Irish men ranked least attractive in the world
Irish men have slipped to to the lowest-ever position on the world's most attractive nationalities.
They say beauty is only skin deep.
But that is likely to be of little consolation to Ireland's men who have slipped to their lowest-ever position in a table of the world's most attractive nationalities.
New analysis of data from beautifulpeople.com, an elite international dating site that only accepts good-looking singletons, has ranked males from Ireland as the outright ugliest in the world.

Just eight percent of Irish men who applied to land their profiles on the picky, Los Angeles-based site were successful -- even less than last year's chart, where Ireland at least shared the wooden spoon with Poland and the United Kingdom.
Let's see what Colin Farrell has to say about these rankings...
However, there was good news for Ireland's women, who have climbed up the rankings to tie with France as the seventh-most attractive nationality on the planet, just behind the U.S. in the poll.
Commenting on the contrasting Irish trends for each gender, Greg Hodge, the managing director of beautifulpeople.com said, "Irish women have climbed another spot and are clearly continuing to show an upward trend in attractiveness every year, but it's a different story for the men, who are at the bottom of the table behind Poland.
"There are many examples of very handsome Irish men in Hollywood, such as Cillian Murphy, Colin Farrell, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Dornan to name a few. However, this seems to be the exception, rather than the norm.
Look in to Cillian Murphy's eyes and tell us we're not hot!

"But if Irish men are lacking aesthetically, they would improve their acceptance rate on the site if they tried to portray a more polished image, and a more interesting lifestyle. Many who apply still send in a selfie shot a the pub, with a pint in hand. That does not go down well with women."
The controversial dating service, which has a worldwide membership of over five million, makes no apology for accepting only the globe's best-looking singletons.
Although an average of just one in five applicants succeed in gaining membership to the site, the latest charts confirm once again that success rates differ hugely from nation to nation.
Exhibit C ... Michael Fassbender!! Come on!
Norway is still home to the world's most beautiful women, with over seven out of ten female applicants accepted to the site, while men from neighboring Scandinavian country Sweden are ranked the most aesthetically pleasing nationality.
Men from the U.S. were ranked ninth in the table with a 24 percent success rate, while American females performed better, with 36 percent.
He's an underwear model turned hot actor... no?! Not even Jamie Dornan?
Hodge has repeatedly stressed he feels no reason to apologize for running a dating service which is exclusively available to the world's best-looking singletons.
"The concept is based on a fundamental human fact – that people want to be with someone they find very attractive,” he said.

The sexiest Irish men of all time
THIS week a survey from a rather dubious website named Miss Travel (which pairs up ‘attractive’ members who want to go on free holidays with its more ‘generous’ members) made headlines when it held a vote on the sexiest nationalities for men and women.
Armenian women (largely due to the Kardashian factor) were voted the world’s sexist, while the Irish topped the poll for men, but that’s where Miss Travel left it.
So, we’ve painstakingly picked up where they left off and produced a definitive list of the sexiest Irish men ever. And no, Niall Horan will never be on it.
Ireland's Top Ten Sexiest Men
1. Jamie Dornan
Man of the moment, Dornan is spotlight shy but not bashful enough that he won't strip down to his knickers for a photo shoot or sex scene. Also, people we know have met him and can confirm he’s ‘sound out’. HAWT.
2. Roy Keane
The eyes that shoot beams of justice, the fiery temper that makes FAI officials wet their pants, the no-nonsense attitude to sandwich fillings and his love of dogs. Keane is one of the hottest men to ever come out of Ireland, just don't make him angry...
3. Colin Farrell
The alpha Irish sexy man. Who cares that he can’t even do a convincing Dublin accent despite the fact that HE COMES FROM DUBLIN. He’s talented and looks good with a crew cut (The Recruit), with a beard (The New World), as a cowboy (American Outlaws) and as a Cork fisherman (Ondine). Versatility is so, so sexy.
4. Aidan Turner
From the moment mean, moody and misunderstood Ross Poldark (played by dreamboat Aidan Turner) rode into Cornwall on his horse we knew it was love. Apparently, threshing enthusiasts (maybe that should be singular) complained to the BBC about the accuracy of Tuner's technique in his topless scene with a scythe. I didn't even notice he was holding one.
5. Dylan Moran
Floppy haired, belligerent, misanthropic Moran is a stone cold fox. Is it the world-weariness? Maybe. The allure of dating a messed up comic genuis? Probably. The fact that he is rarely on stage without a bowl of red wine? Absolutely. Unfortunately, Moran's married with children. See, all the good depressed ones are taken...
6. Gabriel Byrne
Too old? How very dare you! At almost 65, Byrne is still as sexy as ever. What's not to like about that weather-beaten face? Byrne is like a less cranky, but just as crinkly Sean Penn. But if you are really ageist, beholding a young Gabriel in Miller's Crossing will silence you, you little upstart!
7. Paul Galvin
Galvin is the enfant terrible of the GAA world (which doesn’t mean throwing TV sets out windows or run ins with the law) but I’m pretty sure he gouged someone in the eye one time. Gouging someone in the eye is bold, but with a face like lumberjack and a body like a wiry Kerry killing machine you’d find it in your heart to forgive him.
8. Cillian Murphy
People go on and on about Cillian Murphy’s knife blade blue eyes, but I think that’s unfair. He also has excellent pouty lips and rather lovely hair. So cop on people, and start admiring all of his face. Also, my mum saw him running down the road when she was taking out the bins in Cork once and said he was ‘gorgeous’. Multi-generational appeal.
9. Liam Neeson
Actually I didn't really even fancy Liam Neeson that much until he started doing all this geri-action, hard man 'I will find you and I will kill you' business, which probably points to some unhealthy preferences or deep buried daddy issues on my part. I'll make an appointment with my therapist.
10. Pierce Brosnan
It would just be darn rude to leave the only ever Irish James Bond off the list, so here you go Pierce, you old smoothie. Our own 007 is truly one of the best things to ever come out of Navan (except the road to Dublin...yes, yes, I know).

