If you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in America, it's obligatory to familiarize yourself with its country of origin beyond all of the fun and games. In the celebratory spirits of the year's greenest day, Camille DeAngelis is sharing her top picks of the scariest and the most fascinating places in Ireland.

Given its tragic history and vibrant folklore, Ireland seems to have more than its share of creepy places. In the course of my research for Moon Ireland (as well as my latest novel, Immaculate Heart) I've gone for a late-night wander through the monastic ruins at Glendalough as a thick swell of fog rolled in over the headstones; I've wedged myself inside a passage tomb older than the Pyramids, using my iPhone flashlight to see the spiral carvings on the walls; I've been the only living soul in a 16th-century castle B&B, waking at five in the morning to the sound of two sharp knocks on my door. (I could go on!)

It would be impossible to choose a favorite haunted (or at least haunting) spot, but in honor of St. Patrick's Day, here are a few Irish places I've found particularly memorable.
