17 of the Best Irish Experiences NEW to Airbnb Ahead of St. Patrick’s Day

Today Airbnb revealed 17 of the best new Experiences in Ireland to be listed on the platform ahead of St. Patrick’s Day next weekend.

As we approach Paddy’s Day, hosts across the country are preparing to share their Irish heritage with guests and locals alike by listing traditionally Irish Experiences on Airbnb. Irish culture is as rich and unique, and so before hitting the black stuff, there are plenty of Experiences on Airbnb to book and embrace the Irish spirit.

Dec in Howth is hosting an Irish seafood masterclass, blacksmith Rich is forging in his stone barn in Limerick, a trade that dates back around 4,500 years and Laura is teaching the Irish fiddle in Corofin, one of the most commonly played instruments in traditional Irish music.

For the daring amongst us, Victoria is swimming in the waters of the Wild Atlantic Way and Jen is teaching a crash course in being Irish.
