May the luck of the Irish be with you! Now that St. Patrick’s day has officially arrived, several stars are celebrating the annual holiday with their friends and loved ones. Many stars are of Irish descent and they often rock their favorite shades of green on March 17! One Direction hunk Niall Horan, 23, was born in County Westmeath, Ireland, so he always pays homage to his homeland. Mischa Barton‘s  grandfather is also Irish. That’s only a start of the sexy Irish celebs!
Colin Farrell, 40, calls Dublin, Ireland home and he’s got the dreamy accent to match. Some fans definitely wouldn’t mind kissing this heartthrob for good luck! Olivia Wilde, 33, has dual citizenship in the US and Ireland. The Drinking Buddies actress chose her stage name “Wilde” after being inspired by Irish author Oscar Wilde and she always celebrates the holiday! One of our favorite Dublin natives is Jonathan Rhys Meyers, 39, the actor best known for his Golden Globe-winning role as King Henry VIII in The Tudors. We can’t forget those bright blue eyes!
Matthew McConaughey, 47, is also of Irish descent, as his mother’s family hails from the Cavan area. On top of that, his father even had Irish roots, so we love catching any pics of his gorgeous brood celebrating the special day. Even the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, 35, “has Irish ancestry.” She had a blast during last year’s festivities, rocking a bright green hat!
Katy Perry, 32, always proves that she’s proud of her ancestry! Her great-great-grandmother was from County Galway, Ireland, so the singer often gets in the spirit when the holiday rolls around. Mandy Moore, 32, Pierce Brosnan, 63, and Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan, 34, are also of Irish descent! We love how several sizzling A-listers go all out for the occasion!
