St Patricks Day Tour 2011. Ireland 3 day hostel trip

Whether youre Irish, or just wish that you were, the St. Paddys feast day on 17 March 2011 is the time to celebrate, and Dublin is THE place to be!

St. Patrick, Irelands patron saint, brought Christianity to the pagan Celts almost 1,500 years ago. Whether youre Irish, or just wish that you were, his feast day on 17 March is the time to celebrate, and Dublin is THE place to be!

St Paddys Day

Once again Fanatics will be in Dublin in a huge way for the biggest St Paddys celebration on Earth. Our tour reps will lead the way for two awesome nights in Dublin and one almighty big street parade on St Paddys Day itself.

Our accommodation is located in central Dublin, a matter of metres from famous Connolly Station, meaning its just a short few minutes walk into the absolute heart of the action both day and night. As always, our Fanatics tour t-shirt is an absolute cracker and a must have souvenir that youll proudly be wearing for years to come back home.

St Paddys Day 2011 is set to be absolutely massive, so get stuck in and totally revel in the craic with the locals and a big bunch of Fanatics passengers. Come and join us!


Wednesday 16 March

Welcome to Dublin! This afternoon make your way to our hostel – directions will be emailed to you two weeks before the tour. Check in is available from around 2pm and baggage storage is available at the hostel if youre arriving early.

This afternoon at 3pm we head out for our fully-included Guinness brewery tour. In addition to a history of Guinness brewing and advertising heres your chance to sample the local brew – free pint of Guinness in hand – while we take in the best view of Dublin on offer!

Tonight meet your Fanatics crew in the hostel lobby at 7:30pm for t-shirt collection before we hit the town in a warm up for tomorrows celebrations. For anyone arriving late details of where we will be tonight will be left in the hostel lobby – just ask the hostel staff for directions (latecomers will be able to collect their merchandise tomorrow morning).

Dublin is one of the genuine party towns of Europe and really has to be experienced to be believed. A range of nightlife from the local traditional micro-brewery pubs to funky modern bars, along with the friendliness of the locals makes going out in Dublin a truly awesome experience. Tonight we hit the city which is always in full swing as the countdown to St Paddys draws nearer!

Thursday 17 March – St Patricks Day!

This morning we stroll into town together early to get a good position for the parade & festivities before settling into our favorite Dublin pub for a true Paddy style celebration. Today is the day for dressing up so grab anything green, do something crazy with your hair and youll blend right in for what is assured to be a highlight of your European adventures! Today is Irelands day and there is absolutely no better way to celebrate it than being in the national capital with plenty of Guinness!

Needless to say, the festivities continue long into the night as all of Dublin comes out in mass celebration. Well have the pick of Dublins pubs lined up for our night-time party where we can celebrate with the locals!

About Dublin

“A good puzzle”, mused Leopold Bloom in James Joyce’s famous novel Ulysses, “would be to cross Dublin without passing a pub”. The task would prove as tricky today.

The pubs of Dublin are not simply places in which to satisfy your thirst. They are theatres for storytelling, backdrops for romance, homes away from home and keepers of the spirit of the city, in more ways than one.
