Deconstructing St. Patricks Day

By Rebecca Dixon, Custom Ireland, a DMC Network Affiliate

 

For many, a trip to the Emerald Isle to celebrate St Patrick’s Day is a bucket list travel experience. This beloved holiday is celebrated globally as the world unites and becomes Irish for a day, but for many, a front row seat on the streets of Dublin city for the annual holiday parade, is a next level experience! Some may choose a more epic journey and following the footsteps of St Patrick himself by visiting some of Ireland’s most iconic sites: St Patrick’s Cathedral in County Down, Croagh Patrick in County Mayo, Hill of Slane in County Meath, or The Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary…  Whatever the intentions for your travel to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day, the trip is sure to be unforgettable.
