A huge boost for the tourist industry. Ireland has topped a list of the World's Friendliest Countries in a survey drawn up by the Lonely Planet travel guide group. The survey found that visitors to Ireland are always 'in for a treat' and with 'The Troubles' ended, 'a cautious optimism reigns supreme, infecting the land once again with the sense that anything's possible'. Obviously, many of the posters on Politics.ie were not included in the survey, but its still excellent news.

It's great to hear, and ties nicely with our title as the world's best country in which to live. We're truly a great country.

We could get him, John Waters, Fintan O'Toole and a few other know it alls and have a mass debate cos their all a bunch of w*****s......

For the record freedomlover, I'm only obviously joking, I'm a very nice person in real life.

(Best run before Col. Cochrane notices this.....)

The trouble with these columnists is that have to search around for things to say to fill their quota - so they come out with any old crap, the more contraversial the better. There should be a mass-cull of them.

But they're sooo funny. Did you read Kevin's eulogy of Tony Ryan yesterday? Or his gibberish about wicked, base gays?

I worry about you sometimes. I really do.

I've oft hear people moaning about how rude and horrible the people in shops or people in general are in this country.
It leaves me wondering if I'm living in a different country. While I don't always get service with a smile I could count on one hand the times I've been subject to people being rude. And when that does happen they regret it afterwards!
I think the survey, it tells the truth.

Are "the troubles" over? Jeepers but the Lonely Planet are bang up to date aren't they.

The yellow bible is still crucial but I'd go with the Rough guides most of the time when traveling. Got about 12 of them.

"Read him?" Wouldn't waste my time. They should all be put out to work. Do something useful.

I'll start by responding to this post, note the sarcasm? Let's face it, if wasting time nd unproductive activity were banned, we'd all be out on our ear. If Myers gets people to buy the Indo (and he does) then he's worth it.

The researchers were obviously not in Dublin.
Here in Derry, if you hold a shop door open for a nice lady, you will generally get a smile.

Can the same be said of Dublin?

We have automated sliding doors here, they hold themselves open. You could call them extremely friendly doors
