Young Offenders premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh on 8 July 2016, and won Best Irish Feature Film at the festival. The Irish Examiner scored it 4/5, saying "huge potential for that rare breakout hit which also attains a cultish following with endlessly quotable one liners." The Irish Times named it as one of the highlights of the Fleadh, saying "Chris Walley and Alex Murphy are brilliant as track-suited layabouts who, though lazy, impulsive and ignorant, remain endlessly lovable throughout." The film had its United States premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin Texas on 23 September 2016, where it won a Special Mention for Best Comedy Debut. The Austin Chronicle commented saying "The Young Offenders is a charming return for Irish comedy."
