Born and raised in Castleknock in the Republic of Ireland, Farrell is the son of former football player Eamon Farrell and nephew of Tommy Farrell. Both Tommy and Eamon Farrell played for the Irish Football Club Shamrock Rovers in the 1960s.

It was Farrell's early teenage ambition to follow in his father and uncle's footsteps; however, his interest soon turned towards acting and he joined the Gaity School of Drama in Dublin. Before completing his course, Farrell landed a starring role in Dierde Purcell's miniseries "Falling for a Dancer," a starring role in the BBC series "Ballykissangel," and a featured role in Tim Roth's directorial debut, The War Zone, followed soon after.

He currently lives in Los Angeles.
