Ireland “friendliest country in the world” according to travel company


Ireland is the world’s friendliest country, with people having “a deliciously dark sense of humour”, according to a best-travel list compiled by guidebook company Lonely Planet.

They left this touching tribute:

“Centuries of turmoil have certainly taken their toll on the Irish: they’ve been left with a deliciously dark sense of humour and a welcoming attitude towards strangers. That famous ability of the Irish – to find craic (fun times with convivial company) in boom or bust times – means you’re always in for a treat. These days, after the end of the ‘Troubles’, a cautious optimism reigns supreme, infecting the land once again with the sense that anything’s possible.”
