Visitor satisfaction reports from market research company Gallup shows that Irish tourists are the most satisfied with their visit to Iceland. Visitor satisfaction rated 84.6% in April, up by 1% from the same time period last year. The visitor satisfaction report asks visitors to rate their destination with respect to different dimensions such as quality of accommodation, hospitality, and value for money.

Irish tourists gave Iceland the highest score, 89.2 points out of 100. Portugese tourists gave Iceland a rating of 87.1 points while Germans gave the country a rating of 86.8 points.

When it comes to value for money, Iceland as a destination scored 81.1 points for the month of April, a considerable increase from last year when the country scored 77.3 points. This can in part be assigned to the devaluation of the Icelandic króna in recent months.

The only direct flight from Ireland to Iceland is daily Icelandair service from Dublin to Keflavik International Airport, near Reykjavik.
