    I live in Dublin, Ireland – love this “deliciously dark sense of humour” – totally agree :)

  3. I truly believe that Ireland is the friendliest that I’ve been too. Met a couple older ladies during a stroll who would’ve talked to me for hours about the history of Ireland if I didn’t have to run off.

    Yes definitely I am always saying this! If you’re out on a walk people always say hello it’s so refreshing and people were so chatty in the pub, go Ireland!!
