A Photographic Ode to Ireland on St. Patrick's Day

Whether you're spending the day working from home or playing hooky to prep for your personal Guinness-fueled festivities, we thought you could use a taste of authentic Ireland. Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!

A Brooklyn-based writer and editor, Chelsea's work has appeared in Matador Network, The Huffington Post, the TripAdvisor blog, and more. When not planning her next trip, you'll usually find her drinking way too much iced coffee (always iced—she’s from New England) or bingeing a Netflix original series.

Ancient castles, inconceivably lush countryside, staggering seaside cliffs, and fields full o’cuddly lil sheep—these are just a few of Ireland’s most stunning calling cards. While revelers may not be able to come out in droves this year, clad in glittery shamrock accessories and “Kiss me, I’m Irish” tees for parades and pints of Guinness to celebrate St. Patty’s Day, we thought we’d give you some visual inspo to make your holiday at home a little less blue and a little more green! Here, a few shots that show off the Emerald Isle’s breathtaking natural beauty.
