The 2016 list of the friendliest cities in the world has been revealed, and Ireland comes out looking pretty good.

The website Conde Nast Traveler has been compiling this annual list for the last four years with their Readers’ Choice Awards survey to locate what cities make wanderers feel the most (and least) welcome.

Ireland came out well in the survey, with two entries on the list, but the US is the real winner here, with 10 cities making the cut.

10. Doha, Qatar

8. Detroit, US

7. Maputo, Mozambique

6. Caracas, Venezuela

5. Atlantic City, US
