I was always very deeply uncomfortable with my height...in the last few years I've only still come round to that, getting to own it as such. But I'm not a giant...you know what I mean, I'm just a tall man...Six-Six...I was measured there the other day by somebody.

Yeah maybe he's a 6'6 in the morning type of guy, I did think he was around 6'5.5, looks taller than 6'5 flat anyway. Howard Stern sort of range.

Good call, Rob
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/21
Yeah that's a brilliant find. He definitely does have the frame to pull off a 6ft6 appearance. If he was measured like he says he was (maybe 9:00am?) then there's a decent he got it. At face value, no one would question that claim. But giving him that listing is another matter though.

I agree with Andrea...for now I'd add a fraction to this but with 6ft5½ being on the table for debate also. Same neighborhood as peak Stern. At least 1in on two solid 6ft4 guys...
Andrea said on 14/Jul/21
Here's the interview where he claims to have been measured at 6'6: Click Here (at about 25:00)
Can't quite see him that tall, but a fraction over 6'5 maybe is not impossible (when standing tall)...
Editor Rob
Thanks for pointing that out. I don't know about barefoot or in converse.

I would say this dude is definetly taller than this 6'5 mark, at least 6'5,5". I don't know what he's often wearing but he looks more than 2 inches taller than Chris Hemworth with bad posture, solid 1,5 inch on Michael Strahan and an inch on Skargard with same footwear and posture. This dude is at least as tall as Bo Burnham if not a bit more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/21
slim, 194cm is too low...clearly taller than two strong 6ft4 guys in Skarsgaard and Strahan. 196.5cm is more like it!

@185vietnamese

Sometimes Hozier wear rocker boots that is thick enough given 2". Not sure about Saoirse footwear with him.
185vietnamese said on 20/Jan/21
Hozier can't be just 6'5 flat, look how crazy tall he is with Saoirse Ronan

Arch Stanton said on 19/Jan/21
Yeah he could be a little over 6'5 Rampage
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jan/21
Me, neither...I think a fraction over is possible the more I look at him. What a real 6ft5 guy should look that
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/21
Rob, what you got there is plentiful evidence to support this guy as a legit 6ft5. Let's see...2in on Hemsworth, a good inch on Strahan (6ft4 minimum) and with worse posture/camera disadvatge, still edging Skarsgaard


I'm getting more of a Howard Stern vibe from Hozier, like arguably a fraction over 6ft5
Editor Rob
yeah I'd also found his quote too, he thinks he's 6ft 5.

I doubt he falls under that mark from all I've seen.

a weak 6'5 for hozier tall man but can fit in a church door. ;)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/20
He actually has pretty broad shoulders I notice in the photo but still lanky. I think Chris Hemsworth, Jason Momoa (slightly shorter guys obviously) were like that the beginning aswell. Heck, maybe even Joe Mangeniello...
Arch Stanton said on 12/Oct/20
Nah he looks too healthy in the face, I think he's just a skinny lanky guy. Dylan Brosnan looks more like a possible Marfan candidate to me.
Leif said on 11/Oct/20
@MaryJane Donovan is that truea out Marfan sufferers being great in the savk..do they have i creased libido or something?
Zel said on 22/Aug/20
@christian:
"Alexander's wearing thinner shoes than him though."

I think what's much clearer in the picture is that Hozier's knees were bent and he was leaning forward to be closer to the two shorter men on his left and right. Maybe to blend in.
Mary-Jane Donovan said on 27/May/20
Hozier is of course a beautiful man, but I wonder if he has ever had himself checked by a Cardiologist for Marfan Syndrome? I have it as well, (lots of Irish people do). It is a genetic disorder,that results in various outward qualities,like tallness, deep-set eyes, crowded teeth, very long fingers and toes, a long face, and (I kind you not), a higher I.Q. than their unaffected peers (we are also wildly sexy and great in the sack...kidding...no, really)
Marfans has dangerous internal issues. It is caused by defects of the fbn1 gene, which results in weakened connective tissue, that can lead to aneurysms, heart valve disease, retinal detachment in the eyes, and more. It is by no means a death sentence, as most of these things can be caught, if followed by a Cardiologist, but they can be deadly to those who are not aware that they have it.
Just be careful, Sir Andrew, we need you!

