Top Definition
A large breed of spaniel, the oldest and rarest of them.

It has a thick, waterproof, curly liver-coloured coat which although looks similar to that of a poodle in texture, is actually very soft and fluffy.

Their most distinguishing features are their bright yellow eyes and their strange, hairless, rat-like tails. They also have webbed feet.

It is impossible to keep this dog out of the water, so don`t even try.
Person 1 - `Hey, is that a poodle?'
Person 2 - 'No, check the tail. That's an Irish Water Spaniel'
