St. Patrick’s Day on Oahu

On Sunday, March 17, Honolulu’s “Irish Corner” in Chinatown will again be the scene of the largest St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the Pacific. It follows the annual parade through Waikiki, which is itself a great way for Oahu visitors to mingle with residents at one of the most anticipated events of the year. But […] The post St. Patrick’s Day on Oahu appeared first on Hawaii Aloha Travel.

What are the Celtic nations

Celtic tribes once occupied much of mainland Europe, stretching as far east as modern-day Turkey. Over time, invaders forced the Celts west, and today, there are only six Celtic nations in the world clustered around western Europe, specifically parts of the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, Ireland, and Brittany in France. Some argue that Galicia in northwestern Spain is the seventh Celtic nation as its Celtic heritage is evident to this day, but the six official nations are determined by the ...

St. Patrick’s Day parades in the US

Admittedly, it’s fun to get out and slosh yourself silly in green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. And in some cities — like Chicago, New York, and Boston — you’ll find millions of people who agree with you crowding the streets for the rowdiest St. Paddy’s parties of the year. The problem, of course, is that most of those people had Guinness for breakfast too, so by parade time things can get a little… sloppy. There are, however, smaller destinations around the country with celebrations that are ju...

Hiking the Croagh Patrick pilgrimage

For out-of-towners , Ireland is usually summed up as the land of Guinness, craic, and cable-knit sweaters — a description that ignores many of the greatest aspect of the country, including hiking. As an outdoors destination, Ireland is totally underrated. The Camino may hog the spotlight when it comes to European pilgrimage routes, but make no mistake: A hike up Croagh Patrick is just as spiritual and the views just as spectacular. While the distance is much shorter than the Camino, the Croagh...

Best and craziest St. Patrick’s Day

People around the US tend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a fairly uniform manner: wearing green, attending parades, pretending Guinness has always been their favorite drink, and using their six percent Irish heritage as an excuse to eat a massive dinner of corned beef, cabbage, and soda bread. Some towns, however, celebrate more unconventionally. For these places, the holiday isn’t just an excuse to drink on a weekday — it’s a genuine celebration of the area’s Irish heritage. In trying to ...

Boston bars for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most popular bar holidays in the US, even if we celebrate it a bit differently than how they do in Ireland. The biggest question most revelers have to ask themselves is where to go. Between pub crawls, drink discounts, and the virtual guarantee that anywhere you go will be a party, there are plenty of upsides to going out on St. Patrick’s Day. The problem is that nothing kills your celebratory buzz like waiting in line. In Boston, which is known worldwide for ...

Best Black Friday Cyber Monday deals

Once upon a time , the day after Thanksgiving — aka the day no one in the US has a damn thing to do — was known as Black Friday. The day retail outlets went “into the black,” so to speak, as shoppers jammed malls and department stores to get a jump on their Christmas shopping. But as shopping in actual stores has become about as relevant as landlines, the shift in Black Friday madness has turned to Cyber Monday — when online retailers offer huge discounts, minus the elbows to the face over Tic...

Marsh Library: The Best and Oldest Library in Dublin

Marsh’s Library, Dublin As a child, I dreamed one day of owning, or perhaps just prowling around, an overtowering library. Shelves would reach beyond my eyes, with creaky ladders required to reach the top. Sunlight would shimmer through dust and romance, and science and wild adventure would swim between the thick, creamy pages where black ink bled into soft and yellowed parchment. Well, in 21st century Dublin I found the library of my dreams, flirting behind flighty leaves and wrought iron ga...

The Saturday City: Chicago

I first visited Chicago at the end of my U.S. road trip in 2006. I spent three days there before leaving to explore the rest of the world. I’d always heard a lot about Chicago and was excited to finally see the Windy City (named because of the politicians who blow hot air, not for the climate). Incorporated in 1833, Chicago has played an important role in the country’s history ever since. In 1840, Chicago was the 92nd most populous city in the United States, but it grew so rapidly that, 20 year...

