Nearly a third of Irish people have developed a greater appreciation of Ireland since the Covid-19 pandemic began last year, according to research conducted by Circle K.

The study also found that 27 percent of people are more excited about this summer than ever before and that 51 percent of people are planning a staycation over the next few months. 45 percent of those polled plan on taking a few weekend breaks this summer to see more of Ireland.

When asked what they missed the most indoor dining in pubs and restaurants came out on top at 54 percent, with concerts at 31 percent.

The survey was carried out to celebrate the reveal of Circle K’s new name for its Froster range, K-Freeze. Circle K’s K-Freeze range is now available in all stores nationwide, excluding Circle K Express.

Joanne D’Arcy, Director of Market Development at Circle K Ireland said: “It’s great to see that so many people are planning to staycation this summer, with some exciting trips and destinations on the cards. We’re looking forward to welcoming holidaymakers to our network of stores across Ireland and encourage them to pick up a refreshing K-Freeze at one of our stores on their travels.

“Myself and my colleagues are excited to reveal a brand new, exciting look and name for the summer months with K-Freeze. Even with a fresh name and look, it’s the same great, refreshing product and delicious flavours that the Irish public have come to love.”

The new look drink is available now in Circle K stores across Ireland.
