A list of the Safest Countries in the World is released every year by the Institute for Economics and Peace. The Global Peace Index contains a list of 163 regions across the globe that are ranked based on domestic and international conflict, the militarization of the country, and discord with a nation related to political stability and crime.


1. Ireland

In 2018, Ireland was slightly safer than the year before, but it remained in the 10th spot. All information indicates Ireland is politically stable, has a low chance of political terror, and is involved in funding UN peacekeeping across the globe. So, if you enjoy green spaces, friendly bars, Irish music, dark beers, folklore, and history, you may want to consider a visit to the Emerald Isle.
