Colin FarrellThe St. Patrick's Day countdown is on. Green beer is brewing, corned beef and cabbage is ready to be cooked, and millions around the world are getting ready to imbibe, don green, and call in sick to work on Friday whether they're Irish or not.

For those with Irish blood, however, the day is especially worthy of a celebration, and Hollywood is full of hot-blooded Irish boys we like to celebrate. So as a little early St. Patrick's Day gift to make your eyes smile -- whether they're Irish ones or not -- here are six of Hollywood's sexiest Irish celebrities:

Colin Farrell

This reformed bad boy is still as hot as they get. Rihanna is one lucky girl -- talk about a step up from Chris Brown!

Bono

I don't care how old he gets, he'll always remain sexy and take me back to an arena in Kansas City during the Joshua Tree tour where I watched him and cried over his beauty while waving a lighter -- sappy, but true.

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey

He was born in Texas, not Ireland, but there's no other Irish lad I would rather drink beer with (or off of) any day. Of course, his girlfriend, Camila Alves, isn't bad either.

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper

Born in Pennsylvania, his father is of Irish descent and clearly passed on some nice-looking genes to The Hangover actor. Thanks Mr. Cooper!

Pierce Brosnan

Pierce Brosnan

The sexiest James Bond ever. His good looks have done anything but fade over the years.

Stuart Townsend

After splitting from Charlize Theron, this Irish native may be single and ready to mingle for all you unattached lasses.
