Dublin Local Customs: 165 reviews and 152 photos


Came across a great website recently. It is called 'overheardin Dublin', part of 'overheardinIreland'. People basically just post any funny story (real-life) or conversation they have heard. Some of the stuff is a bit on the rude side, but much of it is hilarious.

Here is typical example (from on the LUAS

A woman scanger got on a packed luas at Jervis Street.She began to shout her conversation down her phone for everyone to hear, with her phone on loudspeaker.She said "What's the next stop after The Four Courts? The person on the end of the phone replied "Mountjoy".

NB . This joke is only understandable to some, and I shan't be explaining it.
