Irish occasions call for Irish party games! We love dreaming up entertaining ways to express our Irish sides, especially with groups of friends and family in social settings.
Here we offer several games of the free / homemade variety. You can download them, print them, copy them to your heart’s content.
Having a St Patricks day party? Entertain your guests with a Limerick Poems Game, with the prize going to the individual or team who writes the best limerick!
Or how about an Irish-themed birthday party? Have your guests play an Irish Slang Words Match Game and give a prize to the contestant with the highest score.
Having an Irish-themed bachelor or bachelorette party? Fill in the blanks in an Irish Sayings Quiz (over bottles of Guinness) and be prepared to laugh until you cry!
Ready to learn more about Irish party games? Let’s go!
Here is a fun game with many possible variations. The core idea is: write the funniest limerick poem.
You can play the game in teams (our favorite) or you can play the game individually (raffle-style) by handing in your answers.
Both versions involve an answer-card containing sample limericks with important words left out.
The trick is to fill in your own words to produce the funniest, most creative, most memorable limericks.
The winner(s) get a prize (with an Irish theme of course).

If you have never come in contact with Irish slang, you are in for a treat!
And if you have had that experience, like us, you probably recall at least a moment of confusion (or maybe a whole evening of it).
Never fear - our favorite Irish Slang Words game is here!
In this fun Irish party game, you match Irish slang words with their meanings.
The individual or team who makes the most correct matches wins the game and gets a prize!
This one is similar to the Irish Slang Words game, but in this case individuals or teams seek to complete famous Irish sayings by filling in missing words.
Think: Mad Libs meets St Patrick's Day!
It is absolutely possible to get a perfect score. All answers can be found somewhere on Irish-Expressions.com.
If you don't want to work that hard, you can download the answers - but what fun would that be?!
Play it individually or play it in teams - it is great craic either way!

By popular demand! Here is an entertaining way to share your Irish side - Funny Irish names!
Imagine: your guests arrive to your party, and are handed a game-card that shows them how to generate an funny Irish name for the evening.
Your friend John Doe (aka: Stewie O'Wooly) uses his funny Irish name to enter the party raffle and wins a holiday fruitcake!
