It’s that time of year again when you might be contemplating your options as to the most romantic Irish location to visit on Valentine’s Day. According to a survey conducted by the supermarket chain Tesco, Bailieborough in Co Cavan has been named the most romantic town in Ireland.
According to the grocery retail giant more Valentine’s chocolates and gifts are sold at their Tesco store in Bailieborough than in any other Irish town, generally purchased by the wives and girlfriends.
The Tesco survey revealed that as much as a third of all customers in the store purchase a Valentine’s Day treat for their special other in the days and week leading up to the most romantic day of the year.
Bailieborough was closely followed in second position by Arklow in County Wicklow with men topping the females on this occasion by buying more cards and flowers than at any other of their stores in Ireland.
At the other end of the spectrum, however, if you happen live in either Dublin City or Cork City centre then it looks like you’re out of luck if you’re anxiously waiting for a Valentine’s card this year. Tesco’s survey labelled both of these locations as having the least romantic inhabitants.