@Rampage: it’s like me getting guessed 6’6” when I’m only 6’4”. More specifically a hair over 6’4.25-.3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/19
This guy could be a little over 6ft5. I’m sure he gets guessed as height as 6ft7
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Nov/19
@Zel
There are too many factors to consider, such as footwear, time of day, and whether it was rounded up or not, to automatically determine that he measured a legit 6'6". I agree with you that he doesn't have the best posture though.
viper said on 25/Nov/19
He's one lanky dude so physically he can pull off looking 6-6.

Measurement could have been in shoes
Canson said on 24/Nov/19
This is one of the only listings of 6’6”

Click Here

To this day I don’t get the reasoning for use of the word “impressive” in a height conversation. Being 6’6” doesn’t make the person anymore impressive than being 5’6”
Editor Rob
It is possible Hozier was over 6ft 5 and near 6ft 6 at 9-10am, he can look very tall at times. Could be Stern-like
Canson said on 24/Nov/19
@Zel: he has proportions of a guy that size. But he’s lanky. His 6’6 claim could’ve come from a morning measurement where he could’ve been 6’5.5 an hour after an hour. But he could be 6’5 afternoon. We also don’t know if He’s claiming a shoe height
Zel said on 23/Nov/19
He's 6'6. He told in a podcast he was recently measured. I'd believe him because he's been in denial and has been saying he's 6'5 for such a long time. He dreaded growing any taller. He's got no intentions to appear taller, he slouches all the time.
Angus said on 26/Jul/19
6'3" or 6'4" max next to George ezra

Christian 6'5 3/8 "
the difference is not too big but worst case I would say hozier will probably measure 6'4.75

Alexander's wearing thinner shoes than him though.

Hozier sometimes wear thick boots on show. 1.75-2". Average guess is what i see him without advantage heels on feet.
Nik said on 10/May/18
6'4.5" - 6'5"!

Please Rob, add Hozier to the rock singers category.

5'10-5'10.5" is the average height for an adult male, in the USA, and 5'9.5 for adult males in Ireland. So, Andrew Hozier Byrne, at 6'5" is very tall.

There's no way this is true. Irish people are definitely taller than Americans. Average height in US is 5'9.4 for young people while it's 5'10.5 in Ireland.

5'9 is the average height for all men in the US bud. Youth are 5'10.

BilboBaggins said on 20/Oct/16
Spot-on. Definitely 6' 5" (which Hozier is known to be embarassed about, bless him)!

Guy looks gigantic, I could very easily buy 6'5"! He looks every inch of it.

6'5 is not commom in Ireland !

I came here to find out Jools Hollands height. I wa disappointed. Does anyone know Jools Hollands height????? It's important
Editor Rob
I doubt Jools is any more than 5ft 8, at times he can look only 5ft 7.
Damian said on 30/Apr/16
He looks possibly 6ft9
Arch Stanton said on 7/Apr/16
He can certainly look 6'6 Kata, I agree. But he has a gangly frame so that can make him look taller.
Kata gal said on 6/Apr/16
He seems taller then his usual height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
6ft5 range for sure
jessman said on 27/Apr/15
@irshgrl500
What i said was 6'5 is as commonplace in Ireland as it is in the UK. This does not suggest Ireland or the UK is awash with 6'5 people. Just means, relative to populations, we have proportionally the same. Phantom seemed to suggest 6'5 is freakishly tall in Ireland. Its not. Im irish. Im tall. Ive been to the UK often.
TallLeprechaun said on 24/Apr/15
Well I'm Irish and I'm the youngest in my year but I'm actually tall enough! Not everyone in Ireland is a short and ginger!!! That's just what everyone thinks :D
irshgrl500 said on 3/Apr/15
Both Jessman, and Phantom, have it wrong. County Wicklow, Bray born, so yes I have been to Ireland. And no Jessman, 6'5" is NOT common place height for a man in Ireland. 6'5" is considered quite tall in Ireland, as in the USA.
I hate to break it to you but neither Hozier or Liam Neeson are indicative of the average or ordinary Irishman, when it comes to their height.
5'10-5'10.5" is the average height for an adult male, in the USA, and 5'9.5 for adult males in Ireland. So, Andrew Hozier Byrne, at 6'5" is very tall.

