Staycations

How Irish Tourism is affected by Covid (Also gaming chair giveaway)

With Ireland looking like it is at the start of its second wave just as the weather has turned for the first time to wintery conditions, the next few months look grim for Irish people and also Irish hotels and the tourism sector as a whole. Although Failte Ireland were encouraging people to do staycations this year it may not be enough to get the hotels through a tough winter as many people will choose to not holiday in Ireland in winter for obvious reasons (the weather).

With the borders closed to many countries things are looking very bleak indeed. Dublin has also gone back into a form of lock down and people living there have been told not to leave the county. This also of course has knock on affects as many of those people would have had weekends away planned and paid for.

There is light at the end of the tunnel however with the EU suggesting an EU wide travel map that will allow people to freely move once again through the EU. Countries that are particularly bad with Covid will still have restrictions on them however but it is certainly a move in the right direction.

We do not have the figures on EU citizens holidaying in Ireland in winter but at a guess it would not be a significant amount of people. In saying that any help is welcome! Without being too depressing in this post we just really hope for the best for the hotels this winter.
