The capital is also the most expensive domestic location, with a standard double room averaging €107 from October 24 to November 2.

Despite this, average prices for Dublin in October 2014 dropped nine per cent compared to September, but increased 11 per cent compared to October 2013.

Waterford is the cheapest destination in the top 10, with the average price of a standard hotel room at €81.

The most popular international destination is London, also the most expensive, with an average room price of €195.

John Pilkington of Trivago UK & Ireland says: “It is interesting to see that Dublin and London remain the top choices for Irish holidaymakers despite the higher prices found there. These two cities were also favourites for summer travel, showing their popularity in Ireland.”

Unsurprisingly, city breaks and beach locations in Southern Europe make the Trivago’s top 15 most searched international destinations.

Nine European capitals top the list — London, Belfast, Paris, Edinburgh, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Rome, Berlin and Prague — while four beach locations appear as well — Puerto del Carmen, Benidorm, Albufeira and Playa Blanca.
