I was told a few times when away in places like America that my accent was cool and in some cases sexy. Now I thought they were joking because I dont find the average Irish accent to be cool and certainly not sexy. So I was just wondering what you guys thought of the Irish accent and the people. I have been told that I sounded funny so should I take that as a complament or what.

I think they sound cool...depends on who is speaking whether it's sexy or not

If it's coming out of Pierce Brosnan's mouth, you bet.

Female (yes), male (no). Actually Irish is normal,
all the rest is an accent.

I love Irish accents.

New York/New Jersey accents are really the only ones I can't stand. Like nails on a chalkboard (sorry to those from that area).

Embarrassing. Ridiculous. The worst in all of the English language.

In all honesty? I do think people with an Irish accent need to SLOW DOWN when they talk. The accent itself is cool, it is just hard to understand you when you get talking fast. The people are super. One of my very close friends when I was in high school was from Ireland and all personality and would do anyting for her friends. No you don't sound funny just hard to understand when you get into a conversation.

I think an Irish accent sounds so cool that an Irish guy could walk into the room with a paper bag over his head and STILL be the sexiest man in the room.
