Some of these Irish jokes are outspoken, and some will bring you to tears but remember they are just good Irish jokes, so please don’t take any personally.

Okay, let’s begin this epic list of top Irish jokes:

“So the doctor gives the man the tablets, and the patient asks, “Do I have to take them every day?” No,” replies the doctor, “take one on a Monday, skip the Tuesday, take one on Wednesday, skip the Thursday and go on like that. “Two weeks later, the doctor walks down the street and sees the patient’s wife.” Hello Mrs Murphy,” he says, “how’s your husband?”

“Oh, he died of a heart attack,” says Mrs Murphy.

“I’m very sorry to hear that,” says the doctor, “I thought if he took those tablets, he would be all right.”, “Oh, the tablets were fine,” says Mrs Murphy,

2) Irish joke about the leprechaun:

irish bar joke (1)
An Irishman walks into a bar and asks for two beers. He then pulls a small green-skinned man out of his pocket and puts him on the counter.

As he’s drinking one drink and the green man is drinking the other, an Englishman down the bar who has had too many drinks says, “Hey, what’s that little green thing down there?”
The green man runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a
raspberry, “SPLBLBLBLT!,” right in the face and runs back to
the Irishman.
The Englishman mops himself off and says to the Irishman,

“Hey, what is that thing, anyway?”

The Irishman replies, “Have some respect. He’s a leprechaun.”

“Oh, all right.” the Englishman says sullenly. They all go
back to drinking beer.
An hour or so later, the Englishman is plastered.
“Boy, that leprechaun sure is an ugly little bastard!” he says.

The leprechaun runs down the bar and gives the Englishman a
raspberry again, “SPLBLBLBLBT!”
This time the Englishman is really mad!

willie right off, I will!” he shouts.

“Could you please show me a clever way to make this into nine?”

After thinking for a while, the Irishman took the pencil, drew a canopy of leaves on top of the three pairs of lines, and handed the paper back to the interviewer.

The interviewer looked at the drawings and said: “But that is not nine!”

“Oh yes, it is”, said the Irishman with a broad Irish accent, “Tree + Tree + Tree make nine!”
The interviewer returned the paper to the Irishman and asked him to make it 99.

Furious and confused, he went to see his grandmother and said, “Gran ’tis my 18th birthday. So why can’t I walk across the water, like my father, me grandfather, and his father before him?” Grandma looked deep into Sean’s troubled eyes, looked at him with kind, benevolent eyes and said,

Mick could hardly believe it. Same address in Dublin, same doctor. Thinking that he had been ripped off, he asked Paddy if he could have a look. Once more, they lined up at the stainless steel and when Mick took a peek, the worried frown which had creased his face disappeared, and he started laughing.

The Irishman is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The Italian lawyer persists and says that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me only €5.00 then you ask me one, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you €500.00, he says. This catches the Irishman’s attention, and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.

Now, it’s the Irishman’s turn.

He asks the lawyer, ‘What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?’ The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he can find on Google. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After over an hour of searching, he finally gives up. He wakes up the Irishman and hands him €500.00. The Irishman pockets the €500.00 and goes right back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts, not knowing the answer. He wakes the Irishman up and asks, ‘Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?’ The Irishman reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5.00 and goes back to sleep.

Don’t mess with the Irish!

bank of ireland - irish joke (1)

An elderly woman walked into the Bank of Ireland one morning with a purse full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on talking to the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money. After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the president’s office. The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied, ‘$165,000’. The president was curious and asked her how she had been able to save so much money. The elderly woman replied that she made bets.

The president was surprised and asked, ‘What kind of bets?’ The elderly woman replied, ‘Well, I bet you $10,000 that your testicles are square.’ The president started to laugh and told the woman that it was impossible to win a bet like that. The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the president and said, ‘Would you like to take my bet?’ ‘Certainly’, replied the president. ‘I bet you $10,000 that my testicles are not square.’ ‘Done’, the elderly woman answered. ‘But given the amount of money involved, if you don’t mind, I would like to come back at 10′ clock tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness.’

‘No problem’, said the president of the Bank confidently.

That night, the president became very nervous about the bet and spent a long time in front of the mirror examining his testicles, turning them this way and that, checking them over again and again until he was positive that no one could consider his testicles as square and reassuring himself that there was no way he could lose the bet. The next morning at exactly 10 o’clock, the elderly woman arrived at the president’s office with her lawyer and acknowledged the $10,000 bet made the day before that the president’s testicles were square. The president confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made the day before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his pants etc. so that she and her lawyer could see clearly.

The president was happy to oblige. The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked the president if she could touch them. ‘Of course’, said the president. ‘Given the amount of money involved, you should be 100% sure.’ The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the president noticed that the lawyer was banging his head against the wall. He asked the elderly woman why he was doing that, and she replied, ‘Oh, it’s probably because I bet him $100,000 that around 10 o’clock this morning I would be holding the balls of the President of the Bank of Ireland’

“You’ve done very well so far,” said Chris Tarrant, the show’s presenter, “but for a million euros, you’ve only got one lifeline left, phone a friend. Everything is riding on this question. Will you go for it?”

