'Look' of the Irish: Hot Guys from the Emerald Isle
Niall Horan! Michael Fassbender! Colin Farrell! Kiss them – they're Irish
The Irish stunner used to get flack for his Irish accent from his former One Direction bandmates, but we think it's the cutest thing we've ever heard.
There's nothing shameful about crushing on Alicia Vikander's leading man, who grew up in southwestern Ireland after moving from Germany as a toddler. Before playing a troubled sex addict in Shame, Fassbender paid homage to his heritage in 2008's Hunger, a film about the 1981 Irish hunger strike.
To avoid being pinchable in all the wrong places, the Dublin-born actor prioritizes his workouts. "I actually like the gym," he's said.
How does James Bond always manage to stay out of trouble? He has the luck of the Irish on his side! Although Brosnan portrayed Agent 007 four times between 1995 and 2002, PEOPLE's 2001 pick for the year's Sexiest Man Alive would probably rather go for a pint than a shaken martini.
Kristen Wiig was one lucky lady when she snagged o'dorable Officer Nathan Rhodes, played by O'Dowd, in 2011's Bridesmaids. "I went in [the audition] and did it with an American accent," the University College Dublin dropout, who later coupled up with Maya Rudolph in Friends with Kids, said of the role.
The south Dublin native settled just fine into Downton Abbey, winning hearts as chauffeur-turned-journalist Tom Branson.
We'd start praying if we were guaranteed that Hozier would come kneel down beside us. The bluesy "Take Me to Church" singer is one of the hottest Irishmen in the music game.
Shamrock 'n' roll! The Douglas, Ireland-born actor began his career playing guitar and singing in several rock bands long before his dreamy appearance in 2010's Inception. The blue-eyed Murphy also played Rachel McAdams' worst nightmare in 2005's Red Eye.
He was hotter than shepherd's pie when he went shirtless in 2010's The Pacific. That same year, the Northern Ireland native teamed up with fellow Irishman Liam Neeson for the action flick Clash of the Titans.
Neeson sure knows how to throw back a Guinness — he operated a forklift for the Irish brewery before his screen career took off! From Schindler's List (1993) to Taken (2008), he's a big-screen veteran … and an all-around big guy. At 6'4", Neeson's no leprechaun.
