Kerry is Ireland’s favourite holiday destination for domestic tourists, but it’s not the most popular among overseas visitors.
That’s according to two separate surveys, one by MyHome.ie, the other by Fáilte Ireland.
Kerry is Ireland’s favourite domestic holiday destination, according to a survey of 5,200 Irish holidaymakers by MyHome.ie.
The Kingdom topped this poll for the third time running, with 24.5% of voters saying it’s their favourite county for a break.
Galway claimed second place with 17%, while Cork was third on 14%.
Meanwhile one-million-and-26-thousand (1.026) overseas visitors travelled to Kerry last year and spent €234 million.
The figures are based on rolling, three-year averages from Fáilte Ireland’s Survey of Overseas Travellers.
They show that Cork and Galway got more visitors than Kerry last year at 1.4 and 1.3 million visitors respectively; Dublin was Ireland’s most-visited county in 2015 at 4.9 million.
