'Films set in a country' differ from 'films shot in a country' and a 'film's nationality'. In films set in a country, the story depicts the characters/action situated/located in a said country. While in some films the action is set in multiple countries, in others it is set in one specific country. Some films that are set in a country may not necessarily be shot in that country and/or are not produced from that country. This is a list of films set in Ireland, meaning the films in this list depict their characters as being located in Ireland. While the majority of the films listed are Irish films, others are not, such as Hungry Hill (1947) (British), The Black Sheep (1960) (German), The Craic (1999) (Australian), and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) (United States). The same applies with, while the majority of films were shot in Ireland, others were not, such as The Naked Truth (1957) (Irish scene filmed at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom), The Long Good Friday (1980), (scene in pub at start of film shot in United Kingdom), The Brylcreem Boys (1998) and Waking Ned (1998) (both filmed entirely on the Isle of Man), and The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (2009) (filmed entirely in Canada, including Irish portion). The list is categorised into sections consisting of Feature Films, Short Films, Documentary Films and Mini-Series set in Ireland, and the films are listed alphabetically. There is also a section of a short list of films shot, but not set in Ireland listed at the bottom. These lists are not exhaustive.
