Happy St Patrick's Day

St Patrick's Day is a cultural and religious holiday. In the US it is a celebration of the Irish culture in America and is celebrated with numerous parades. The Irish pubs get crowded and everyone wears something green and drink Guinness beer (my hubby's favorite).

I would love to share these amazing photographs from Sydney-based commercial photographer Katie Quinn Davies of her trip to Dublin. She photographed three of her favorite Dublin pubs: Keoghs on South Anne Street; O'Donoghues on Merrion Row; and McDaids on Harry Street. Each photograph captured the essence of original local pubs where you can get the feel of the old world and the coziness of the space.

 I absolutely adore her photographs; If you want to see more check out her blog What Katie Ate.

And, if you're planning a trip to Ireland. The Doonbeg Hotel is a luxurious seaside resort offering everything from a private golf course and the world-class White Horse Spa to exceptional gourmet dining, on-site fishing, horseback riding, surfing, and even a team of genealogists on staff to help you discover your personal Irish heritage.
