Anyone who's spent time any at parties they didn't like, or obligatory occasions they really thought about not turning up to - will know the true and fearless beauty of an Irish Exit. 

Known also as an 'Irish Goodbye', the method is a tactic used to slip out of a party without causing a fuss. 

It means that you don't have to be pressured into staying longer, or hazed for leaving early. And its dreamy gratification bestowed upon the person performing the routine is instantaneous. 

So, what makes it so bloody popular?

1. You can happily go home without being stopped

''Ah, you'll stay for another. Go on go on go on go on go on''


2. You don't interfere with proceedings in the least

Ain't no party like an Irish Exit party cause an Irish Exit party don't stop!


3. You can avoid all of the people you said you were going to catch up with

Because whoever says they enjoy small talk, is blatantly lying. 

4. You can leave alone, and not be responsible for giving lifts to half the party

People can be so draining. 

5. By leaving the party with no mess, attention or backlash - you're fitting into the 'ideal party clientele' bracket

6. Especially if you feel rubbish, want to avoid someone there for whatever reason, or feel that it would generally be better for one and all if you left

7. It's a miracle you even went to the party anyway!

8. You're doing yourself a favour

And how often do we get to do that in this day and age?

10. It's also especially good if you drank way too much and need to get outta there ASAP

11. And even though it's not always easy...

12. It's always, always worth it
