20 paint colours that truly capture the essence of Ireland

From Viennetta Beige to Scarlet For Yer Ma.

TWO CALMING NEUTRAL shades with top notes of disappointment, Sunday dinner, and passive-aggressive tidying.

A contrasting pair of bolder colours, which bring a feeling of class and a distinct air of reconstituted meat into any room.

Two iconic tones, inspired by sticky cheese powder and Saturday night skincare respectively.

A celebration of national icons in paint. Ideal for kitchens and agricultural storage areas.

Excitement! Sexual tension! Bodily emissions! All will be evoked by the deployment of these two daring shades.

These colours work exceptionally well with Guinness Farts and Coppers Shift.

Inspired by the vibrant nightlife of our capital, and the scary stuff that happens the next day.

Two very different colours. Firstly, that feeling when you know you haven’t had a drink but are STILL terrified you’ll fail the breathalyser. Secondly, the colour of the Brown Thomas bag you carry your runners in.

Relaxing shades, perfect for Sundays.

Firstly, a pink colour with a strong satin sheen that boldly declares ‘the little boutique in town’. Secondly, what happens to Dermot Bannon’s emotional state over the course of a single Room To Improve episode.

Here’s the full set, for comparison. Feel free to add your own!
