Do You Know Where Ireland Is?


The UK has just one land border (Northern Ireland shares a land border with the Republic of Ireland). With only this one land border you would think that the residents of the UK would be able to identify Ireland on a map.

Unfortunately 1 in 10 Britons can't accurately identify the Republic of Ireland on an atlas. 10% of Britons taking GoCompare's 'How Well Do You Know Europe' online quiz weren't able to correctly identify Ireland. 4% actually thought it was Denmark and 2% thought it was Iceland.

If you head over to How Well Do You Know Europe you can try the multiple-choice quiz for yourself. On average Americans get 5 out of 10 questions correct. The British average is 6.5 correct answers. When you have completed the quiz you are told how many countries you identified correctly and how your geographical knowledge compares to other UK and US players.
