Staycations are growing in popularity.
New figures show a total of 13.3 million domestic trips were taken last year.
It's a 14 per cent increase on the pre-covid days of 2019.
The total spend for the period was €2.9billion, that's up 36% on 2019.
Fáilte Ireland CEO Paul Kelly is welcoming the figures, which he says demonstrates the passion Irish people have for discovering our beautiful country.
