Ireland hoteliers report performance growth across the country

Europe’s hotel industry reported increases across the three key performance metrics during Q1 2018, according to data from STR.

Euro constant currency, Q1 2018 vs. Q1 2017


• Occupancy: +2.2% to 64.5%
• Average daily rate (ADR): +2.6% to EUR100.61
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +4.8% to EUR64.89

Local currency, Q1 2018 vs. Q1 2017


• Occupancy: +3.4% to 67.6%
• ADR: +6.2% to EUR113.67
• RevPAR: +9.7% to EUR76.79

The absolute levels in the key performance metrics were each the highest for a Q1 in STR’s Ireland database. STR analysts note that performance is strong across the country, not just in the always popular Dublin, where RevPAR increased 7.8%. Continuing to help Ireland’s performance is a lack of meaningful supply growth.


• Occupancy: +6.1% to 53.5%
• ADR: +0.6% to RUB4,942.27
• RevPAR: +6.7% to RUB2,645.49

While supply growth remained steady in the country, demand grew at a high rate (+7.9%) for the second consecutive Q1 in Russia.


• Occupancy: +24.0% to 63.7%
• ADR: +27.9% to TRY282.55
• RevPAR: +58.5% to TRY180.06
