St. Patrick’s Day is not a day you would normally consider traveling on, but this year it just happens to fall in the middle of your children’s Spring Break, so you thought why not? As travel restrictions lift and airlines are offering great deals to inspire travelers to start traveling again, this might be the perfect time to mosey on down to Texas Hill Country and check out what I Love Dripping Springs has to offer in terms of our holiday hideaways! Spring has sprung in Texas and it is time to let your inner cowboy or cowgirl sneak out for a week or weekend of fun under the southwestern sun. This guide to our homes will help you narrow down your choices for a St Patrick’s Day in Texas Hill Country you’ll never forget!
Irish for the Weekend
Although the style and décor of our Texas Hill Country homes will not resemble the old country, the warmth and welcoming you feel when you walk in the door will definitely offer more than a hint of the Irish you never knew you had hidden deep inside! Cooking corned beef and cabbage in kitchens designed to bring back the joy of cooking, sipping green beer in the dining rooms, and perhaps re-watching the classic movie, “The Boy with Green Hair,” in comfy living rooms will be just the start of the fun you can have during your stay. Pick your spot, either in the hustle and bustle of town or in the quiet and peaceful outer limits, and discover vacation homes that could have come out of your dreams! Our newest properties located in the heart of Texas Hill Country will offer all the warmth of our standard properties and all the comforts of home while offering enough bedrooms for everyone in your group to have their own space.
Kitchens large enough for more than one chef to move about without stepping on toes, dining rooms with tables that will seat your entire group and living areas with large smart TVs and views of the hills, meadows, and woods that can be found just outside. Offering wood floors, plush sofas, and high-end appliances, every room reveals a treasure that somehow you never expected but knew you should! Our Hill Country homes are larger ones, featuring 5 or 6 bedrooms and space for up to 20 people, so if have a big event coming up, why not consider turning your St. Paddy’s Day celebration into an even bigger celebration and invite your friends and family to join in the fun? Everyone deserves a break from the bad stuff in the world, and it is impossible to be unhappy when vacationing in Texas, so we hope to see ALL of you very soon!
Top of the Morning to You
While we are far, far away from the rolling hills of Ireland, the green grass and canopies of trees will make you feel close to your home country if you are Irish for more than just the holiday! Start each day with a hearty breakfast from a local diner; Hill Country Café in Kerrville is one of our favorite spots. Offering a country décor that starts with gingham checked curtains hanging from the picture window in the front of the café, a friendly ambience that makes you feel like you are a part of the “family,” and serving your favorite comfort foods, including biscuits and gravy, your mornings will shine brighter when you start them at the Hill Country Café!
On the opposite end of the spectrum, when you are looking for a cold and refreshing beverage to wet your whistle this St Patrick’s Day in Texas Hill Country, you don’t want a place filled with plants and pretension! You want a cold beer served with a smile and a low bar tab. You will find all three at Arkey Blue’s Silver Dollar in Bandera! This Honky Tonk does have a $5 cover charge, but the beer is cold, the sawdust on the floor is real, and the sign on the wall requiring cowboys to wear shirts in order to be served but offers free beer for cowgirls who do not will make you laugh.
