I learned a few things while I was in Ireland:
A hot soak in seaweed relieves jet-lag.
When someone says “Now that’s good craic (pronounced crack)” they are not referring to a drug. They are referring to a fun time and good conversation.
Do not ask for cream with your tea or coffee. You will get whipped cream. Instead, ask for milk.
A proper pint of Guinness is served to those who wait. It takes time for this brew to settle properly before drinking.
People in Ireland don’t name their children Shannon (uh-hm, Mom). It is the US equivalent of naming your child Mississippi or Rio Grande.
You can pay to spend the night in a former insane asylum in Sligo.
Sitting in a pub, Guinness in hand, with a peat fire burning, is a really good memory to have.
Jack in the Box is not a restaurant, it is a dead man from Dublin.
U2 got their start playing on Grafton Street.
Temple Bar is not an actual bar. Well, it is a bar, but the name refers to an area that is the cultural quarter of Dublin.
After a few pints of Guinness, you might see faeries.
