Ireland is regarded as the heart of Celtic myth in modern day. For more on Fairies, Dragons and Spirits why not go there yourself and live the myths? Celtic Dragon and Fairy art is very popular such as the works of Howard D Johnson and Jane S Weills. Composer Medwynn Goodall does excellent Celtic music to create that Fairy fantasy feeling. But if you are into your horror films watch the Banshee (2006) - celtic horror brought to life. On another note the TV series Merlin featuring a talking Dragon and multitude of Medieval - Celtic creatures might take your fancy.
