The actress - who previously filmed the rom-com Leap Year in Ireland - said she's particularly eager to visit the Aran Islands again.
Amy spoke to John Fardy for this week's Screentime, ahead of the release of her new film Hillbilly Elegy on Netflix next week.
Amy said Ireland is "one of the most amazing places", telling John: "I'm actually looking at filming in Ireland again. All I can think of is how I can get onto the Aran Islands.
"I want to take my daughter.... there's something just so magical about it.
"Unfortunately, my memories are mostly about being cold. We were up on the cliff-side, and it was so, so cold... but it was breathtakingly beautiful and there was a sunset over the water. I'm so taken with the magic of that country and the countryside."
She added that her experience involved being 'very cold and [drinking] a lot of Guinness'.
Filming in Ireland
Amy's Hillbilly Elegy co-star Glenn Close also expressed her fondness for Guinness.
Glenn previously spent time in Ireland filming 2011's Albert Nobbs, which was shot in Dublin and Wicklow.
She recalled: "We filmed in that winter with all the snow... they said 'this never happens!'.
"We were in Cabinteely House and didn't have the money to heat the whole house it was so huge. So we would huddle around the heaters we had in our green room.
"It was one of the great experiences of my life. Working with Janet McTeer, and we'd go back to the big [Shelbourne] hotel and we'd look like bag ladies having worked 15 hours.
"We'd go into the Horseshoe Bar, have our Guinness, and all the men would move away from us. It was a grand experience."
Irish author John Banville co-wrote the script of the film, and Glenn says she's 'still in touch' with the writer.
