1. Attend the Titanic’s Annual Irish Celebration
The Titanic was constructed in the heart of Ireland, so the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge is celebrating throughout March with Irish singing and music! The construction of the Titanic started at the end of March 1909 in Belfast, Ireland, and set sail on its maiden voyage in April of 1912 from Southampton, England. There were 159 Irish passengers and crew members aboard the ship, which outnumbered all of the other nationalities on board. Visit the Titanic’s Annual Irish Celebration to pay tribute to these Irish passengers, listen to some great Irish music and explore artifacts from the famous ship!
2. Visit Dollywood’s Festival of Nations
Another great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day while staying in our cabins in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge TN is by visiting Dollywood’s Festival of Nations! This exciting annual festival starts on St. Patrick’s Day and features performances with musicians from around the world. One of the featured performers is JigJam, a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the Midlands in Ireland. The group blends the best of traditional Irish music with bluegrass and Americana to create a new genre which has been termed as CeltGrass! Your admission to Dollywood includes the JigJam shows and all of the other performances in the Festival of Nations.
3. Prepare a Traditional Irish Meal in Your Cabin
One of the fantastic benefits of staying at Acorn Cabin Rentals is that you have access to a fully equipped kitchen with modern amenities. This means that you can prepare a traditional Irish meal in the comfort of your own cabin to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you want to make corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, Irish stew or soda bread, our kitchen has all the necessities to make your delicious meal. The only thing that you need to bring is your grocery supplies, which can be picked up at one of the several local grocery stores in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
4. Search for Shamrocks
If you have young children in your family, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by hunting for shamrocks at Great Smoky Mountains National Park! This is a fun way to get your kids into the spirit of the holiday while enjoying some great exercise. While hiking the trails, you will likely find more wildflowers than shamrocks but you never know when the luck of the Irish might be on your side. Just watch out for those pesky Leprechauns along the trails!
