Dublin and Cork have also made it into the top four in the annual reader survey of Travel and Leisure, a major US travel magazine based in New York.
Making Ireland the friendliest country in the world
Not only that but Sydney and Melbourne are also in the list. We sure like to pick friendly places to live in :)
Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said today:
Again and again, our research shows us that the friendliness of our people is one of our unique selling points. It is the warm welcome and the ‘craic’ here that resonates with our overseas visitors and makes our cities, and the island of Ireland, such a great choice for a short break or holiday.
Well done Ireland + Australia!
