Hotels in Dublin are completely booked. The streets of Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan are clogged with green-clad tourists. Towns around America are clearing Main Street for a parade. Yep, it’s St. Patrick’s Day once again. While St. Patty's Day is certain to become a raging Friday night, there ways to celebrate Irish culture that don’t involve downing a Guinness.
An island with a reputation for storytelling, Ireland has produced some of English literature's finest writers and English cinema's finest films.
