14. Ireland

Population: 4.8 million
Percentage of millionaire households: 2.2%

Ireland may be the land of Guinness beer but its wealthiest inhabitant is mobile phone mogul Denis O'Brien. After four years of severe austerity measures, Ireland's economy is slowly coming back on track. Despite the economic carnage and an unemployment rate that remains above 14 percent, Ireland still has more millionaires per capita than any other country in Europe except Belgium. The country's millionaire households numbered about 33,000.
