When it comes to holidays, there are certain celebrations that are far more associated with film than others. For instance, everyone has their favorite Christmas movies and Halloween movies, as there are plenty to choose from. Heck, even Thanksgiving has a couple classics to call its own. But not every holiday is so lucky. Like St. Patrick's Day. The Irish festival has never been a big enough holiday to gain much attention from Hollywood, but that doesn't mean there aren't any movies to watch on March 17; you just have to think outside the box. And by doing so, you'll find plenty of St. Patrick's Day movies to stream on Netflix.
Now, none of these movies are technically about St. Patrick's Day, but that doesn't mean they won't get you in the holiday spirit. Virtually every film on this list was either produced in Ireland, takes place in Ireland, or both, meaning you'll be exposed to some true Irish culture other than Leprechauns, shamrocks, and green beer (which, by the way, is an American abomination). So take a look at the list of 13 films below, all of which can be found on Netflix, and start your St. Patrick's Day celebration a little early this year.
