First, let’s deal with the pronunciation. The `ee’ is like the `ee’ in `feel’, `peel’, and `heel’; the following `o’ sounds like the `o’ in `hot’, `cot’, and `dot’. Eeyore is the name of one of the characters in A. A. Milne’s children’s classic, `Winnie the Pooh’. Eeyore is a donkey; he is very pessimistic, and makes cynical comments about a lot of things. He is seldom happy. Therefore, when you say that someone is `Eeyorish’, what you mean is that the person is gloomy or depressed.
