On World Tourism Day, we took a vote on whether or not Ireland is a tourist-friendly country.
For decades, Ireland has taken pride in the fact that we offer our visitors a “céad míle fáilte” (one hundred thousand welcomes) and it seems that plenty of others have noticed how we do our best to make sure everyone feel at home, wherever they may come from.
TripAdvisor recently came out with a list of countries ranked in terms of excellent service, with Ireland coming in at the number two spot for travelers. Travel+Leisure also pinned us as one of the friendliest places for tourists in the world and so for World Tourism Day, we decided to ask you, the people who love Ireland best, whether thought Ireland was good for tourists or not. A remarkable 90% agreed!
Happy World Tourism Day! Do you think Ireland is a tourist-friendly country? 🇮🇪#WorldTourismDay— IrishCentral (@IrishCentral) September 27, 2018
In a poll run across Twitter, Instagram and our website, 90% said: "yes, Ireland is a tourist-friendly country" while 9% said no. One percent said they were yet to find out but looked forward to visiting Ireland.
“Ireland is a lovely country and I enjoy visiting it but there are a couple of concerns,” said one voted.
“One is cost factors depending on what part of the US one is from and I know that it is expensive for me and second as a solo traveler trying to find reasonably priced accommodation is almost impossible.
“If there was a third reason, it would be for those in wheelchairs.”
