How to Take a Leprechaun’s Pot of Gold

The leprechaun is an Irish fairy and it is known that each one has a pot of gold that he guards. If you manage to find a leprechaun and catch him, you can make him give you that pot of gold, if you threaten him first. Finding one of these leprechauns is not as easy though and even if you do find one, you should know that they can be extremely tricky. Once you found one, keep your eyes on him, so he doesn’t disappear. More details and how you can do it step by step below.

The legends of the Irish say that the leprechaun has all his fortune hidden, using a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If you want his fortune, you need to do everything right and not make mistakes along the way. Below are the actual steps you need to go through.

First of all, if you’re trying to find a leprechaun, you might want to keep your eyes open for small men, of around two feet high, old looking and grumpy. They’re usually working on shoes if it’s during the day, so listen for hammer sounds.

When you’re approaching the leprechaun, try to sneak up on him with as little noise as possible. If you manage to get your hands on him, don’t let him go even for a second. Don’t let him divert your attention, because he will disappear as soon as you look away. Even if you look away just for one second, he will disappear. If he doesn’t want to tell you where he keeps his pot of gold, you need to threaten him until he gives you the location. He should take you and give you the gold, don’t trust him to just tell you where it is.
