The Central Statistics Office revealed that there is a rise in overseas tourism. The latest figures show that there has been earnings of over 8% in the tourism industry for the first half of the year. This year there has been a record growth in visitors from the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

On top of the scrapping of the 3 euro travel tax, the tourism industry is sure to prosper in Ireland next year.

“Our autumn campaign is now in full swing – we have a really extensive programme in place between now and the end of the year, targeting late-season travellers around the world.
