Top ‘o the mornin’ to ya! Shannon Princess Introduces New Artisan Program in Ireland

It’s March – and that means spring is around the corner!

During this month, the buzz is all about the good ‘ol St. Paddy. Needless to say, the place to visit during this time is the Irish country itself – Ireland!

Hotel river barge Shannon Princess, which cruises in Ireland, recently revealed a new itinerary that focuses on artisan experiences along the River Shannon.

The 10-passenger ship will journey through prehistoric villages, storybook castles, and spectacular green landscapes. Ashore, guests will be able to see how local cheese makers produce their dairy products, visit farmers markets and even sample seductive chocolate at a family-run artisan shop, among other exciting highlights.

Additionally, passengers will be treated to a unique taste of Ireland with Master Chef Olivia’s signature meals. All carefully-crafted meals are prepared with natural ingredients chosen from local producers and country markets along the Shannon. They even have the chance to concoct the dishes themselves by participating in the chef’s private seasonal foraging and cooking lessons.

While I thoroughly enjoy the debauchery that comes with celebrating the Patron’s day here in America, I can only imagine how much better it is on the other side of the fence! It may be too late this year to venture to the land of the Irish…But for now, I’ll just revel in the luck 'o the Irish spirit here, donned in shamrocks and tossed-out beads!
