Mad Ireland

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I've never been to Ireland, but I've always wanted to go.  I know most of these things are a cliche, but I love some many Irish things:
Fisherman Sweaters, Bono and U2, cool, rainy weather, Shamrock Shakes (lol), writers like Joyce and Yeats, the movie Once (so awesome, so depressing), last but not least, the accent. Sigh.  I'll celebrate St. Patrick's Day by listening to The Swell Season and reading poetry, maybe grabbing a pint of Ben and Jerry's Dublin Mudslide ice cream. Now where can I get a Guinness with a Shamrock in it like this?
