There’s no denying, St. Patrick’s Day looks a little different this year. While we can’t welcome the world to our shores to celebrate with us in person, there’s no reason why we can’t still celebrate everything that makes Ireland unique on this special day. Especially for those who share Irish heritage, who far from our little island, we’d like the chance to bring together the festivities.

Here are just a few ways you can bring Ireland home this St. Patrick’s Day.

Cook a traditional Irish Meal

Did you know that Ireland is home to some truly tasty treats? Well, now you do! While we can’t invite you on a journey to try fresh coastal seafood or hearty pub dishes, there are still plenty of ways to bring that taste of Ireland home. From hearty stews to simple and filling soda bread, there’s no shortage of delicious food you can try this St. Patrick’s Day!

Don’t know what to make? No worries! Our community is full of ideas for tasty treats straight from the Emerald Isle!

Play some Irish Music

Perhaps one of the most simple and accessible ways to celebrate Irish culture is to turn up the music. People in Ireland love a good tune and there’s no shortage of talented Irish musicians ready to spread their voices around the world.

We might just have a song or two in mind to help bring a bit of Ireland back home.

Test your knowledge of Ireland.

A big thank you to the organisers and performers at last night's big St Patrick's Day party from Dublin, Belfast and Dingle - a varied programme bursting with talent, Irish warmth and lovely accents. We were with you from Sweden via YouTube (at the right time!) and had great fun joining in the dancing, singing, playing the spoons and pouring a Guinness properly. Great craic! 
Go raibh míle maith agat,
Catriona & John

Thanks again for your warm words,

We just moved our feet incredibly fast so that no one would notice that all our steps were wrong.;) But the main advantage of joining in from our own home was that there was no one else there to laugh at our hopeless attempts. :D 
Luckily, the Riverdance performance was laid on to spectacularly put us to rights. What a treat!

Catriona
