30 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

I've visited most countries in Europe and the Irish were the friendliest and most generous people by far. They're very genuine, I guess I'm partial to them because my grandmother was from there and was the kindest person I've ever known.

Even if their flag is like Italian one, Irish are friendly people, not like the arrogant Italians, who we didn't expect to find, but the reality is far from movies.

Why is Ireland not in the Top 10? Those are the friendliest, the nicest and the most polite people.

This should be so much higher! I’m from the United States and when I went to Ireland the first time I was shocked by how friendly and kind the people were. I’ll be going on my 4th trip to Ireland next month and couldn’t be more excited

We like French with or without foreign origins. Despite what you made read here or there, young people speak English well but also other European languages or even Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Arab.. especially in shops of large and medium cities. What I like with French, they have a lot of parties everywhere celebrating any anniversary or else, singing, dancing and inviting you to join... I did not find that in some other countries around.

I like French people, I visited about 8 different regions and they are all different (like their architecture), they are more or less open at the first contact, but some minutes after the icebreaker, they are friendly and warm. Easily they offer you a glass of wine or cup of coffee, don't refuse it.

France I swear France is the country where you find the friendliest people, but they are shy, once you break the ice, their heart is open to you. It's the first country for donations in the world.

I was in Paris last November and apart from one person at a Metro Station ticket office, everyone was very friendly, polite and helpful - I think it may have something to do with being polite as a tourist to begin with? France and French are too much stereotyped- And I'm British.