@Phantom
Have you ever been to Ireland? Its not a land of leprechauns. 6'5 is as commonplace on Ireland as it is in the UK. Its not an extreme height.
Mathew said on 3/Mar/15
I had no idea he was that tall but before, but looking at photos and videos of him he really does look around 6'5".
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Click Here Here's the video, check it out at 0:30-0:40 for instance his head almost looks u in the ceiling hehe. He's is quite big boots and the low camera angle and coat makes him look even taller!
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
There's a video of him live on Jools Holland on Youtube and no kidding he looks about 6 ft 7, he probably is near that in the boots he often wears. But the combination of the low camera angles and a long black coat added to the illusion of his height, as if a legit 6'5" wasn't tall enough!
Arch Stanton said on 11/Feb/15
He looks taller than Vince Vaughn did next to Ellen, and he's standing with a guitar too which makes you look shorter. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a strong 6'5.
Jim said on 9/Feb/15
He's a legit 6'5 barefoot, 6'6 with shoes. He's a tall bloke.
Bishop said on 7/Feb/15

Skip to the end of the video. He towers over Ellen (Though, I think he has a footwear advantage).
Editor Rob
here's a still probably both standing similar Here.

My brother is 6'4 and looked a tad shorter in his pic standing next to Hozier.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Dec/14
With Bill Hader who Rob has at 6'1" and some claim is a strong 6'1". Click Here He might have footwear advantage but he looks 6'5" and change there I think.
bigcitydreamer said on 12/Dec/14
Can confirm, he told me (in person). He's also said it on Irish radio a couple of times.
Jim said on 12/Dec/14
Legit 6'5". He was clearly that tall at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show this week. He looked huge up there, towering even the 6'0 models.
Sam said on 1/Dec/14
Rob has meet a lot of actors and worked thousands of celebheight pages so I'd defer that it pays to be above average if he says it. Then again, at certain times too much height could have been a liability to work through, actors like Christopher Lee have talked about work being scarce because he was too much taller than leading actors.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Nov/14
Actually a lot of Irish actors seem to be over 6 ft and some in very tall range!
Editor Rob
with acting, it is actually a height biased industry, it pays to be above average height. You just have to look at the disproportionate amount of taller men I've got photos with.

There are far more above 5ft 9 than below 5ft 9 men in the business...
jessman said on 11/Nov/14
@Phantom
I'm not offended but your missing the point. He is tall by any country's standard. I repeat, Ireland has similar average height to US and rest of Europe. He is no more exceptional in Ireland than in these countries.
Phantom said on 10/Nov/14
Whoops, wasn't trying to offend anyone.

I guess he's just really tall by Irish standards, not a giant.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Nov/14
Let's hope his church door is tall enough for him to walk through!!
Sam said on 10/Nov/14
Thanks for adding, good song. One of those young guys with an older voice. I thought he could look a strong 3 inches taller than Bill Hader but I think Hozier was standing a bit looser, he can look near 6'5".
MD said on 9/Nov/14
Are the modern Irish known for being short? Never heard that stereotype.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Nov/14
Have you seen the length of his fingers? I noticed when he was holding down a few bar chords his fingers are like twice the length of most! I have pretty big hands but his fingers look way longer than mine!!
jessman said on 9/Nov/14
@Phantom
Have you ever been to Ireland? Its not a land of leprechauns. 6'5 is as commonplace on Ireland as it is in the UK. Its not an extreme height.
Phantom said on 9/Nov/14
Damn, he's an absolute giant by Irish standards.
MD said on 9/Nov/14
Yes, he is at least this tall. He absolutely towered supposedly 6'1" Bill Hader on SNL a few weeks ago.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Nov/14
I think he's leaning in the O Leary photo though.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Nov/14
He does look near it actually, although I can't quite see 10 inches on 5'7 Dermot o Leary Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 8/Nov/14
Good grief, really 6'5? I could tell he was tall but didn't realise quite that big.
