Reiterating Ireland’s prestige as one of the top places to visit in the world, Dublin was recently named the “favorite worldwide city” at the Trazee Awards in Orlando, Florida.

Owned by Global Traveler magazine, trazee.com set out to find the hip and swanky destinations of 18 to 35-year-olds. Bringing nominations from web contributors and readers alike, Trazee announced Dublin earned the top spot, with Aer Lingus also nabbing “favorite airline in Europe.”

Speaking after the announcement, Orla Carroll, Director of Dublin for Fáilte Ireland said, “This award is a fantastic accolade for Dublin which proves that our capital has something unique and extraordinary to offer the young and discerning traveler. Fáilte Ireland and the Dublin Tourism Industry have been working hard to reposition Dublin as a destination that offers unforgettable experiences to the young, adventurous traveler.”

Alison Metcalfe of Tourism Ireland spoke of the spell Dublin has cast on young travelers saying, “These young independent travelers are open to traveling for shorter breaks and are looking for cities that offer vibrant and distinctive cultural experiences.” ♦
