Search engine developed by Microsoft. Just like our number one searched website, bing offers searches in web, image, video, local, news, and also provides product searches. Bing is the default search engine with Microsoft phones. These phones were formally made by Nokia which was Irelands favourite mobile phone manufacturer for many years. Irish are always loyal and have bought many Nokia Lumias owing to their loyalty to Nokia so by default, they now commonly use bing as their search engine.

RTE – for Irish news and more importantly, the rte player which lets Ireland catch up on all the Irish TV that they missed out on!

#17 Reddit.com

The 17th most viewed website is Reddit

Reddit was one of the first websites to be based on allowing users to post something and vote for the post to get to the first page. This is basically what is done by the number one viewed website in Ireland, google, except google has to work very hard to give the most important websites or posts to you when you carry out a search…

#16 Independent.ie

The 16th most viewed website is the Independent News Paper

The independent was the most purchased daily newspaper in Ireland for many years and their website version of the newspaper is number 16 on the most viewed websites by Irish readers in 2016. The daily and Sunday online newspaper is still obviously one of the most important sources of news for Irish readers daily.

#14 Donedeal.ie

The number 14 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: Done Deal

Set up by a Wexford duo, done deal got in early and secured the love of many Irish online buyers and sellers. It still has the highest Irish website spot for Irish online traders. You can buy anything from and Galway car to an Cork pair of socks and everything inbetween. Many Irish website users only use the internet to check their emails or check the prices of things on donedeal – we all know someone that fits this description!

#13 Msn.com

The number 13 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: MSN.com

Die hard Irish viewers still access their outlook (or older hotmail) email account through msn, The fact that hotmail used to be accessed through msn is one of the reasons that Irish viewers got used to seeing the Irish and worldwide news through the msn protal. This is one of the many reasons that so many people still check into MSN on a daily basis to give it such a high position on the Irish top website list.

#12 AIB.ie

The number 12 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: AIB

AIB is one of the biggest Irish banks and is used by many commercial bank holders. Many small to medium Irish businesses use AIB and use their online banking website to manage their payroll, accounts transfers and more. This combined with the many Irish households that use AIB for their mortgage account and personal banking makes the position of AIB’s website a site that is just shy of the top ten Irish viewed websites.

#11 Theladbible.com

 

The number 11 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: The Lad Bible

The Lad Bible was Established in May 2012 and is a website that has had many posts through facebook and other social networking sites go completely viral. It has a name for shocking readers with witty and sometimes a little over the line articles and images. The Irish have always enjoyed a laugh and it shows by this website grabbing such a large amount of Irish readers.

THE TOP FIVE

The top top 5 websites viewed in Ireland are as follows:

#5 Yahoo.com
The reason that this website tends to be a major choice of website for viewers in Ireland is mainly down to the fact that it is the default search engine of Mozilla Firefox. Firefox it the preferred browser for many people including many computer professionals. That means that the person who fixed or installed your operating system will usually only use Internet Explorer to download a different browser to make his or her life easier while installing your computers necessary programs. …Of course, yahoo is liked too!
#4 Facebook.com
There is lots of other social networks but few even make any list in Ireland, let alone the top 20 websites viewed in Ireland. The movie ‘The Social Network’ gave most a little insight to how this website became THE social network all over the world. Facebook has over 1.65 billion worldwide monthly users, it’s fair to say that Mark Zuckerberg made a few quid from this website. If you feel you have the next winning website idea, be sure to phone Arrow Design as we’d love to help :)
#3 Youtube.com
YouTube is the website we Irish love to turn to when looking for videos of all types. From ‘how to preform brain surgery’ to ‘shelbourne fc vs cabinteely’, if we need the movie we are going here. Youtube is that small website that was purchased by Google for US$1.65 billion in November 2006. This puts google the owner of Irelands top 3 most viewed websites – pretty impressive for two guys that started their company in a garage.
#2 Google.com
Google.com is usually the default search engine address when your Internet browser is installed. Google Ireland can easily be changed to your home address but many don’t bother to do so as they are happy to use google.com. If you use Google Chrome as your browser, you can easily change your homepage to google Ireland by clicking here. (the address for google.ie is http://google.ie )
#1 Google.ie

Arguably the most used search engine in the world. No real argument from Ireland as we use it here more than any other website, let alone search engine! Google.ie is the website address of Google Ireland which tries to give better results to Irish searchers. A website that is deemed a better result to an Irish person is a website that is Irish based or a website that is of the most interest to an Irish based viewer.

FROM 15 TO 10

15 to 10, these websites are known and loved by many in Ireland.

#10 Amazon.co.uk

 

The number 10 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: Amazon.co.uk

Amozon is used by Kindle users by default and is the source of many a good book prior to the summer holidays but is also widely used to source anything from Dublin Football jerseys to Kilkenny made hurles. Put simply, Amazon is used by Irish website users to buy books, movies, music,electronics, toys, makeup, shoes and so much more.

#9 Linkedin.com
The number 9 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: Linkedin.com

Linkedin or the professional version of facebook as it is sometimes known is the website that helps Irish users get employment. That being said, it is common practice for potential employers to review facebook profiles too so don’t be under the illusion that anything you put online is not going to be the subject of a chat during an interview… LinkedIn is still a great networking tool and it is easy to see why it is widely used in Ireland.

#8 Live.com
The number 8 website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: Live.com

Live.com is basically our portal to hotmail which remains one of the most used email address that is chosen by Irish users. There are many reasons for live also being used, not least the fact that it is the default homepage for Internet Explorer. People who work in an office, especially banks and insurance companies, will be used to the more used to seeing live.com. This is because it is supported by Microsoft so it is unlikely that you will be seeing a difference in this trend any time soon.

#7 Twitter.com
The number 7th website that is the most viewed website by Irish readers is: Twitter.com

Twitter is used more for small tit bits of information and is mainly viewed by Irish viewers to stay updated with news – all the time. It is often used more for searching for trending toppings of strangers that that of people that are part of your network circle. That being said, people tend to retweet (share) the most interesting information that they find to their circles so it is still similar to the more preferred facebook.

#6 Wikipedia.org

Once upon a time Irish families had a dusty set of Encyclopedia books in the corner that was written by a professor somewhere and verified by teams of people. Wikipedia changed all that. Now you can write an explanation for what every you feel you are an expert on and get it published :) Its actually not as bad as that with critique and criticism coming from all angles so people tend to only write on subjects they ARE experts on.
