Valentine’s Day has just passed and with this in mind leading insurance broker, www.chill.ie , has released the results of a survey amongst 449 Irish men and women who were asked to identify Ireland’s most romantic drive.
The winner was the Dingle Peninsula with 34% of respondents believing this is the ideal place to take a long and loved-up outing in the car.
The study also quizzed the male respondents on where in Ireland they would propose to the love of their life. Out of the 222 replies, the fellas voted Kerry as being the most desirable place to get down on one knee with Dublin and Galway following close behind in second and third place.
Overall, the majority of respondents considered Ireland’s stunning towns and counties to be the perfect backdrop for asking the important question - “Will you marry me?”
Head of Marketing for Chill Insurance, Fergal Lynch says, "Ireland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and as the results of this survey show, a large number of people consider it to be the perfect romantic setting, especially for marriage proposals."
Chill insurance performed the survey not only to celebrate Valentine's Day but also to remind Irish people about road safety and the responsibilities drivers have when they are behind the wheel.
