What is the sexiest accent in Ireland?

An Irish accent is seen (or heard) by many people around the world as a thing of beauty.

Both men and women find themselves getting plenty of attention from admirers thanks to their accents in countries like the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia and more – that they don’t seem to get back home.

Of course, there isn’t just one Irish accent – there are several different ones all over the country. Irish people obviously have the best trained ears so which do they think is the sexiest?

Irish people have voted on which county has the sexiest county in Ireland

That was the question put forward in a survey by Lovin.ie. The answers will delight people in Co Derry who were voted to have the most attractive accent.

Other sexy Irish accents included the counties Kildare, Donegal, Limerick and Down. Co Kerry finished a surprisingly disappointing 11th on the list.

At the other end of the table it was bad news for people in Carlow, Westmeath, Longford and Louth who all finished in the bottom five.

However, the people with the least sexy Irish accent were those poor guys and girls from Co Laois who were 32nd out of the 32 counties.

Maybe the Americans, Brits, Canadians and Aussies have never met anyone from Laois!

Here is the full list of Irish counties with the sexiest accent to the least sexy:
