Ireland has been given a major boost in tourism with the announcement that it will now be able to offer holiday rentals to the whole of the island.
The change was announced by Minister for Tourism Mary Mitchell O’Connor who announced the move in Dublin on Monday.
Dublin’s only other airport will now offer holiday rental flights.
There will also be a new service available on the island with flights from Galway to Wicklow.
Ms Mitchell O”s announcement came after a number of local airports on the north and west coast of Ireland offered holiday rental services.
It comes amid growing demand from visitors from across the world.
The island has also seen an increase in the number of tourists from the United States and overseas, with a record 4.8 million arrivals in the first six months of 2017.
Last year the number was down to just over 1.5 million.
