The Irish Tourism Industry Confederation (ITIC) issued its monthly tourism dashboard today, August 24, which shows inbound visitor numbers for the month of June as well as for Q2 2023.

According to ITIC's findings, visitors from North America brought in revenue of €827 million in Q2 2023, the largest amount of revenue compared to Great Britain (€396 million), continental Europe (€574 million), and the rest of the world (€166 million) during the same period.

While North America brought in the highest revenue, it had a comparatively low number of visitors (374,000) for Q2 2023. 617,200 visitors were from Great Britain, 583,100 were from continental Europe, and 80,800 were from the rest of the world for the same period.

ITIC used data from the CSO, STR, daa, and Shannon Airport for its newly published dashboard.

Overall, the data showed that 619,900 tourists came to Ireland in June with a total of 1,655,100 visitors for the three months of Q2 2023.

Tourists brought in an expenditure of €841 million in June 2023 and €1.963 million for the period of April to June.

ITIC notes that Q2 traditionally accounts for 30% of annual tourism volume and is a key period of the industry calendar.

ITIC welcomed the publication of CSO data on visitor volume and revenue from earlier this week but highlighted that - due to methodology differences - direct comparisons with 2019, the last full year pre-pandemic, were difficult to make.

However, ITIC stressed that there were enough insights to suggest that volume and value performances are lagging previous times and that the full recovery of the tourism industry is some way off.

Elsewhere in its newly published dashboard, ITIC found that Dublin Airport claimed the bulk of travelers during Q2 with 9.13 million. Cork Airport had 793,000 while Shannon Airport had just over 563,365.

For the month of June, Dublin Airport saw 3.24 million travelers, while Cork Airport had 280,366 and Shannon Airport had 202,760.
