WHILE LAS VEGAS might be a slightly better destination to head to if you’re planning a party — Dublin leaves the likes of New York and Rio de Janiero in the shade, at least, according to one metric.

The capital’s been named at number six in a list of best value party cities for Eurozone travellers, according to research from accommodation website Hotels.com.

The site’s Hotel Price Index measures prices paid per hotel room rather than advertised rates.

At an average of €88 per room per night, Dublin’s just ahead of Barcelona in seventh place — followed at the lower end of the table by London, New York and Rio.

Bangkok tops the list — with the rest of the top five comprised of Madrid, Vegas, Buenos Aires and Berlin.

Speaking earlier this week, Tourism Minister Leo Varadkar said he hoped to grow the number of tourists heading to Ireland by 4 per cent by the end of the year.

The current focus of the Government is on growing visitors from developing markets, the Minister said.
