Ah, St. Patrick’s Day.
That annual festival of paying tribute to Irish culture and history.
Or an excuse to get blackout drunk, whichever.
But if you’re a homebody who’ll be staying far, far away from Mickey’s or O’Malley’s or anywhere else that serves Guinness but still want to celebrate, there’s plenty of great Irish movies you can stream on Netflix.
Irish moviemaking is woefully underrated, even though the country has churned out some stellar work over the years. Hell, the nation is responsible for my favorite movie of all time.
So here’s our list of the best Irish movies to stream on Netflix on St. Paddy’s Day.
All movies are available on Netflix US unless otherwise stated.
Make sure to watch any of these instead of Leap Year, and you’ll be flashing your Irish smile all the way to the end of the rainbow (insert more clichés here).
Warning: some of the trailers ahead have some NFSW language, but nothing worse than you’d hear at any Irish pub.
