Now, we know what you're going to say, there's a hell of a lot of romance in that list. Of course there is! Ireland and its history is chock full of romance and drama. Some of the films may be a little more difficult to watch than the others such as Hunger for its content and The Quiet Man for its length. But each and every film on that list is worth a watch! If you're in the mood for something completely insane, you can always pop on Darby O'Gill and the Little People. Not only is it a fun family film, there's some young Sean Connery in there for the ladies ;)
