Fáilte Ireland Research: Hotel Survey December 2021 | Tourism Performance | Scoop.it

The Hotel Survey report provides key performance data, room and bed occupancy rates, Average Daily Rates (ADR) and Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) of Irish hotels at a national, regional and county (where available).

 

The key findings for December 2021 were: 

  • National hotel occupancy stood at 40.7% in December 2021. Compared 55.8% in December 2019, a decline of -27% due to the emergence of the Omicron variant which led to travel disruption and reduced accommodation demand.
  • Bedspace occupancy was also lower than previous months at 32.8%.
  • Continuing the trend of previous months, ADR increased compared with 2019. National ADR was €136.10 in December 2021 which was +16% above December 2019.
  • The strong ADR performance was achieved during the festive period, despite the impact of Omicron. Hotels that remained opened during this period were also more likely to be luxury operators which contributed to the high ADR growth.
