4 Day Itinerary
Day 1: London to Dublin
Get excited for St Patrick’s Day! The tour starts at 5.30am from London, where you get on a coach before we board a ferry and sail over to Ireland. Your Guide will keep you entertained during the journey and this is the time to get to know all your new mates before we get the party started. There’s no better way to start your time on the Emerald Isle than arriving in Dublin by sea. Take in the Dublin’s Fair City when we drive to the city centre where you can check in to your hostel. In the evening, it’s time to join us for some proper Irish hospitality at the Shamrocker St Pat’s party where you will meet all the other Shamrocker partygoers.
Day 2: Dublin
Explore the sights and streets of Dublin on our orientation walking tour led by your local Guide before we head to the Guinness Storehouse to discover all there is to know about 'the black stuff'. No need to queue with our fast track entry tickets, so we get straight to business! In the afternoon you have plenty of time to enjoy the festival vibe and take in the music and dancing happening throughout the city. This is also your chance to put the finishing touches to your outfit for the big day. And remember you can never go too GREEN!
Day 3: St Patrick’s Day
St Patrick's Day! Today is the day you've been waiting for. Dress up in green and grab your spot early, as the streets of Dublin fill up fast with other partygoers ready to enjoy the official parade. We're based in the heart of the action, Temple Bar so get ready to have your senses bombarded with colour, music and dancing! Squeeze into a nearby pub for a live music session or join the dancing in the streets. This is St Patrick’s Day done by the Irish on their native soil… expect a wild one!
Day 4: Dublin to London
After an incredible time celebrating St Pat's, say goodbye to the Emerald Isle, until the next time. We board the ferry and make the journey back to London. You can leave Ireland, but it will never leave you! Returns approximately 6.00pm.
