The Savannah Irish Festival is a wonderful precursor to a month of Irish celebrations coming to the city in March. These include the aforementioned St. Patrick’s Day Parade, St. Patrick’s Day Festival, and the Tara Feis Irish Celebration, to name just a few. To say that Savannah is an Irish-friendly city is an understatement!
