If you’re searching for an exciting St. Patrick’s Day experience, Dublin is the haven for an authentic and celebratory time, and there’s no better time to travel than in March.
On Sunday, March 17, Dublin’s Temple Bar neighborhood will host the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade — an entertaining event filled with costumes, dancing, pints of Guinness, and pubs.
The winding maze-like streets are filled with charming pubs, delicious restaurants, and electrifying nightlife.
If you’re planning to go for a long weekend, start your visit with a trip to the Jameson Distillery, which has been making authentic whiskey for over 200 years.
Then, head over to the Guinness Storehouse, where you can learn about Ireland’s rich history and top it off with a pint at the rooftop Gravity Bar.
Dublin residents tend to steer clear of the Temple Bar pub crawl so if you’re looking for a quieter visit, do as the locals do and book a delightful Airbnb with dinner at The Vintage Kitchen, a marvelous tiny restaurant that’s also one of the highest-rated in the neighborhood (the seafood is a must).
