Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Today around the world people will be celebrating all things Irish with much gusto as St Patrick’s Day gets underway.

Whether that be through drinking something green, eating something Irish, donning a big hat, joining in a parade, heading to an Irish pub or sporting a shamrock; we hope you get into the spirit of the day.

Here are some Irish images to get you in the mood and while you’re thinking about the emerald isle, why not consider heading over there this year? With a struggling economy, the locals will certainly thank you and besides there’s plenty of wonderful scenery, fantastic pubs, local culture and tremendous walking and biking opportunities to be had.

VIP Backpackers can offer you plenty of places to stay in Ireland and tours to consider. Check out our database.

In the meantime we hope you enjoy a little bit of Ireland today – Happy St Patrick’s Day!
