GALWAY is the city most people would like to spend New Year's Eve in, writes Louise Hogan.
Almost half of those questioned in a new survey plan to go on holiday during the Christmas break, with 58pc planning a short 'staycation'.
Yet, one in five was planning to fly off to sunnier climes to soak up some winter sunshine, according to the survey from travel experts Hotels.com.
Around 18pc were planning a New Year's Eve break away, with 16pc going to visit family or friends. Around 44pc of people would spend the break in New York if finances permitted.
However, closer to home, Galway was voted the top destination by 29pc of people.
