Just ahead, you're about to find a treasure trove of clever one-liners and corny jokes that are — dare we say it — pure gold.

In the name of all things Irish, we've gathered together a collection of Paddy-licious St. Patrick's Day puns that we think are about to shamrock your world. Or, at the very least, give you a chuckle or two.

If you're in need of a beer pun to accompany an Instagram post of you and your pals enjoying a pint or two on St. Paddy's, you'll find it in the list below, and whichever you choose, it's sure to get ale, er, we mean all the likes.

If you've noticed all of the bad-but-good puns we've already tossed in, beware, because there are plenty more where those came from. After all, what's St. Paddy's without corned beef, a pint of Guinness and a tongue-in-cheek pun that's — wait for it — lager than life?

Better yet, we've also thrown in a few Irish-inspired dad jokes to get your eyes a-smiling, like: Why are leprechauns shoemakers? They have sole, of course.
