Did you find a four-leaf clover? You must’ve, since you’re lucky enough to be in Ireland, the land of leprechauns and pots o’ gold. Okay, maybe that’s just the Ireland in our heads and on cereal boxes. But, believe it or not, the real Ireland is better. What is better than tiny green men and rainbows, you ask? Well, full-grown Irishmen (with brogues) and fish ’n’ chips. (Do rainbows leave you with the ever-satisfying food coma? I don’t think so. But, then again, we’ve never eaten a rainbow before.) Ireland is chock full of castles and pubs, parks and Riverdance. There is a reason why a country that sees so much rain is full of so many happy people. So follow this magically delicious guide to Ireland to see what all those Irish are smiling about.
