Niall was born in Mullingar, County Westmeath, Ireland to mother Maura and father Bobby. He has an older brother, Greg, and his parents divorced when he was five. He was a pupil at Coláiste Mhuire, a boys' Christian Brothers school.[Horan gained singing experience in the school choir, performing seasonally around Christmas.
Prior to participating in X Factor, he performed around his homeland, including as a support act for Lloyd Daniels in Dublin. Horan has been playing guitar since childhood. In an interview he referred to his guitar as "the best present I ever received for Christmas."Horan revealed his parents took note of his singing during a car trip, "my aunt said she thought the radio was on. Exactly the same thing happened to Michael Bublé with his dad. He's my absolute hero so I like the fact we have a similar story.
"He also stated that in his hometown, he was often referred to as the "Irish Justin Bieber." He didn't mind the comparison. In 2010, Horan auditioned as a solo candidate for the seventh series of The X Factor, performing "So Sick", receiving mixed comments from the judges present at his audition, with Louis Walsh in his favor. Two other judges voiced doubts about his abilities but with three votes out of four, he was sent to boot camp where he sang "Champagne Supernova".
He failed to qualify for the "Boys" category and so was put in One Direction. On forming One Direction, Horan said: "we were given five minutes to go away and decide if we wanted to do it, but we knew we were, it was just a formality. We were jumping up and down and we were all a bit giddy." On auditioning for the The X Factor, he said "I'm 16 and I want to be a big name like Beyoncé and Justin Bieber," he said. "I've been compared to him a few times and it's not a bad comparison. I want to sell out arenas, make an album and work with some of the best artists in the world."
Niall said "I was always the kid that picked up the nearest instrument and just loved music." He has also stated that he is a "big swing" fan, noting older and current artists Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Michael Bublé among his influences. Horan also cites rock music among his influences, he is a fan of The Eagles, Bon Jovi and The Script. Additionally he cites recording artist Ed Sheeran as an influence. When Sheeran and One Direction collaborated on the song "Moments" for their debut album, he said it as an honor to work with him.Horan has stated he prefers girls without make-up.
In 2012, Niall revealed that he has had a fear of birds — known as ornithophobia — since he was attacked by a pigeon while on the toilet as a child. Symptoms include: breathlessness, dizziness, excessive sweating, nausea, dry mouth, feeling sick, shaking, heart palpitations, inability to speak or think clearly, a fear of dying, becoming mad or losing control, or a full-blown anxiety attack.
In interview with OK! Magazine Horan stated, "I've not actually been on too many dates. I just like sitting at home, chilling and watching a movie. He also said that he is better at understanding females than others, adding: "I'm an emotional guy, so I don't have to worry about that"
Best thing about being in One Direction: That we all get along.

What mobile phone do you have: I have an iPhone 4 and a Blackberry.
What do you cuddle up to at night: Recently Louis, ‘cos he’s started sleepwalking and got into my bed when we were sharing a room in a hotel. I pushed him on the floor and he sat up, put his arms out and started humming the song from The Jungle Book. It’s only recently that he’s started doing it.
