New report shows number of pubs in every constituency

A new report details the number of pubs, hotels and restaurants in Ireland and every constituency within, writes Pam Ryan.

The report, released by the Drinks Industry Group of Ireland (DIGI), was researched and written by DCU economist, Anthoney Foley.

The aim of the research was to highlight how the drinks sector contributes to local economies throughout Ireland and how the country's high alcohol excise tax risks derailing growth and discouraging tourists from visiting, particularly those from the United Kingdom.

Ireland's alcohol excise tax is the second highest in the EU, behind only Finland.

By drink category, Ireland has the highest wine excise, the second highest beer excise and the third highest spirits excise.

But does that harm the publican economy?

Figures from the report show that the drinks and hospitality sector pays €2.9 billion in wages and helps deliver €6.4 billion in tourism revenue each year.

The report also breaks down the figures by constituency. In Tipperary for example, the sector supports 4,000 jobs and pays out €87 million in wages, while in Dublin West, the industry employes 6,290 people and drives €140.8 million in wages.
