Ireland Slips in Global Travel & Tourism Rankings

Ireland has slipped three places to number 24 in the latest annual global tourism rankings study by the World Economic Forum (WEF).

The WEF’s latest Travel & Tourism Development Index (TTDI) shows that global tourism has recovered to pre-pandemic health levels, but that different regions are improving at different speeds than others.

In Ireland’s case, the scores could have been better. Ireland ranks 24th in the latest TTDI; three places down on 12 months ago.

The country also scored badly on a number of key tourism measures.

Ireland scored 5.6 points on business environment; 6.1 on safety and security; 5.68 on health and hygiene; 4.67 on openness to travel and tourism; 2.78 on price competitiveness; 4.98 on air transport infrastructure; 4.33 on ground and port infrastructure; and 4.55 on tourist infrastructure.
