American women love Irish men – but American men don’t fancy Irish women according to an online dating site for tourists!

That’s the shocking results of a new romantic survey carried out by the website and published by the CNN Travel site.

CNN reports that voters have named Irish men as second only to the British in the global eye candy rankings.

But Irish women failed to make the top 10 in the female poll, topped by Columbian beauties.
The website says that travelers looking for eye candy on holiday can forget about Asia, Africa, Australasia and any of the Pacific islands.

The survey of American tourists has picked out British men and Colombian women as the world’s sexiest.

The top 10 nations on both lists are dominated by Europe and South America.

The website says: “British men will be applauding those behind the survey for finally putting some science behind what they’ve been proclaiming about themselves ever since Roger Moore strapped on a leather holster and destroyed female inhibition with a single eyebrow.

“Others may be wondering how any man who goes lobster-red after five minutes in the sun while struggling to suppress his pendulous beer gut can still exude the kind of confidence normally reserved for athletes, Hollywood extras and Colombian women.

“Colombian women, of course, have rightfully been heralded in the number one spot. We’re all much safer that way.”

Nearly 31,000 women were polled for the survey and they placed Irish men the second sexiest with Brazilians third, Swedes fourth and their fellow Americans fifth.

Incredibly, Italian men failed to make the list.

Some 13,000 American men took part in the survey and voted for Colombian women in first place with Brazilians in second spot followed by Americans, Spanish and Russians. brands itself as an ‘online dating site for travelers’ and hooks up wealthy frequent flyers with ‘poor but attractive travel wannabes’.

The site says: “We match generous travelers who hate to travel alone with attractive travelers who would love the opportunity to travel the world for free.”
