8 Irish hunks to kick off your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations

What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with Irish hottie-totties? We’ve looked high and low to bring you the hunkiest of hunks from the island.

Above all other things the Irish have contributed to our lives that we will commemorate this St. Patrick’s Day, we’d like to send out a very special “thank you” for all the hotties the tiny island in the Atlantic Ocean has gifted the world with.

They’re talented, funny, kind and unbearably gorgeous. Let us heartily celebrate with oversized posters, girlie squeals and green attire, for today we honour the many hunks of Ireland.

This piece of Irish eye candy may have never made it big in Hollywood (yet), but Colin Morgan is well known across the pond as the star of Merlin. He’s already cast a spell over us


Aidan Gillen

He is now most known as Petyr Baelish or Littlefinger on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but Aidan Gillen has been gracing the screens with his beauty long before the show made it big. He is one cutie!

Jonas Armstrong is the handsome face of the titular character in the BBC series Robin Hood. So he’s a do-gooder, talented actor and a gorgeous specimen of man. What else do you need, really?

Colin O’Donoghue is now famous for playing Captain Hook on Once Upon a Time, and we suppose you could say he really got us hooked… We had to! Look at that adorable face, though!


Aidan Turner

If you don’t recognize him right away, it must be because he’s not hiding behind a giant beard. Aidan Turner plays the awesome-possum dwarf Kíli in The Hobbit. Do you see it now? Much handsomer sans all the hair.


Jonathan Rhys Meyers

He’s played Elvis Presley, King Henry VIII and Dracula, and he did it all while staying impeccably beautiful. His face is very nearly perfect, as if sculpted. Ireland, how do you do it?


Colin Farrell

One of the most famous Irish celebrities, Colin Farrell remains a hunk. Even at 37 years old, he’s as dapper and gorgeous as ever. And that accent! Just hold us back. Hold. Us. back.


Michael Fassbender

German-born but raised in Ireland, Michael Fassbender is definitely the most gorgeous Irishman in Hollywood. That charm, bit of mystery, stunning good looks and a trainload of talent? We’re surprised he’s not taken still.

Who is your favourite Irish hottie? Don’t be shy.
