Micheál Stapleton from B&B Ireland says “measures for international travel for the summer months need to be announced without delay so travellers from countries such as America, who typically plan their trips far in advance, are not lost entirely this year.”
This means for the B&B sector to survive they will need the government to have a proper reopening plan for international travel. From june 2nd accommodation providers can reopen there doors in the republic. In order for over 2500 of these businesses to make money, they will need the international market to be open.
The domestic market isn’t big for the B&B industry in Ireland; it’s more an international product that brings in the income for these businesses.
With the government to announce its plans for international travel over the summer months this week. There will hopefully be clear guidelines to allow travellers to visit Ireland safely.
