Ireland Tops World's Sexiest Men Poll

New survey finds Irishmen north and south of the border are easiest on the eyes and ears of American women

It's often said that Americans are mad about the Irish, and now it's official. According to a new poll conducted by US 'travel dating' website MissTravel.com, men from Ireland are, indeed, the sexiest anywhere in the world.

Thousands of female MissTravel.com users elected the homeland of both frequent favourite Colin Farrell and new kid on the block Jamie Dornan as the world's number one, with no preference over which side of the border they hail from.

Ireland, therefore, topped the pole ahead of the voters' home country, as well as the rest of the British Isles – no mean feat, considering how often the likes of Channing Tatum and Tom Hardy shape similar surveys.

Though with accent a deciding factor in nearly half of those who opted for Irish men over any other nationality, it's hardly surprising – we're the world's sexiest in that field too.

The feeling wasn't mutual, however, from male users of the site, the majority of whom said it was Armenian women who did it for them. See the Top 10's in full below.
