Lovely story along the lines of folktale - maybe not authentic Irish, but for those of us of Irish decent it's a lovely armchair visit "home."

Excellent movie for Adults and Children. Lovely, lovely story and I didn't find it too sweet. Beautiful scenes of Ireland, the sea, and wonderful actors and characters.

Some may like this quaint 'magical' story from Ireland. I'm Irish and I found it far too sweet for my taste.
