Ireland has been announced as tenth in a study of the top places to be vegetarian in Europe.

Conducted by comparison site The Eco Experts, the study looked into how easy it is to be a herbivore in twenty six European countries.

According to The Independent, the ranks were decided based on the number of vegetarian-friendly restaurants per 100,000 people, as well as yearly meat consumption per person and the average price of 1kg of meat.

The UK bagged the fifth spot on the list, which is no surprise seeing as research published last month suggests that 7 per cent of British people now identify as vegan.

According to Professor Carolyn Roberts, who supported the results of the study: “Estimates suggest that if all of our meat eaters switched to a vegan diet, it would roughly halve total greenhouse gas emissions associated with food.”

The top 10 list is as follows:

  1. Switzerland
  2. Finland
  3. Norway
  4. Sweden
  5. United Kingdom
  6. Belgium
  7. Hungary
  8. Italy
  9. Estonia
  10. Ireland
