Every year on March 17, we all have the good luck to feel a little bit Irish. But to truly experience luck like a local, you need to travel to the Emerald Isle and immerse yourself in its charms. Hanging upside-down and kissing the Blarney Stone like thousands before may bring its own kind of fun and the promised gift of eloquence (plus a few germs, right on the kisser), but you’d be well-advised to look beyond it. Here are ten amazing places to find your own personal pot of cultural gold in Ireland, and maybe a bit of luck to boot.
