St. Patrick’s Day is Monday, March 17th this year, and millions of people worldwide will be donning the green. Our trip a few years back to Ireland took us aboard the luxury river barge, the Shannon Princess, and gave us a first-hand view of the green Ireland is known for. Likewise, our stay in Dublin at The Merrion Hotel allowed us access to all the city has to offer, like the Book of Kells, the Old Library, Trinity College and the Guinness Brewery.

Of course for St. Paddy’s Day, having a pint and doing a jig all adds up to fun, but for the real deal, how about planning a trip to Ireland to see it all yourself?
