It’s official! Thanks in no small part to Colin Farrell, the Irish accent is now the sexiest in the world.
The survey, which polled 5,000 women from around the world, revealed that Ireland is now tops for sexiest accent, beating out Italy and Scotland for the top spot.
Ireland has been in or around the top spot for five years but this is the first win for Ireland. A spokesman for the pollsters, OnePoll.com, said Colin Farrell was the main reason behind this.
“High-profile stars such as Colin Farrell have helped bring the accent more to the fore,” he said.
The study also found that 60 percent of women said an accent could seduce them while 40 percent said they would rather sleep with a man with a nice accent, rather than a harsh one.