“Sure,” said Mick. “I’ll have a go!”

“Which of the following birds does NOT build its own nest?

a) Sparrow

b) Thrush,

c) Magpie,

d) Cuckoo

“I haven’t got a clue.” said Mick, “So I’ll use the last lifeline and phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin ..”

Mick called up his mate, told him the circumstances and repeated the question to him.

“Fookin hell, Mick!” cried Paddy. “Dat’s simple. It’s a cuckoo.”

“Are you sure?”

“I’m fookin sure.”

Mick hung up the phone and told Chris, “I’ll go with cuckoo as my answer.”

“Is that your final answer?” asked Chris.

“Dat it is.”

There was a long, long pause and then the presenter screamed, “Cuckoo is the correct answer! Mick, you’ve won 1 million euros!”

The next night, Mick went round to Paddy’s to buy him a drink.

“Tell me, Paddy? How in Heaven’s name did you know it was da Cuckoo that doesn’t build its own nest?”

“Because he lives in a Fookin clock!”

39) 100lb’s of dynamite 

bodybuilder irish jokes dynamite

An Irish bodybuilder takes off his shirt, and the blonde woman says: 

Wow what a great chest you have! 

He says 

100 lbs of dynamine babe! 

He then takes off his pants, and the blonde says

Wow what massive calves you have!

He says

100 lbs of dynamine babe! 

He then removes his underwear, and the blonde goes running, screaming in fear. 

He puts on his clothes and chases behind her. Once he eventually caught up to her, he asked why the hell she ran away like that. 

The blonde replied: 

I was afraid to be around all that dynamite when I saw how short the fuse was! 

40) Paddy and Murphy are on a cruise. 

Paddy and Murphy are on a cruise. 

Murphy says It’s awfully quiet on deck tonight. 

Paddy says, Sure, everyone is probably watching the band.”

Murphy says, There isn’t a band playing tonight.

Paddy says, But I definitely heard some fecker say 

A band on ship 

41) The Irish gambler on the building site. 

The new man is hired at a building site. Every day he arrives in a top-spec Mercedes. The other builders are wondering how he could afford it and start hassling the foreman, thinking he must be getting better pay. After a few days of hassle, the foreman asks him what the story is.

Foreman: How can you afford that car?

New man: I’m a gambler. If I thought I’d make money, I’d gamble on two flies going up a wall.

Foreman: But how can you make money? Surely you must lose every now and then?

New man: Nope! I always make money. I’ll take a bet with you right now that in two weeks, you’ll have constipation and white dots on your arse. €200, what do you say?

So the foreman takes the bet. And he’s careful. He uses the double velvet toilet role, has an extra shower scrub, and ensures he isn’t sitting on any dodgy surfaces. After the fortnight is up, he goes to collect his money.

New man: I have to check, don’t I? Can’t just take your word for it.

The foreman isn’t pleased, but he wants the €200, so he allows an inspection. The new guy uses a trowel to part the arse cheeks while he is investigating. After an inspection, he agrees there is no constipation and no white dots, so he pays up the €200 as agreed.

Foreman: How do you make money??!! Taking a stupid bet like that. How the heck does that work?

New man: I didn’t tell you this, but I took a bet with every man on the site I’d have your arse on a trowel today……! 😅🤣🤣

42) A Skilled Irish worker in Canada

the irish Lumberjack joke

A large Canadian lumber company advertised that they were looking for a good Lumberjack.

The very next day, a skinny Irishman showed up at the company with his axe and knocked on the Foreman’s door.

The Foreman took one look at the small Irishman and told him to leave. “Just give me a chance to show you what I can do,” said the Irishman.

“Okay, see that giant redwood over there?” said the Foreman. “Take your axe and go cut it down.”

The Irishman headed for the tree, and in five minutes, he was back knocking on the Foreman’s door.

“I cut the tree down,” said the Irishman.

Holy smokes!” Said the Foreman. “Where did you get the skill to chop down trees like that?”

“In the Sahara Forest,” replied the Irishman.

Confused, the Forman asked, “… don’t you mean the Sahara Desert?”

“Oh… Is that what they call it now?”

43) The Irish man comes home from work

A man comes home from an exhausting day at work, plops down on the couch in front of the television, and tells his wife, “Get me a Guinness before it starts.” The wife sighs and gets him a Guinness. Fifteen minutes later, he says, “Get me another before it starts.” She looks cross but fetches another Guinness and slams it down next to him. He finishes that one and a few minutes later says, “Quick, get me another; it’s going to start any minute.” The wife is furious. She yells at him, “Is that all you’re going to do tonight? Drink beer and sit in front of that TV? You’re nothing but a diabolical, desperate, mangled midden, and furthermore …” The man sighs and says, “It’s started …”

44) Garda pulls over a speeding car:

A garda pulls over a speeding car. He says, “I clocked you at 80 miles per hour, sir.” The driver says, “Are you sure? I had it on cruise control at 60; perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating.” Not looking up from her knitting, the wife says: “Now don’t be silly dear, you know that this car doesn’t have cruise control.” As the garda writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, “Can’t you please keep your mouth shut for once?” The wife smiles demurely and says, “You should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did.” As the garda makes out the second ticket for the illegal use of a radar detector unit*, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, “Woman, didn’t I tell you to keep your mouth shut!” The garda frowns and says, “And I notice that you’re not wearing your seat belt, Sir. That’s an on-the-spot 60 euro fine. “The driver says, “Well, you see, sir, I had it on but took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket.” The wife says, “Now, dear, you know very well that you didn’t have your seat belt on.

