Here's What To Say If You Want To REALLY Piss Off A Dubliner

Dubliners are a sensitive bunch. recently looked at how to piss off every county in Ireland and that got us thinking about the good people of Dublin — and how we could really wind 'em up.

All in the name of good fun, of course. 

Now we're not saying you should go around pissing off Dubliners, but if you're curious about how you might go about doing it, here are a few choice phrases that'll do the trick...

1. "Temple Bar is the best place in Dublin for a night out. No question"

Oh God Honey No

2. "This apartment is tiny — your rent must be really cheap"

Begging Me To Hate You

3. "I just love the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street, don't you?"

No Thank You Gif

4. "Boojum is overrated"

Beg Your Pardon

5. "The Spire is quite possibly the greatest monument of all time"

Are You Serious

6. "Those Luas works finished yet?"

Watch Your Mouth

7. "I love how you're allowed to cycle on the footpaths in Dublin!"

Shaking Head

8. "So are from Dublin or are really you from Kildare or some shite?"

How Very Dare You

9. "You just can't get a decent pint of Guinness in the Big Shmoke"

Is That A Joke

10. "Sure you only win the GAA because you get all the money"

That Is Not True

11. "You can pay for the bus in 5c coins, yeah?"

Twitching Eye

12. "My God, did you look at the receipt after that last round?"

My Eyes

13. "Coddle is shit"

When all else fails, you gotta bring out the big guns.

Rage Eyes
