Consumer spending in Dublin has risen 5.1% with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions in the second quarter, a new report has found.

According to a report compiled by Mastercard on behalf of Dublin’s local authorities, consumers have been spending more in brick-and-mortar stores, leading to a 2.6% fall in e-commerce sales.

Meanwhile, expenditure on entertainment was 21.3% higher in the second quarter than in the previous three months, while spending on household goods, rose 20.6%.

Thanks to an influx of visitors from across Europe, spending by overseas tourists was up 25.6% versus the previous quarter and 184.4% year-on-year. This growth was driven largely by visitors from Britain, France and Germany.

Even as spending in the capital rose, the study said an even swifter recovery has been occurring nationally.
