Irish accent is named sexiest in the world again – yeah, we own this one!

You may think you have heard this before, but once again the Irish accent has been named as the sexiest in the world.

A survey carried out by One Poll found that people still go weak at the knees when hearing the sweet tones of an Irish brogue.

Irish accent is named sexiest in the world again – yeah, we own this one!

More than 5,000 men and women were quizzed about various accents from around the world and it was the Irish one they considered to be the sexiest.

Ireland always appears high in these lists. We have sent countless hunks and babes out into the world such as Colin Farrell and Saoirse Ronan and they have made an impression with their charm and good looks.

There is also the romance associated with Ireland as a country that helps us sound sexy to the rest of the world.

Many people will be influenced by their own Irish heritage, and the emotions that their ancestors would have gone through when leaving Ireland to begin a new life elsewhere.

Throughout history, thousands of Irish people have had to leave their home to seek out better opportunities abroad, and several would have had to leave loved ones behind.

Such heart-breaking tales within family histories has left many with a deep sense of romance and warmth towards Ireland.

Add to that the suave, quiet power characterised by Cillian Murphy in Peaky Blinders, or the down-to-earth, girl-next-door cuteness of Aisling Bea in Living With Yourself, and you have one hell of a sexy accent in your ears.

As usual, Ireland was named above more established nations of romance such as France, Italy and America.

Here is the list of the top ten sexiest accents according to One Poll.

1. Irish
2. Italian
3. Scottish
4. French
5. Australian
6. English
7. Swedish
8. Spanish
9. Welsh
10. American
