We all love a good session and what better way is there to have a decent party than with a couple of drinking games? Here are some of the best Irish drinking games to bring to a party. Bottoms up!
All you need is a potato and some trad music or Enya, The Corrs - anything Irish! Get one of your very very good friends to be the DJ and get them to control the pause button. Sit in a circle and throw the spud to one another until the music stops. The person holding the spud has to drink the designated shot. Just don't launch the spud at any glass windows.
This one's pretty simple. Every time you hear the word Roxanne in the Police song of the same name you have to drink. Good one if the taxis coming and you need to down your pre-drinks.
The Toy Show Drinking Game
Sure it's not just for Christmas! Watch repeats on YouTube - sure why not? *glug, glug, glug*

Drink While You Think
Think of a celebrity or well-known person's name. If you use, say, Beyoncé Knowles, the next person has to think of a famous name from the first letter of the surname of the previous celebrity. So with the letter "K" you could choose Kelly Clarkson. I feel like this would get very messy. Go forth and get drunk.
Ellen is a gas character *drops bottle onto the floor and keels over*. Download her Heads Up game. If you pay for additional features you can download questions related to Irish things like leprechauns or shamrocks. If you get a question wrong you have to take a sip.
Paranoia (Paranoia - it'll destroy ya)
This game is one of the more controversial ones. If you can't take a slagging I would probably sit this one out. So the rules are as follows. You have to whisper a question in to the person next to you's ear. The question has to start with "who". The example would be: " Who farts the most?". You have to say a name out loud of a person in the room. If the person wants to know what the question was they have to drink a shot. Let the shade commence.
You will need one deck of cards and lots of beers (cans or bottles - bottles make it more difficult) and at least 3 players. Place the can/ bottle in the centre of the table beside a face-down deck of cards. You have to guess what colour the card will be. If you get it wrong you have to drink the face value of the card in seconds (1-9=amount of seconds shown, 10-king=10 seconds, ace=15). If you guess correctly you place the card on top of the can/bottle with two the card's edges hanging over the edge of the bottle. This is continued until the person who knocks the pile of cards off the top of the bottle or can has to chug the entire beer.
