IrishCentral has compiled our favorite Irish movies, Irish TV, Irish food and drink recipes to keep you entertained throughout social distancing, social isolation, and quarantine.

We know a lot of people, especially in Ireland, are suffering with yet more in lockdowns. A year after this awful disease entered society we're all going a little stir crazy but IrishCentral are here to help!

When you think about it, Irish food is hearty and comforting, our drinks are known around the world and considering the size of our small island (the same size as Idaho) we're prolific writers and movie makers. 

So during these unbearably uncertain times, IrishCentral invites you to keep it Irish. Sit back, try to relax, and look after yourselves.

With all the great films and TV coming out of Ireland and based around Irish tales you'll be spoiled for choice.
