Are fairies localized in where they live?

I noticed on one of the TAPS Ghosthunter episodes that they were in Ireland, and were also searching for fairies as well as ghosts, being the cause of phenonmena, etc. It seems like they were big believers in fairies in that region. I do not hear much talk of fairies around except for maybe the tooth fairy.

Is belief in fairies kind of like the belief in leprechauns? Are they found only in certain parts of the world, whereas ghosts are supposedly found everywhere or at least where people believe in them?
