At breakfast at the B&B, Anna is told that trains are not running because it's Sunday. She says that she needs to be in Dublin the next day which is the 29th of February (leap year). February 29th fell on a Monday in 1960, 1988, and 2016, therefore it's likely that the story takes place in 2016. See more »


While crossing the Celtic Sea, the captain of the boat says that because of the storm they would have to put in at Dingle instead of Cork. They would actually have to have passed Cork and sailed for several more hours to reach Dingle, which is on the West coast. See more »

Delightfully innocent and sweet
27 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely adored this movie. So much so that I watched it 6 times within one week. Not because it's anything amazing or Oscar-worthy. Don't expect anything completely awe- inspiring, complex, or brilliant. It's just a simple love story. And what I really appreciate about this movie is how innocent and lighthearted it is. Kind of a breath of fresh, romantic air. Adams and Goode have amazing chemistry and perform their personalities to a T. It was really fun to watch the steady but stubborn transformation of their relationship throughout the movie. If you're a little bored by the acting in the very beginning, don't give up on it... It gets better! And it's even better the second time around.
