    effective marketing campaigns targeting key overseas markets and a number of pro tourism initiatives such as the 9 VAT rate He cautions however that issues around cost competitiveness need to be addressed and that the increasing cost of doing business in Ireland poses a serious challenge to tourism as the recovery in the economy takes hold The upturn is contributing to significant jobs growth with 64 of hotels and guesthouses having increased staffing levels this year and 57 planning to take on further staff over the next 12 months This builds on the 33 000 new jobs created by tourism and hospitality businesses since 2011 accounting for more than one of every three new jobs in Ireland over this period Mr McNally says Irish tourism has performed strongly throughout the year and we re now approaching a record breaking 8 million overseas visitors for 2015 This is an enormous achievement and a testament to the hard work of the thousands of tourism businesses throughout the country Next year looks set to deliver further growth across our key markets such as Britain North America and Europe providing a further boost to hotels and guesthouses The improved outlook for the tourism and hospitality sector means that hotel and guesthouse owners are now in a stronger position to invest in their business with results showing that 92 of hoteliers are planning to invest in refurbishment and product development over the next 12 months while 62 are planning to increase their investment in marketing Mr McNally states that strong cut through on the marketing front has reinvigorated Ireland s tourism brand and image as a holiday destination He says We continue to make significant strides in developing our tourism product and in giving holidaymakers new and compelling reasons to visit Examples include the recently launched Ireland s Ancient East trail and of course the Wild Atlantic Way which is proving to be an enormous draw Targeted investment in initiatives such as these is vital to the long term success of our tourism product Business tourism is another area of continued growth supported by greater levels of activity in the domestic economy and increased success in capturing a larger share of the global conference and incentive travel market Of those hotels catering for corporate meetings and business events 71 are seeing an increase in this area of their business compared with last year Notwithstanding the upturn in tourism Mr McNally notes that the benefits of the recovery are not being felt to the same extent throughout the country He states that growth in occupancy levels continues to lag in areas outside the traditional tourism hotspots due to an over reliance on the domestic market which accounts for over 80 of revenues for many hotels and guesthouses outside the larger urban areas He cautions that many premises are operating from a low revenue base following the down turn which means the high cost of servicing overhanging debt is a serious challenge This still weighs heavily on
