FOR such a small country, the Emerald Isle certainly has its fair share of unique accents.
But which one is most attractive? According to a new survey, conducted by Lovin.ie, Co. Derry is the home of Ireland’s sexiest brogue.
Derry is the home county of stars such as actors James Nesbitt, Roma Downey and Amanda Burton, singer Nadine Coyle and legendary rock band The Undertones.
People from Kildare were revealed to have the second most attractive accent in the country.
Ulster counties feature prominently in the list – with Co. Donegal ranked number three, Co. Down ranked number five and Co. Tyrone voted in eighth place.

Co. Roscommon, home to Irish actor and comedian Chris O’Dowd, was number 10 on the list.
The light-hearted research described Co. Antrim natives, including everyone from Portrush to west Belfast, as: “Everyone is just Gerry Adams”.
Ireland’s least-attractive accent was Co. Laois at number 32, closely followed by counties Louth and Longford.
