The Luck of the Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!

Tis’ the luck o’ the Irish.  According to GalaBingo.com, that’s a proven fact.  The e-commerce gambling website ranks Northern Ireland as the third luckiest region in all the United Kingdom (UK). 

Bending over backwards has been one of the more traditional ways to obtain luck in Ireland – at the Blarney Castle in Cork, that is.  A kiss of the Blarney stone has been enticing visitors for two hundred years with promises of good luck and eloquence.

The 2010 St. Patrick’s Day Festival, March 12 – 17, offers an array of & activities and lively events including a parade and traditional Irish-language entertainment.  Held in both Dublin and Limerick, this year marks the 15th anniversary of the Festival.  Cork, Galway, and Dingle also have St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

Flights from Newark, NJ, to Dublin start as low as USD $512 per person return for travel in April (Continental/Lufthansa combo with Travelocity).  Once you arrive, pick up a Dublin Airport car hire and drive the amazing 191 mile (307 km) route through Tramore and up to Cork for your kiss o’ the Irish Luck.

St. Patrick's Day sparks events across the world including celebrations in Montreal, QC; Melaque, Mexico; Boston, MA; Toronto, ON; and Sydney, Australia.
