Romantic getaways have been found to be more popular than party breaks according to a new survey.

The study by Direct Holidays Ireland revealed that people prefer to go away with their other half rather than a group of friends.

In fact almost 90 per cent of people said they would choose a romantic trip for two over a wild week of partying with friends.

Even sweeter is the fact that a third of couples said that they had whisked their other half away for a surprise break in the past.

Women were found to be more likely to ditch their men for a break away with friends and picked Irish Rugby player Tommy Bowe as the man they would most like to fly off on holiday with.
