A plane ticket to Ireland is prohibitively expensive, and the flight attendant won’t let you drink, sing, or knit her dog an Aran sweater. Fast forward to the fun part of visiting Ireland with today's deal: for $20, you get two weekend passes for Indy's Irish Fest (a $48 value) on September 17–19 in Military Park in downtown Indianapolis. After printing your Groupon, present it to the volunteer tent to receive your weekend passes.

The 15th annual Indy's Irish Fest will celebrate Celtic culture with a plethora of tasty foods, the toe-tapping sounds of Irish music and dance, and a full lineup of activities for adults and kids alike. The festival's schedule of events is brimming with Isle-inspired activities, while the festival's cultural area educates visitors on Irish and Irish-American customs, such as "getting Joyced," in which a friend is shown a copy of Ulyssses at a party, and is then obligated to read the entire thing out loud.

For sports, the annual Kilted Mile race arrives on Sunday at 2 p.m., as wool-covered knees run down New York Street while bagpipes provide festive background music. Several Irish-related musical acts will also supply traditional and contemporary sounds, like progressive Celtic rockers Off Kilter and the dance-and-fiddle collective Celtic Spring. Prepare for upcoming recitals with step dance instruction Friday at 8:15 p.m., and move your gams as quickly as a cheetah in two pairs of sensible hard shoes.

A number of local Irish restaurants will set up culinary bases over the weekend, including the Claddagh Irish Pub and Murphy's Steakhouse, while of-age guests can enjoy Guinness, Smithwick's, or Killian's. Peruse the festival's bustling markets for Irish tweed hats and authentic coats of arms, or get inked with an airbrush Celtic tattoo from Fireball Designs. Every inch of Irish culture will be available to explore, from sports to music to the wearing of porcelain Bono masks, all with today's Groupon to Indy's Irish Festival.
