Tourism Ireland welcomes news that Dublin is voted third friendliest cities in the world – by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine.
Three Irish cities, Galway, Dublin and Cork have made it into the top four friendliest cities in the world in the annual reader survey of Travel Leisure, a major US travel magazine based in New York. Galway is in first position, with Dublin and Cork coming in third and fourth place respectively. The hope is that the North County will be a beneficiary of Dublin’s great result, with visitors flocking to our area.
Every year, Travel + Leisure asks its readers to weigh in on their favourite cities around the globe, in its annual World’s Best Awards – its annual reader survey which rates destinations and travel providers. The magazine has unveiled the results of its
2015 survey, including its list of the world’s friendliest cities.
Welcoming the news, Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “I am delighted to see three of our cities appear in the prestigious Travel + Leisure survey of friendly cities around the globe. It is another well-deserved accolade for Galway, Dublin and Cork. 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. This accolade by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine gives Tourism Ireland another great platform to continue to promote our cities and Ireland around the world as a ‘must-see’ destination.”
