As the saying goes, you’ll never beat the Irish – and that’s relevant when it comes to good looks, too.

It seems like we’re absolutely everywhere and the world is finally catching up on all our incredible talent.

So much so that Elle Magazine in the States declared this summer “Hot Irish Guy Summer”!

Included in the list were Paul Mescal, Hozier and Pierce Brosnan.


During a recent interview, Hozier reacted to being included in the list – and he was only delighted, of course.

“Is there such a thing as Hot Irish Guy Summer?” he joked as he was filled in on the situation.

“Who else is on the list? Paul Mescal in there? Gorgeous,” he laughed before going through the rest of the list.

“Pierce Brosnan? Perpetually hot, he is perennial, perpetually, eternally hot. He is as fine as wine.

“Cillian Murphy? Okay, I’m in good company. Those eyes would cut right through you, absolutely gorgeous man.”

In case you missed it, elsewhere in the list were Colin Farrell and Daryl McCormack. And honestly, we think it’s the perfect list.

Hozier is of course heading on tour for his new album, Unreal Unearth, with several Irish dates announced.

He will play the 3Arena in Dubin on the 19th, 20th and 22nd of December as well as the SSE Arena in Belfast on the 17th of December.

After a four-year hiatus, Hozier released his EP Eat Your Young on St. Patrick’s Day, before going on to release his album in August to plenty of acclaim.

Hot Irish Guy Summer is ongoing into the Autumn too as Paul Mescal was featured on Time magazine’s 100 Next list of influential people on the rise.

He is joined by the likes of the Crown’s Emma Corrin and The Last Of Us’s Bella Ramsey.

A pretty solid list!
