Describing Dublin, Rough Guides says: “Spend a weekend enjoying the Georgian townhouses, squares and historic churches among some of the friendliest people in the world”
Welcoming the news, Niall Gibbons, Tourism Ireland CEO, said: “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 Dublin and Ireland such a great choice for a short break or holiday.”
This latest accolade follows Dublin being voted the world’s fifth friendliest city earlier this year by readers of Condé Nast Traveler, the US travel magazine.
