Posted on 25 September 2014

Dublin city

Dublin has been named the second friendliest city in the world. According to a survey of Facebook followers undertaken by renowned travel site, Rough Guides, Dublin is in second place behind Glasgow, Scotland.

The site featured a beautiful shot of the Ha’penny Bridge over the Liffey on a sun-soaked day in Dublin to announce the news, and urged visitors to the city to take in the Georgian architecture, and beautiful historic places around town while they were here.

Other cities in the top ten include Melbourne, Manchester, Montreal, Tokyo, and Copenhagen.

Ireland was also named the tenth happiest country in the world in a World Happiness Report conducted by the UN earlier this year.

With the youngest population of any European capital city (more than 40% of residents are under 30), Dublin is an especially vibrant city, making it even more attractive to visitors.
