Montserrat!

The New York Post Between the rampant Guinness chugging, green-hill-rinse-repeat topography and a St. Patrick's Day that's been deputized a federal holiday, you can barely tell the difference between Montserrat and Ireland, where its first Catholic settlers hailed from. Er, except it's sunny, the people are tan and there's an active volcano.
The only hiccup is accessing this leprechaun-sized Leeward island of just over 5,000 people. While there are no direct flights from the US, and probably never will be, you can get to Montserrat in a couple of different ways from Antigua, which American nonstops it to out of Miami.
