Ah, St. Patricks's Day — a reason to have a pint or two of Guinness, to swaddle yourself in your favorite chunky wool sweater, and to stink up the kitchen with corned beef and cabbage. It is a truly blessed day. You can also celebrate the patron saint of Ireland by cozying up to your favorite movies filmed in Ireland. The romantic sleeper-hit Once, the indie musical/dark comedy Frank (mmmm... Michael Fassbender), and the guiltiest of all guilty pleasures P.S. I Love You will transport you to the green, majestic landscapes of Ireland. Movies set in Ireland have a certain whimsical quality. If you've ever traveled to Ireland then you know that it's just as magical in person, if not more, than it is on film.

There are also lots of famous movies that you probably never knew were filmed in Ireland. The next time you watch these nine films, see if you can catch the Irish countrysides, mountains, and wee towns that filmmakers pass for England and even the 'ol U.S. of A. Take a look.
