Galway is most popular post-lockdown travel destination in Ireland

Galway has been named as the most popular post-lockdown travel destination in Ireland.

The harbour city has ranked top of the places people want to visit after lockdown, with people keen to head more locally to travel after the coronavirus pandemic.

A study by SunDrift found that 60 per cent of people would prefer to travel locally compared to less than a third (30 per cent) who would want to go abroad. And 10 per cent of people admit to skipping a summer holiday all together.

For local travel, Galway was top with 24 per cent of the vote, followed by Kerry and Wexford (both 16 per cent) and Cork, Donegal and Sligo all in third place at 12 per cent each.

SunDrift founder, Fiona Parfrey, said: "Having been confined for the past couple of months it's clear from our survey that the Irish public has every intention of getting outdoors, exploring and making new memories as soon as the opportunity arises. We may have been grounded this summer but it seems Irish travellers have every intention of taking flight once things return to normal!"
