Check out Irish culture from a New York hostel
Those who like to enjoy a piece of Irish culture wherever they are in the world might be keen on an event in the US from August 27th to the 29th.

The Buffalo Irish Festival takes place at Hamburg Fairgrounds, so people keen on attending may be interested in booking a cheap hostel in New York.

An array of entertainment will be on hand to wow visitors, including an original Irish-American historical theatre production.

Individuals looking to take something a bit different away from the spectacle might like to visit one of the genealogy experts, who will be available to give personal guidance.

And it may not be a good idea to stock up on too much breakfast at a hostel in New York before the event as there will be traditional Irish food and drink - most of which imported from the Emerald Isle - as well as a selection of vendors.

Keen shoppers may be able to dig out a bargain in the 25-30 shops - which will feature traditional crafts and goods - and one purchase that could catch a visitor's eye in particular is the souvenir festival shirts.

But if they do not appeal then a garment from Celtic Attitudes - an Irish/Celtic clothing line - might be more worthwhile, as they stock a variety of hoodies, T-shirts, as well as infant and baby clothes.

Moreover, once people have experienced their taste of Ireland in the Big Apple it might be worth booking a New York hostel downtown to check out the Empire State Building.
