Ireland may be a year-round dream destination, but it's particularly coveted on St. Patrick's Day. While you may not meet many Dubliners on their city's streets for the parade, you will get to know plenty of visiting partygoers throughout the day.

47-48 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, Ireland
On Saturday nights most of the streets are pedestrian-only, live music spills into the streets, and the frothy stout flows free. Locals are spoiled in that they can revel on these ancient cobbled streets as frequently as they like, while the rest...
