Polish vs Irish stereotypes from a Polish girl in Ireland

She seems like a nice and objective person and since I've never been to Ireland I found her observations interesting (and funny because of the way she's talking about it) :) It isn't some in depth analysis but since it's usually the expats in Poland sharing their observations on this forum, I thought I'll post it:

Btw, she has a Polish accent, but it sounds like she's getting an Irish one too, don't you think? lol :)

Watched a bit of that and it was good, love her stereotype analyses, ill try and finish it later. Shes definitely picking up an Irish twang, and on the subject of Irish accents this is a good one:

I watched it this morning with a few of the lads in the office, she's picking up an Irish accent for sure, bit of a south county Dublin one ;)

I'd agree with most of her observations.......to an extent, although not every pub you go into in Ireland has signing and dancing, or people playing instruments.....although it's far more common at home than in Poland.....especially in the western and southern parts of Ireland, less so in the more urban areas.

I am suprised no one mentioned the ladder in the background for the Polish builder boyfriend, then there is the sleeping bag just behind her to the left for allowing six people to a room. Stereotypes :-)

This stereotype of polish hospitality. I've only heard it from Polish people.

That is stereotype of the long extinct part of the Polish culture; other nations also have their myths which not longer or never have been true.

Yea, I've never heard any other nation say it about the Poles........but in fairness, in their homes the Polish will do everything and anything to make sure that you never go hungry or thirsty.....or leave sober ;)

but Polish people tell me all the time that they are internationally famous for it.

Yea, me too, strange ain't it...............although it's probably because not so many foreigners come to Poland so most countries don't really have a stereotypical view of Poland.
