    I don't know if I can say Irish, because I have one, but I'm going to go deeper and say accents from Dublin and Fermanagh.
    Also females with RP (posh English) - males sound snobbish.
    Manc accents are pretty cool, although that may just be Philip Glenister's in Ashes to Ashes/Life on Mars.

    Hate cockney, male RP, American.
    That's my accent Albeit it'slessened since school :P

    Favourite - Russian people when they speak English(I don't know why I just think it sounds cool)

    Least Favourite - probably scouse accent(Jamie carraghers accent I find the most annoying)

    Hope I didn't offend anyone.

    I loveeeee Spanish, French, Canadian, Korean, typical American accents, Australian, South African but I don't really hate any, I don't like the sound of German itself but the accent is cool when they speak English.

    As per title, what accent do you love and which one do you hate ?

    Personally I rather like the Russian accent and have a special dislike for the American one, especially the Californian one.
    Love: Australian, Dutch, French (sometimes)
    Hate: Geordie, Scouse (because I can't understand them)

    I love Eastern European accents, especially Polish, and South African accents. I don't think I actually hate any though
