11 of the most wishlisted Airbnbs in Ireland

We're not going to lie: St. Patrick's Day is fun. And while lots of beer and a sea of green attire make for a few good hours with friends, there's nothing as in-tune with the Irish culture and traditions like an actual visit to the island. In our minds, the best way to experience the country is to take in its breathtaking nature and history with a trip. 

In order to do Ireland right, we suggest pushing your comfort zone just a little bit. Ditch the monstrous city hotels in favor of a rustic boathouse in Whitegate. Cozy up for a romantic retreat at an Ardcath cottage or rent out an old castle for the whole family. In Ireland, Airbnbs may be cheap -- but the experiences they offer are phenomenal. 

Scroll through below to see the most sought-after Airbnbs in Ireland -- and get packing!
