A new survey has found that New York is the dream destination for most Irish People on St. Patrick’s Day.

According to a survey conducted by Hotels.com, 62 per cent of Irish people would like to spend the day in New York with 72 per cent voting that it is also the place they would most like to attend the St. Patrick’s Day parade. Chicago was also a popular choice with a 29 per cent preference and 26 per cent for Las Vegas while Boston’s parade was a popular second choice at 38 per cent.

Kate Hopcraft of Hotels.com said: “While the bank holiday weekend will see an influx of visitors into Dublin to see the famous parade, it’s interesting to see that many Irish use the bank holiday weekend to enjoy festivities abroad,” TheStar.ie reports.

The survey, conducted by Hotels.com also asked its volunteers to vote on which famous landmark they would most like to see go green on St. Patrick’s Day. This resulted in a 16 per cent first place tie between New York’s Statue of Liberty and Sydney’s Opera House with Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue coming in at a close third.
