Dublin has been ranked 20th out of the 55 'most reputable' cities in the world.

The Irish capital is up two places in the index compiled by The Reputations Agency and Reputation Institute.

Sydney tops the poll - followed by Vienna and Zurich.

Dublin ranks ahead of London (22nd), Paris (23rd), Berlin (29th) and Brussels (35th).

The study explores respondents' impression of cities across categories including levels of Trust, Esteem, Admiration and Respect - 20,600 people took part in the study.

An important area in which perceptions of Dublin have significantly improved since last year are financial stability and future growth potential.

Niall Quinn, Head of Corporate & Financial PR, The Reputations Agency, said:

"It is encouraging that Ireland’s capital city has seen both an improvement in its reputational score and ranking among the top international cities.

"With a renewed focus on alternatives to London post Brexit, and given the link between a city’s reputation and people’s willingness to visit, work, live and invest in that city, an enhanced reputation can only add to the attractiveness of Dublin as a possible location for businesses looking to relocate operations from the UK."
