Irons was born in Camden, London, on 17 October 1985, the son of English actor Jeremy Irons and Irish actress Sinéad Cusack. He is the grandson of actors Cyril Cusack and Maureen Cusack. His brother, Samuel Irons, is a photographer. Through his mother, he is a half-brother of politician Richard Boyd Barrett; his aunts are the actresses Niamh Cusack and Sorcha Cusack, and his uncle is theatre producer Pádraig Cusack. Irons attended the Dragon School in Oxford, then Bryanston School in Dorset (from which he was soon expelled after being caught by a teacher having sex), and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2008. As a dyslexic student, the teaching methods adopted by his school didn't suit his learning style, which resulted in him struggling through his school years, and his father discouraged him from going into an acting career. While first starting off in acting, Irons worked as a barman.