Memorable Bonding on A Mother Daughter Getaway to Chicago

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Choose Chicago for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. A mother/daughter getaway is about breaking free of routines to do something special with the most important person in your life. We recently decided that it would be a good idea to go on separate trips with the girls to give them the one-on-one time they crave with either parent and have the opportunity to create special memories together. When the opportunity came to travel to Chicago, I ju...

Where to get cheapest Guinness

It isn’t really a St. Patrick’s Day celebration without a pint of Ireland’s greatest export after bog butter and poets. Unfortunately, as anyone who has spent St. Patrick’s Day in New York City knows, a fresh pint of lovely Guinness can cost you a king’s ransom (i.e., several dollars more than that barbaric swill known as American lager). Fortunately, Expedia did some research and found the cheapest and most expensive places for buying a pint of Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day. The results are m...

St. Patrick's Day in Ireland

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland is a bucket list experience for countless travelers. We’ve all seen the sea of green hat-wearing, Guinness-chugging people that swarm the country on its biggest national holiday. But here’s some news that may come as a surprise; those crowds are almost exclusively tourists. Most Irish people prefer to flee the streets and mark St. Patrick’s Day with their own fun traditions. Here’s how to do “Paddy’s Day” the Irish way. Step #1: Feast on a fry. With t...

best us cities for St Patrick's day

St. Patrick’s is a beloved mess of a holiday across the United States, but some US cities are exceptionally good at celebrating St. Patrick’s without too much wanton chaos.

A new scientific study from Wallet Hub graded 200 US cities based on the quality of their St. Patrick’s celebrations. After examining things like the number of Irish pubs per capita, th...

8 ways to save money in Toronto

Toronto is a popular travel destination in Canada but most of the tourist attractions and the hotels in the city center are not cheap, and eating a meal at a central restaurant can easily cost between $15 and $30 per person.

While CN tower charges $36 for general admission, there are places that give visitors a free view of the Toronto sk...

9 things I wish I knew in Dublin

What comes to mind when someone says ‘Dublin’? Guinness, St. Patrick’s Day, pubs? Literary legends like James Joyce and Oscar Wilde? Maybe one more Guinness?

Dalhousie- Colonial Charm Amidst the Dauladhars

Dalhousie might not seem as encapsulating as the other popular hill stations in Himachal. However, the quaint charm of this hill station with its colonial bungalows, churches, tall deodhar trees and views of Pir Panjal range are sure to enchant you as you stroll through its alleyways. Built in mid 19th century over five hills on the edge of Dauladhar range for the colonial officers during British rule, the hill station is named after Lord Dalhousie (James Broun Ramsay), the then Governor ...

Northern Ireland: 15 stunning images from a Game of Thrones-inspired roadtrip

THE RUGGED landscapes of Northern Ireland are so inspiring and beautiful that 70% of Game of Thrones (GoT) filming locations were chosen to take place there. The great beauty of the area seemed almost surreal to me. I was captivated by Belfast’s rich culture and the area’s seemingly endless options for outdoor adventure. An abundance of birdlife, local festivals, and a large number of sporting events make a trip to Northern Ireland a rich and intriguing experience. [Note: Guilherme was a guest ...

Things to do in Montréal: March 17 to 23

Even in the midst of a snow storm, the idea of spring is on the minds of Montrealers by late March – one of the sure signs of the season is the city’s huge St. Patrick’s Day parade, joined this week by sugar shack season, a Pink Floyd opera, the vivid colours of Chagall, butterflies at the Botanical Garden, and plenty more.

The Best Dive Bars To Spend St. Patrick's Day

In our travels throughout the last few years we’ve been in quite a few bars. In fact, from the run of the mill hotel bars to the tiki bars, the saloons to the Irish pubs, we’ve spent time in literally hundreds of them. But out of all the doors we’ve stepped through, there’s one type of bar that’s really always had a special place in our hearts: the dive bar. Maybe it’s because we spent so much time in college at our local dive bar (The Brew, may she forever rest in peace), or maybe it’s because...
