Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!
We celebrate the life of Saint Patrick and the Irish culture on this day. And in honor of this holiday, Maimovie has ranked the top 10 movies with Irish spirit for you to watch!
While they may not explicitly be about the holiday itself, they’re all feel-good movies either about someone Irish or that takes place in Ireland. We’ve got movies about Irish immigrants in America, two Irish hitmen in Bruges, a group of boys forming a band in Dublin, and all sorts of great stories!
Oh, and don’t forget to wear something green for the day!
The following list was based on Maimovie on March 17, 2022, under the “with Irish spirit” and “for St. Patrick’s Day” Keytalks. Check out the Maimovie app or website to discover more movies and shows.
