* IrishNames: The film's best joke, at least for Irish audiences:
-->''Anna reads the name "Eoghan" on a bartenders shirt.''
-->'''Anna:''' Hello, um, E..o..g..h..a..n?
-->'''Eoghan:''' ''Owen.''

* BarBrawl
* BelligerentSexualTension

to:

** Dingle is actually a thriving modern tourist hub, not the rural backwater of the film.
** It would only take an afternoon to drive the four hours to Dublin from Dingle. Less if Declan just dropped her off at the closeby Kerry airport now that the weather is better - it's only a one hour flight!
** Several of the landmarks in the film depicted as very close together are actually extremely far apart in reality. In one hilarious example near the end of the film, Anna apparently walks from Dingle to Dún Aonghasa in minutes... an archaeological site that is 100km away and ''on an island.''
* BarBrawl
BarBrawl: Declan instigates one to get Anna's suitcase back.
* BelligerentSexualTensionBelligerentSexualTension: To such an extreme between Anna and Declan that it makes no sense how suddenly they get together later in the plot.

* {{Badass}}: Declan takes bloody good care of those punks who stole Anna's stuff. [[WomenPreferStrongMen Much to Anna's admiration.]]

* ShirtlessScene: Declan in the bathroom, with the door open. Anna's so (smilingly) distracted by it she (literally) bumps into a door.
