Sample Comments at the end of the survey:

- Very Much miss travel at the moment. My husband is in the risk category so self-catering accommodation offers, please, preferably on the grounds of the hotel.

- You offer excellent value breaks. Keep them coming.

- Lovely hotel offers from Golden Ireland.

- Until things improve, I'll postpone holidays for now. I don't like the idea of having to book times to access a swimming pool or be restricted from using it, although I realise it's necessary.

- For us Golden Oldies there are great value offers at this time of year and we should encourage our hotels by supporting them.

- We need to promote and encourage people to staycation here in Ireland.

- Older age group are very aware of covid restrictions but by nature and maturity are very respectful of regulations and fellow guests.

- Autumn/Winter/Spring holidays are very important for older people. Makes life interesting and helps the economy.
