Dublin voted fifth friendliest city on earth!


A US travel magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, has voted Dublin as the fifth friendliest city on earth!

Readers described our fair city as a “bibliophile’s dream”, aswell as being “green, lush, and very walkable”.

They also said it was “the kind of place you stop in for a drink in a local pub, only to end up chatting with the locals for the next five hours.”

  • Well, what can we say? We do try!
  • The top ten friendliest cities were:
  • Auckland, New Zealand
  • Melbourne, Australia
  • Victoria, BC, Canada
  • Charleston, South Carolina, US
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Siem Reap, Cambodia
  • Cape Town, South Africa
