70% of hoteliers and guesthouses in Kildare are forecasting a good summer for the sector

That's according to a survey by the Irish Hotels Federation

Importantly for Kildare, the domestic market remains buoyant with 60% of hoteliers seeing an increase in home-grown business compared to this time last year.

In terms of overseas visitors, six in ten  hoteliers say business levels from the US are up while four in ten  are seeing an increase from Germany.  

Nationally, almost half of hoteliers are seeing a drop in UK business while one in five say their advance bookings for the rest of the summer are down compared to last year.
