Domestic tourism set for a significant boost as holiday home searches more than double

The domestic tourism sector is set to receive a significant boost this summer, with a major rise in the number of people searching for holiday homes around the country.

Interest in staycations on the property website soared in recent weeks as lockdown restrictions were eased – with a 112% increase in searches for “Irish holiday homes” in June 2020 compared with the same period the year before.

The staycation trend looks set to benefit most tourism hotspots around the country, with significant increases in holiday home searches in June 2020 compared with June 2019 in counties including:

  • Kerry: up 107%
  • Sligo: up 105%
  • Galway: up 83%
  • Clare: up 57%
  • Donegal: up 45%
