Irish couples are the least romantic about Valentine’s Day judging by how much they spend on weekend breaks to celebrate the occasion, according to a survey.
The Spanish, French, Italians and Germans fork out far more on special Valentine’s breaks than Irish tourists, the poll by lastminute.com showed.
Irish couples spend just €160 and UK couples only £145 (€175) compared with the Spanish figure of €261.
The French (€250), Italians (€210) and Germans (€180) also outspend the Irish, the survey revealed.
For Irish couples travelling abroad, the top Valentine’s Day destination is Barcelona, according to the survey.
