11 Irish celebs we'd gladly kiss

Erin go Bragh

It's that time of year again, St. Patrick's Day! And what better way to celebrate than to share 11 Irish celebs we'd gladly share a kiss with? Now, not all on this list were born in Ireland but all DO have some Irish lineage (here's looking at you Olivia). Now without further ado, let's get to our list.

1. Colin Farrell

What list would be complete with our main man Colin? He skyrocketed to fame in 2004 with Oliver Stone's Alexander and has been a household name ever since.

2. Niall Horan

I often flip-flop on which former One Direction I love more, Harry or Niall. Seeing as we're nearing St. Patrick's Day and Niall is Irish... he gets my heart AND a spot on our list.

3. Olivia Wilde

Although it may be a bit of a stretch to say she's Irish, Olivia Wilde is certainly Irish-American. Born to an American mother and an Irish-raised English father, she is more than deserving of a little love on St. Paddy's Day.

4. Jamie Dornan

Mr. Grey will see you now (and he's Irish). Although he uses a pretty convincing American accent in Fifty Shades of Grey, he is most certainly not American. Check out his stint on Once Upon a Time for some more swoon-worthy material.

5. Liam Neeson

Yet another celeb our list wouldn't be complete without. Perhaps one of the most famous Irish celebs to date, Liam Neeson has been a mainstay of popular culture for years. So go ahead, make yourself a nice little Liam Neeson movie marathon to celebrate this weekend.

6. Saoirse Ronan

LADY BIRD! Saoirse Ronan has taken Hollywood by storm, already racking up 3 Oscar nominations by the age of 23. She's also managed to take our hearts. Whether she's playing the petty little sister in Atonement or the girl we have all totally been, she's one we'll be watching.

7. Michael Fassbender

There really aren't many words to say other than "He's so f*cking hot." Alicia Vikander is a very luck woman and if you're feeling like something a lil NSFW... google "Michael Fassbender Shame".

8. Allen Leech

Now Allen Leech looks almost exactly like internet boyfriend Niall Horan, enough so even he's mentioned it on social media. Our favorite chauffeur turned upstairs family member on Downton Abbey, he's made us both laugh and cry.

9. Sarah Bolger

I'm not sure what is in the water over in the casting office of Once Upon a Time but Sarah Bolger is now the SECOND cast member of the show to earn a spot. You may also recognize her as the very non-Irish Lady Mary Tudor in The Tudors.

10. Cillian Murphy

It's rather easy to forget that Cillian Murphy is Irish. I mean, I've certainly done it. The Peaky Blinders star has the piercing blue eyes we'll be thinking about well into next St. Patrick's Day.

11. Aidan Turner

My personal favorite, Aidan Turner has been in swoon-worthy after swoon-worthy role over the years. Even as a dwarf in The Hobbit, he still managed to look jaw droppingly hot. If you still aren't fully on board, PLEASE check out Poldark. You won't be sorry.
