Ireland Consumer Confidence  1996-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

The KBC Bank Ireland/ESRI consumer sentiment index edged up to 102 in April 2017 from 101.9 in March. It was the highest reading in four months, as the outlook for the Irish economy improved to the highest level since last August. However, household expectations about their personal finances worsened noticeably and the scope for any substantial 'feel-good'-driven pick-up in consumer spending appears limited. Consumer Confidence in Ireland averaged 86.85 from 1996 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 130.90 in January of 2000 and a record low of 39.60 in July of 2008.
