CSO: Tourism Revenue Is Down, Despite Increase In Visitor Numbers.

: 06/12/2019 - 17:35

Despite an increase in the number of overseas visitors to Ireland, tourism revenue and earnings fell in the first quarter of the year.

CSO figures show over 2 million people visited our shores in the first three months of 2019, that's an increase of 5.5 per cent.

However, tourists stayed fewer nights, down from 6.5 to 6 nights and they spent less.