You never wear your seat belt when you’re driving.” And as the garda is writing out the third ticket, the driver turns to his wife and barks, “WHY DON’T YOU PLEASE SHUT UP??” The garda looks over at the woman and asks, “Does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma’am?” Smiling sweetly, she replies. Only when he’s been drinking, Sir.”

*While it is legal to own a radar detector in the Republic of Ireland, it is illegal to use it.

45) The holy cow 

The wise old Mother Superior from county Tipperary was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed, trying to make her comfortable. They gave her some warm milk to drink, but she refused it. Then one nun took the glass back to the kitchen. Remembering a bottle of Irish whiskey received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened and poured a generous amount into the warm milk. Back at Mother Superior’s bed, she held the glass to her lips. Mother drank a little, then a little more. Before they knew it, she had drunk the whole glass down to the last drop. Mother,” the nuns asked with earnest,

“Please give us some wisdom before you leave us. “She raised herself up in bed with a pious look on her face and said, “Don’t sell that cow.”

46) The window company 

The man from the window company called Miss O’Leary on the telephone. “Miss O’Leary, he says, you haven’t made a single payment on your new windows. Is there something the matter?” Bristling with annoyance, Miss O’Leary replies. “I may be up in years, but I still have my wits about me. Wasn’t your man after telling me those windows would pay for themselves in a year?

47) The Kerry Furniture dealer Goes To France.

A furniture dealer from Kerry decided that he wanted to expand the line of furniture in his store, so he decided to go to Paris, France, to see what he could find. After arriving in Paris (this being his first trip ever to the French capital), he met with some manufacturers and finally selected a line that he thought would sell well back home in Kerry.

To celebrate the new acquisition, he decided to visit a small bistro and have a glass of wine. As he sat enjoying his wine, he noticed that the small place was quite crowded and that the one other chair at his table was the only vacant seat in the house. Before long, a very beautiful young Parisian girl came to his table, asked him something in French (which he did not understand), and motioned toward the chair. He invited her to sit down. He tried to speak to her in English, but she did not speak his language, so after a couple of minutes of trying to communicate with her, he took a napkin and drew a picture of a wine glass and showed it to her. She nodded, and he ordered a glass of wine for her. 

After sitting together at the table for a while, he took another napkin and drew a picture of a plate with food on it, and she nodded. They left the bistro and found a quiet cafe that featured a small group playing romantic music. They ordered dinner, after which he took another napkin and drew a picture of a couple dancing. She nodded, and they got up to dance. They danced until the cafe closed, and the band was packing up. Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of a four-poster bed.

To this day, he has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business.😂😂😂😂😂😂

48) Another language 

A European tourist is lost and stops in an Irish village to ask for directions. He sees two old men sitting outside the pub enjoying their Guinness. “Parlez-vous Francais, he asks. The old men look at each other and shake their heads. “Sprechen sie Deutsch?” Again, the old men shake their heads. Beginning to get a bit irritated, the tourist asks, “Habla Espanol?” The men once again shake their heads.

Totally exasperated by now, the tourist asks, “Parla Italiano?” The men once again look at each other and then shake their heads in puzzlement. The tourist is so disgusted that he drives off. One old man says to the other, “You know, Sean, perhaps we should learn another language.” “Ah, get on with yeh; look at him, he knows four, and it didn’t do him a bit of good.”

49) Under the mistletoe

Mary was a pretty redhead shopping in Dundrum. In the week before Christmas, she sauntered up to the counter and was trying to decide which of the many types of tinsel she would buy. Finally, she made her choice and asked the shop assistant called Mick, “How much is this gold tinsel?”

Mick seeing the pretty girl, said, “This week we have a special offer, just one kiss per metre.”

“Wow, that’s grand”, said Mary. “I’ll take 12 metres.”

With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, Mick measured out the tinsel and gave it to Mary.

After Mick handed her the bag, Mary said, “My Grandpa will settle the bill.”

50) Three brewmasters

The brewmasters of 3 major beer companies decide to step away from a beer festival and go to a local pub…

The first was from Mexico. He walks in, approaches the bar and says, “Hola bartender, I would like to have the finest beer in the world. Give me a Dos Equis, por favor.”

The second was from Holland. “Bartender, give me the finest beer in the world, a Heineken.”

The third was the head of Guinness brewery at St. James Gate in Dublin. He takes a look around and then orders, “Bartender, I’ll have a Coke, please.”

The other two give a puzzled look and finally ask, “Why a Coke?” The brewmaster from Guinness answers, “Well, I figured if you lads weren’t drinking beer yet, I could hold off for a wee bit.”
