We hope you have been enjoying our collection of at-home virtual trips inspired by favorite Adventures by Disney destinations. Today, we are going to journey to the Emerald Isle, a land rich in culture and tradition. Now it’s time to gather your family and get ready to virtually discover the castles, countryside and magic of Ireland. Across the Emerald Isle we go!
1. Explore the landscapes, legends and lore of Ireland
In this video, you’ll see the beauty of the lush, green countryside that gave Ireland its well-known moniker, the Emerald Isle. You’ll also experience the sights, sounds and traditions of this magical destination with a journey to ancient castles and a front-row seat to a game of hurling, Ireland’s 3,000-year-old national sport.
TIP: Many streaming devices and smart TVs allow you to mirror your smart device/computer and play videos directly on the big screen.
2. Discover the luck of the Irish
On an Adventures by Disney Ireland vacation, junior adventurers can search for lucky shamrocks on the sacred grounds where Saint Patrick once stood. You may not be able to find shamrocks as easily at home, but you can make some Disney magic with a few garden rocks. This do-it-yourself painted rock art activity gives you the chance to turn ordinary rocks into treasures. Fill your own pot of gold with these magical creations and create your own luck!