Irish men handsome
Top-18 Handsome Irish Men. Photo Gallery
Irish men appearance is believed to be bright red hair, freckles and blue eyes. But in fact, that is just the stereotype. There are a few males with red hair in Ireland. But the guys with dark hair and a red beard are met very often in this country. Mostly, they have Harry Potter face features: narrow face, often elongated, hollow cheeks that often get blush.
Style and behavior of Irish men
Judging by the clothes, men in Ireland may be divided into 3 categories: knackers, fashionistas and ordinary guys.
- Knackers are met everywhere: they are guys from 14 to 24 who drink, smoke and make lawlessness on the streets. To come to a stranger and mimic him - a common thing. They look like not too bad: gray knitted sports pants, backpacks and sneakers.
- Fashionistas men: dressed up in cute coats, skinny trousers and have gel laid hairstyles.
- It is everything clear with ordinary guys - they do not try to stand out, they are everywhere.
Irish males in most cases look harsh, but at the same time, with a little bit cunning in their eyes, brutal but with a kind heart, strong but still gentle.
Also the main features of every Irish man can be called the straightforwardness, mystery, leadership qualities, the ability to perform feats for the sake of the beloved one, patriotism, a serious attitude to marriage.
National features of men in Ireland
This country managed to preserve spiritual values and not to forget the age-old moral norms. All Irish males are extremely polite and courteous, and greatly respect women. Therefore, there are not so common radical feminist looks that hit the whole Europe.
For any Irish man a family and his home are the main things in life. Due to respectful attitude toward women and kind quiet nature handsome Irish men are the ideal partner for life. They are practical, hardworking and caring. By the way, it is not accepted to share homework on "feminine" and "masculine" in Ireland. All Irish guys care about household, cook dinner, wash the dishes.
Irish males know how to have fun too. Festivities, celebrations are in the blood of this cheerful nation. On weekends men prefer go to pubs, restaurants where they can enjoy the real Irish whiskey and great ethnic music.
Guys in this country are very welcoming and hospitable people. They love beer and football. If you share their interests, you will find a lot of friends in the face of Irish men. In general, Irish males are open to dialogue and have excellent sense of humor. They like to get rest in public places, where there are talks and debates on the football theme and an atmosphere of friendliness and fun. Even after two drunk pints of beer, they let to dance the Irish jig.
Irish guys are very talkative and at the same time balanced enough. They will not spoil the nerves on trifles their wives or others.
Irish men small disadvantages:
- They are not mandatory and are not punctual.
- They can perform the promise for a long time. If the Irish man said he would do something today, it could be tomorrow or even the day after.
