Supplementary notes

¹ Figures from January to June 2021 only refer to air visits and cannot be compared with later years.

² Data derive from the International Passenger Survey (IPS) with a sample size of approximately 20,000 per month.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, no data were collected between the second and third quarters of 2020. For that period, figures refer to estimates and models based on passenger numbers and IPS trend data.

Data for 2021 do not include estimates for visits across the Irish land border. No data for the Eurotunnel was gathered from January 2021 to June 2022 but estimates include the passenger numbers using that route.

Data can be found under Table 2 of the source's Excel file.
