The Netherlands

2016 was a record year for overseas visitors from the Netherlands to the island of Ireland.  

Recent results published by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) confirm that arrivals from the Netherlands to Ireland increased by +28% in 2016 to over 235,000 – that’s more than 52,000 extra arrivals from the Netherlands when compared to 2015.

The Netherlands is an increasingly important market for tourism to the island of Ireland.

Results for the first nine months of 2016 from the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA)  suggest that visitor revenue from Mainland Europe to Northern Ireland increased by +11% to £80 million when compared to the same period in 2015 and Mainland European visitors to Northern Ireland grew by +14% to over 270,000 during the same period.
