has been jointly prepared by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) in Ireland and the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) in Northern Ireland. This report presents statistical information on inbound tourism activity for Ireland and Northern Ireland. It covers visitors coming to Ireland and Northern Ireland from outside the island of Ireland and includes information on overnight visitors, accommodation used, the reason for visiting, expenditure, key markets and complementary information on air and sea passenger throughput.
It is the result of close collaboration between the statistical services in both jurisdictions. The publication draws together previously published statistics to enable readers to compare and contrast the different inbound tourism markets in Ireland and Northern Ireland. This report should be of value to a range of users, including the tourism industry, Government Departments and Agencies, as well as to the Cross Border Bodies established under the 1998 Belfast Agreement.
