Top 10 hilariously funny Irish jokes that will get the whole pub laughing

We all love a good Irish joke, so here are ten hilariously funny Irish jokes that will get the whole pub laughing.

Irish people never take themselves too seriously. If we got easily offended, then Irish jokes wouldn’t even exist, so let’s be thankful we are a super chilled bunch with a twisted sense of humour.

The Irish are always the butt of the jokes, especially with the Paddy Irishman jokes, in which Paddy is always made out to be a right eejit.

It’s always so funny to us because we all know someone who resembles Paddy – not to name names, of course –  but when there’s some truth to it, it becomes hysterical.

We could talk for Ireland when it comes to telling Irish jokes, but for now, we are going to take a look at some of the best and funniest ones out there. Here are ten hilariously funny Irish jokes that will get the whole pub laughing.

“Okay pedestrians,” he said. “Let’s go.”
