The Emerald Wiles: Hot Irish Lads

Hot, hot Ireland
Land of saints, sinners, poets
Call them lass magnets

Good people of the internet, please consider this list ‘o Irish hotties as my St. Patrick’s Day gift to you. I love a good brogue, don’t you?


Kenneth Branagh: Super hot, super hilarious actor/director–one of the few that can really rock a red beard. He had me the first time I saw him in one of his many Shakespeare adaptations, Much Ado About Nothing. Those blue leather pants? You know what I’m talkin’ about. 😉

Liam Neeson: Chiseled from all that is good and fine? Check. Gets better with age? Check. Jedi? Check.

Pierce Brosnan: Three words: Thomas Crowne Affair, and two more for good measure: James Bond.

Colin Farrell: He is bad. He knows it. I dig it.

Stuart Townsend: Always adorable, and often a vampy (no pun intended), villainous literary character (Lestat and Dorian Gray to be precise).

Jonathan Rhys Meyers: Naughty monarchs are always okay in my book; plus he made for one fine (albeit messed up) glam rocker in Velvet Goldmine.

Cillian Murphy: Often crazy, a little creepy, and always hot. I’d let him murder me (see Red Eye)


Michael Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds, 300) German-Irish. Born in Germany, but raised in Ireland like a good lad.

Daniel Day Lewis (There Will Be Blood, Last of the Mohicans, Gangs of New York) British-Irish & maintains dual citizenship.

Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man, Sherlock Homes, Tropic Thunder) Irish-American

And all praise the melting pot, because there are even more smokin’ hot Irish-American hotties. Americans blessed with the genetic look luck of the Irish include: Johnny Depp, Jim Caviezel, the Baldwin brothers, the Affleck boys, Chris Evans, Elija Wood, Chris O’Donnell, Mark Wahlberg, John Cusak, Patrick Dempsey, and Stephen Colbert!

    What about the lasses?

    • Junkie1 says:

      How about Brenda Fricker from So I Married an Axe Murderer? I fear the halfie list is better on that front (Irish-American): Olivia Wilde, Rose McGowan, Jennifer Connelly, Alyson Hannigan, Kristen Bell, and Janeane Garofalo.

    i was just thinking that it’s been FAR TOO LONG since the Junkies have provided a list of hot men from other countries.
    THANK YOU! 🙂
