An Ode To The Irish Goodbye: 17 Reasons Why It's Iconic

The art of an Irish goodbye is one many of us have yet to master but once you do it successfully, you'll never go back, especially not to that party with 183 dry shites you went to school with. It's hard not to love the Irish goodbye - it's the perfect exit strategy and one I personally will be taking home with me to Australia. Here's 17 reasons the Irish goodbye is iconic:

1. It's so easy

2. You can avoid so many awkward goodbyes

3. It's no fuss


4. It feels so good to know people are wondering where you went

5. That walk out of the bar:

6. You feel free


7. You hardly feel bad about doing it

8. It's exhilarating

9. People will be jealous you did it


10. Ignoring Whatsapp calls like:

11. You never have to explain it

12. People think you're brave for pulling it off


13. It can turn a shit night into a good night

16. You can avoid lies like this

17. You will never need to be sorry about it

Long live the Irish goodbye.
