As St. Patrick’s Day approaches, it’s time to start thinking of plans to celebrate! Green beer, rowdy people crowding the streets, and fun parades usually come to mind when people think of St. Patrick’s Day. But some cities do even more for this fun holiday. Check out these five cities where you can party your shamrocks off!
What St. Patrick’s Day list would be complete without Ireland itself? If you get to Dublin a week before St. Patty’s Day, you can take a walking tour of the city with Irish author and historian Pat Liddy. Through the tour, you’ll walk around the city and see where Saint Patrick himself walked the streets. You’ll also stop at medieval cathedrals and other historic sites. On Saint Patty’s Day, join thousands of people at the parade at Parnell Square. After the parade you can head to the Irish Craft Beer Village, where you can learn how to craft beer, drink, and enjoy Irish music.
