75% say they will be holidaying in the Emerald Isle this Easter Break!


27th March 2012


Easter is just around the corner, which means Easter holidays. Freedom from school and work gives us the opportunity to take a well earned break. 11850 Ireland’s original independent directory enquiry services have recently recorded an increase of calls from people looking for restaurants, bed and breakfasts, hotels, and leisure centres. With this trend, 11850 undertook a poll to find out if people would be holidaying at home in the Emerald Isle or jetting off to have some fun in the sun abroad.

The results showed that 75% of respondents are supporting the domestic economy by holidaying at home in Ireland. If the weather keeps up, we will be able to get the perfect summer glow here at home! With Ireland having so many beautiful attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Giant’s Causeway, it really is no surprise that people are choosing to stay at home. A lucky 19% of respondents will be jetting off abroad over the Easter period.

11850 will provide you with all the numbers you need to make your break more enjoyable, whether it is taxis, shops or childminding services you need. Let’s hope the Easter bunny comes to us all, Happy Easter!
