Ireland extends 'a thousand million welcomes' to all of its visitors

**POLL CLOSED**

What is the friendliest town in Ireland? With Ireland being known as ‘the land of a hundred thousand welcomes,’ it’s pretty obvious that there’s no clear cut winner.

In 2018, Conde Nast Traveler asked their readers to nominate what they considered to be the most friendly cities in Europe. In the end, Irish cities ended up claiming three (yes, three!) of the top ten spots for most friendly cities with Cork, Dublin, and Waterford.

As it happens, Ireland annually determines its own friendliest city as well as part of the Retail Excellence Awards. In 2018,  Slane in Co Meath was named as the friendliest town, and in 2017, Ennis in Co Clare nabbed the top spot. 

So, readers, we now ask you - what do you think is the friendliest town or city in Ireland? Is it one of the above choices, or somewhere else?
