Online booking trends show strong performance for Ireland hotels in Q1 2023 with a significant growth in terms of Room-nights (+15%) and Direct Booked Revenue (+30%) compared to the same period in the previous year.

Growth was also sustained from non-domestic markets performance as our Top Movers Countries data show: Booked Revenue from USA travellers show a significant +90% growth, then UK +15% and Canada +84%.

Online Advertising on Digital Media channels (Search, Meta, Display and Video, etc...) continue to be an effective strategy for hotels focusing on direct bookings as our Digital Media KPIs show:

  • Advertising budget allocated by hotels on Digital Media channels has grown by +24%
  • ROI is strong with a x28 Return on Investment, an increase of +8% compared to average ROI in the same time range in the previous year

This data was sourced from Bookassist Hotels Clients and the period of analysis was January to March 2023.
