have her hands full.

    Eliminate the travel tax ASAP and reduce DAA charges as well.

    We need tourists. It is vital to expenditure across the economy.

    The bigggest drop, if what I've read elsewhere is true, is in visitors from the UK. Hopefully the fall in sterling vs the Euro may help somewhat here, though obviously the British economy is still in bad shape and people may not be inclined to travel at all.

    Would like to visit Ireland, the weaker the euro gets against sterling the better for that though I remain concerned about high prices as mentioned on P.ie, and a tiny bit doubtful still about the welcome Brits get in Ireland?
    Brexit? Never heard of it mate...

    Blokesbloke, believe me, you will have a great time. It has never been cheaper here. Hotels are dirt cheap and in the main good quality for a lot less than you pay in the UK.

    As regards the welcome Brits get here, I can assure you it is no different from the welcome most people get in Ireland, indiffferent in Dublin but warm and welcoming everywhere else, HOWEVER, (before all the Dubs here lynch me) Dublin is great fun and a good night out is almost certain.

    If we could grow tourist numbers even more it could effect greatly consumer spend and vat / excise receipts.

    Invite a foreign friend to Ireland in 2012.
