I think they're a bit more fleshed out in the books, but in the show they are indeed pretty shit.Can it be taken as universal that the Ironborn are everyone's least favourite culture in the Throneiverse? I mean, they're just shit, aren't they? It's not that they're a bunch of thieves, rapists and murderers, because that applies to most ethnic and political groups in the show, it's more their utter lack of any kind of visual charm or flair whatsoever. They have none of the macho-camp nu-metal exuberance of the Dothraki, none of the biker-Viking old-metal appeal of the Wildlings, nor the decadent Borgia-esque panache of the Lannisters. The Dornish lot may be rubbish but at least some of them are nice to look at.
But Dorne is worse. (Oberyn aside.)
