Anyone looking for reasons to jump on ferries from Liverpool to Dublin
for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend may find one of them is the cheaper cost of staying overseas.
Booking a hotel stay in Britain that weekend is set to be very expensive, with premiums of up to 223 per cent higher than the norm, a study by Santander has found.
In London, the typical hotel price will be hiked by 54 per cent for the occasion, while in Edinburgh the mark up will be 28 per cent.
With Ireland being a republic, there will be no such celebrations and people can simply go and enjoy Dublin and its goings on.
Those who enjoy their Irish coffee can actually enjoy a whole event dedicated to it - the Foynes Irish Coffee Festival in the small coastal town of Foynes in Limerick.
This can be reached by travelling westward across the county to the Shannon Estuary area.
