Bad weather is pushing Irish people to become Europe's top dreamers.
While we like to fantasise about foreign trips, shortage of money stops those dreams becoming a reality.
Irish people dream of jetting off five times a week, almost twice as often as people in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.
More than two thirds of us, however, are too cash-strapped to fulfil these dreams.
A YouGov survey reveals that 18- to 44-year-olds are the most likely to be held back by shortage of finances.
The weather is the catalyst for 56pc of people who actually do get away from Ireland on a holiday.
For almost one third of people, wanting to spend time with a romantic partner was the reason for their holiday, putting us way ahead of the Italians and the French for romance: only 23pc in those countries gave this as a reason.
