St. Patrick's Day Movie Recommendations: The Seven Best Irish Films of All Time

I love the holidays: any excuse to relax with a tumbler of whisky without the fear of scolding or the nagging sense of guilt that I should be doing something productive, not drinking on a weeknight, etc., is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. But going out on holidays can be such a drag: ridiculously high covers and obnoxious crowds everywhere on New Year's Eve, all of the best restaurants booked full months in advance for Valentine's Day...Better to stay at home, as I will be doing this St. Patrick's Day. So if you're like me and want to get your Irish on this year without having to shoulder your way through mobs of drunken frat boys or sidestepping puddles of nuclear-green vomit, do yourself a favor: settle down with your TV tray piled high with corned beef and cabbage, your tureen of colcannon, and a tall glass of Guinness (or a beer with green food coloring, if you must), and check out one of these thoroughly Irish flicks.

Nice list here. Of course for me, it'll always be Boondock Saints....can't get enough of that movie. It was just fantastic!

I love Boondock Saints! I'd never claim it to be any great achievement in cinematic history or anything, but it's just an awesome and fun movie. Maybe not one of the best movies ever, but still definitely one of my favorites.

I'm ready to hear about a third Boondock Saints in fact. That hanger at the end of Part 2 left me real curious.

Yeah I know right. I wasn't nearly as impressed with the second one, but I'm still down for more in this series. Let's hope it happens soon.

Yea the second wasn't as good as the first. I still enjoyed it, but it just wasn't up to the same level. I'll definitely see a third though. Especially with the doors that cliffhanger opened up.

Of course, given how long it took to get Part 2 done...I gotta wonder if I'd be alive still for a third movie lol

I haven't seen any of the films on the list. Yeah not even Boondock Saints (only bits n pieces).

I'll see it eventually.
