I reckon 6 ft 1 and a half (186.7cm). He's in the middle of Google's claim of 6 ft 2 (188cm) and this website's claim. But probably not 6 ft 3.

186cm is my vote…

186cm Legit. Because he is slightly taller than Barack obama (44th US President)

6'1 on the dot or 185cm at low.
MAD SAM said on 24/Aug/18
6’1.5” is a real possibility at 186.5 cm
said on 16/Oct/17
186cm possible, Rob?
Editor Rob: I did think for a while it was a possibility.
John said on 29/Jul/17
I would say 186.5 to 187cm
John said on 2/Jul/17
I think he and the other 3 westlife members has a height difference of 4 to 5 inches, as if nicky is 5ft8.5, he is about 6ft 0.5in or no more

6-0.5 or 6-1" max. B/S anything over that .
Rhonda said on 29/Dec/15
Looks like a legit 6ft guy can't say he ever looks 6ft2. Mark Foster swimmer had 6 inches on him on TV.

I think he must be 186 cm perfectly. The problem is that in Westlife they tried to make it out to not leave the others short. The pics were very carefully taken to not make him stand out a lot, lots of tricks with angles and positions.

Tallest in west life Micky is about 5"9 Shane 5"8 Mark about 5"11-6ft and Cain definitely 5"8 I've seen him in public and he looks a legit 6"1 and also he was wearing flat footwear and I'd say he could reach 6"2 with heeled trainers

Rob the thing is he does actually look it here with Alan Hansen! Click Here
I'd always had Hansen down as a legit 6'2". Click Here
With Redknapp he does look near it as his posture is poor.

As a slight correction to my earlier post, the reality show is called "Who's Doing the Dishes". Oops, my bad but it just started this week.
Ilyathe2nd said on 5/Sep/14
On an episode of the new reality show 'Who's Going to Do the Dishes' he stood next to celeb host for the episode Bobby George, and they were pretty much the same height, particularly with Bobby's relaxed posture.
So I'd say 6ft - 6ft 0,5, certainly no more than 6ft1, and that upper end would be with solid footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/13
6ft1/185cm looks too low. I think he could be 6ft1.5/187cm, maybe even a weak 6ft2. His claim is in shoes.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Dec/13
6 ft 3 is certainly laughable. James Redmond back left in that photo I think said he was 6 ft 3 on a Saturday morning breakfast show back in the late 90s and looks it. He's easily 2 inches taller than McFadden.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Dec/13
Quinn's wife and daughter in particular is an absolute knock out. Dark hair and blue eyes and tall!
Arch Stanton said on 23/Dec/13
I always thought 6 ft 2 seem a stretch for him. Yeah Niall Quinn I saw him as a commentator on something not long ago and I thought he looked 6'5"-6'6", I remember him being listed at 6 ft 4 back in the Premier League sticker days. That's a proper very tall bloke!!
Emily said on 23/Dec/13
Yeah, i grow 4 inches in sunny weather, but i can also lose about 7 inches at rainy weather.
said on 22/Dec/13
Rob, did you see Andy's post?
McFadden claimed 6ft2 or 3
[Editor Rob: yeah I hadn't added it, but I should]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Sep/13
"Brian McFadden height: 6ft 1.5in (187cm)"
188cm is a bit high

Does he lie?
Josh said on 11/May/13
He seems to be a legit 6'0 guy I would say 6'0.5 the most but never 6'2.
SAK said on 11/Apr/13
Mike says: My son is 6ft 1/2in and he said he towered over him, by at least an inch or maybe more.
Ok so now, being 1"-2" taller then someone is towering. These descriptions are getting ridiculous.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/13
Somewhere between 6ft1-2, Rob?
Mike said on 24/Feb/13
My oldest son, took his daughter to an event years ago where there
were various celebs performing. He had just gone solo at the time.
Brian reached out and touched my grand daughters hand. My son is 6ft 1/2in
and he said he towered over him, by at least an inch or maybe more.
SAK said on 17/Feb/13
He was noticeably taller then all his ex-westlife band members, which gives the impression he was taller then he actually is.
@Andy 185cm said on 11/Feb/13
@Rob Here is the proof that Bryan is only 6', next to Harry Kewell pic.twitter.com/pWfEROZS
said on 8/Feb/13
@Rob What do you think of this Picture? Click Here
[Editor Rob: I don't think the background is real...he can generally look 4-5 inches taller than nicky who claims 5ft 8]
said on 15/Jan/13
@Rob Do you personally think that he is closer to 6' than 6'1? Im myself 6'1. And when i see Bryan in pics, i feel like im taller, but i also like to add that im pretty slim.
[Editor Rob: sometimes I think he looks 6ft 1, then sometimes he can look just 6 foot range, for the moment I'll leave him at 6ft 1]
said on 14/Jan/13
@Rob Do you think he maybe has lost some height since the Westlife days?
He gained a lot of weight since his Westlife days, he used to be handsome in 1999, funny how age can change peoples looks so drastically!
[Editor Rob: I doubt he's lost height, actually I just looked at photos and he's shorter than a model (who is down as 5ft 10.5) when she stands tall in heels...so he really can be 6ft-6ft 1 range.]
said on 12/Jan/13
@Rob do you think that he wore lifts when he was in Westlife? He looks so much taller in music videos? Or do you think its his weight that made him appear very tall when he was in Westlife?
[Editor Rob: a couple of the guys are what 5ft 8, so he always did have a looming prescience over them.]
said on 12/Jan/13
@Rob Bryan is closer to the camera, yet he barely reach niall quinns eyelevel.
What do you think of this?
[Editor Rob: it gives credence to his range being 6ft-6ft 1 rather than 6ft 2, especially the cricket guy on the other side of him being taller]
said on 10/Jan/13
@Rob i saw a video of him when it said height 6' do you think 183cm for Bryan is reasonable? here is the video Click Here
[Editor Rob: I don't think he'd be just 6ft, but you never rule anything out.
Look at him with matthew vaughn
and niall quin, who is a very tall guy, he got listed 6ft 4 playing days but he looks taller than that, 6ft 5 range.
I think it's safe to rule out any 6ft 2 for the guy...]
said on 25/Dec/12
Is 189cm possible, Rob?
[Editor Rob: I think a bit high for him]
darian said on 3/Sep/12
I met him in Dublin airport and he is definitely not 6'2
I'm 6'2 and I was a good bit taller
Melisa_Westlife_Fan said on 19/Aug/11
He Is 186 cm, I know coz every time I watch my "Westlife Unbreakable" dvd it says how tall the guys are. Even their first kiss and birth date!!!
Shaun said on 16/Aug/11
Does look a legit 6'2" next to 6'4" Kevin Pietersen not standing straight. ALways looked this height next to everybody, even Delta Goodren in heels.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/11
I always thought he was 6ft3 but was until I learnt of heights of the other Westlife members.
aida said on 17/Dec/10
he is 187cm
Hugh said on 5/Dec/08
Josh said on 23/Nov/08
Yeah he is in the 6'1-6'2 range.
ddi said on 3/Sep/08
was in gym here in Dublin last saturday. noticeably taller than me (180/179) but not sure about 6'2". I'd be surprised if he's over 6'1". We were both wearing similar runners. None too impressive fitness/build wise.
Hugh said on 18/Apr/08
A bit more maybe.
AshnarLynx said on 21/Nov/07
I remember he was listed as 178 cm and I thought he looked taller than that. He looked tallest in Westlife!
Brett said on 8/Mar/06
