Three punters on a winning streak as Las Vegas pops up in Dublin


Las Vegas‘s Heidi Hayes helped bring a bit of desert sunshine to wintertime Dublin after the city’s attendance at Holiday World 2018.
The January Blues surgery – contained in a pop-up shop on South William Street – offered advice on the Nevada city. To coincide with the latest connection to Vegas – via London Gatwick with British Airways – three members of the public won holiday packages to the city on the new service.

Ireland is the ninth most important international market for Las Vegas, with 70,466 visitors. Those latest figures – for 2016 – also show it was the second fastest growing global market in the top 10 (up 5.8pc), second only to China. The figure is 49,092 in 2007, with Ireland now making up 1.2pc of the total international market.
