In a survey among users of Irish travel website GoHop.ie Las Vegas has been voted the money-no-object place Irish people would love to visit in the United States.
No destinations in Europe made it into GoHop.ie's top ten. Australia came in second place followed by South Africa, Orlando and San Francisco. A cruise was the seventh most popular holiday idea. Other destinations that made the top ten included Sri Lanka, India, Mauritius and Dubai.
The website's founder, Stephen McKenna said the results showed "strong desire for far flung, romantic and exotic holiday destinations for the Irish holidaymaker. I do think there is a desire in Ireland for holiday destinations that offer complete escapism and unique, life-changing experiences."
