* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie visit the Giant's Causeway, Guinness Brewery and the Blarney Stone in one day. This is improbable, but not impossible, because the Giant's Causeway is in County Antrim in Northern Ireland, the Brewery in County Dublin (about 250 km away) and Blarney Stone in County Cork (about another 250 km away).

Keep in mind that Irish roads do not allow for all that fast travel and the Irish railroad system is something of a joke.

** When Marge and the children visit Blarney Stone, a monument that can be kissed, she says: "America doesn't have any stones worth kissing. Except for Stone Phillips." Later some stoney rubble is shown with the text: [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones "Blarney Rubble"]].

** The creators luckily managed to avoid directly addressing TheTroubles, except for one throwaway line. As Grandpa enters the Irish bar he had to miss for so many decades he nostalgically says: "Get ready to step back to a simpler age filled with tweet calves, cheerful sheep and unending Troubles."

** An interesting subversion is that Homer and Granpa expect every Irishman to be a drunk, yet most of them don't particularly feel the need to visit a bar.

** Grampa mentions about feeling "as lonely as Estes Kefauver at a meeting of Murder, Incorporated." When the Simpsons look at him blankly, he retorts, "That actually makes sense! Look it up!" Senator Estes Kefauver headed highly-publicized hearings into organized crime in the 1950s. The hearings were a serious blow to the Mob in America, though they are more remembered these days for a side hearing on juvenile deliquency that became a referendum on comic books and the direct cause for the creation of the Comics Code Authority.
** Bart makes a derigatory remark about UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}} to which Marge replies: "Bart, if you hate Belgium so much: maybe I should take your {{Tintin}}s away", to which Bart scaredly replies he'll be good, clutching a copy of [[Recap/TintinTheCrabWithTheGoldenClaws The Crab With The Golden Claws]]

** Tom O' Flanagan describes himself as an "old man yelling at his tapes." This is a reference to the modern Irish play, "Krapp's Last Tape".
** When Marge chases Bart and Lisa upon the Giant's Causeway, a reference is made to the videogame Q-Bert.

* CulturalTranslation: Bart watches a German dub of Krusty's show on the multichannel TV set of the Irish pub owner. (Also note that despite being dubbed Krusty and Sideshow Mel's lip movements still match with what they are saying in German.)

This could also count as GratuitousGerman, by the way, as it happens in an episode taking place in Ireland.
