Limerick City and Adare make the list of Irish staycation destinations on the Airbnb 2024 Irish Travel Trends

Limerick Airbnb 2024
Adare is one of the top destinations in Ireland for those looking for a staycation in the Mid West

Airbnb has unveiled its anticipated forecast for Irish travellers in 2024, and two Limerick mentions make the list of prospective destinations for those planning staycations this year.

The data, compiled from user searches spanning from January 2023 to September 2023 shows a movement toward serene getaways and bustling cultural hotspots.

The Mid West is set to attract travellers from all over the country in 2024, with Limerick City and Adare making the list along with Clare towns like Miltown Malbay and Ennis ranking highly in the trending destinations.




The dual appearance of Limerick on the list underlines its growing appeal as a must-visit location for those looking for a getaway on the island or those looking to explore our history and experience the culture. 

Offering historic charm with landmarks such as King John’s Castle, cultural and sporting richness with attractions such as the International Rugby Experience, and warm hospitality with incredible dining and amazing hotels in the city and county, Limerick’s appeal resonates strongly with Irish travellers planning their 2024 adventures.

The country’s capital outranks three of the midwest spots, but with the 3Arena hosting Niall Horan’s three nights in February and Taylor Swift taking to the stage at the Aviva Stadium in June searches for accommodation in Dublin would have been aplenty.

The report also outlines destinations Irish travellers search for abroad with Indiana in the US ranking top and Japanese cities Osaka and Kyoto appearing in the top four with Poland’s Warsaw sitting firmly in second.
