- St. Patrick’s Day Party
Named after Ireland’s guardian saint, the revered Saint Patrick. He supposedly expelled all snakes from the region. Regardless of whether you accept the tale, this is the year’s largest Irish celebration. Dublin has the largest celebration. It’s among the largest global festivals, so book early to avoid disappointment!
- See old castles
Ireland is a nation rich in heritage and fortresses, some studies estimate as much as 30,000 ruins and castles. You can’t overlook the decaying remains of Dunluce Castle or the immaculately maintained Cahir Castle in Tipperary. You may arrange a middle age-inspired dinner at Bunratty Castle in Clare or a lodging at the stunningly renovated Ashford Castle in Mayo. If you just have 30 minutes in Dublin, catch the train to Malahide Castle. Acquire the Heritage Card if you intend to explore multiple sites. It’s 40 EUR and gets you into dozens of Irish castles.
- Blarney Stone
Blarney Castle is near Cork. Visitors come to view the Stone, which is embedded in the building and is composed of Carboniferous limestone. According to an Irish legend, individuals who kissed the blarney stone will get fluency (blarney now means “flattering speech”).
