What's it all about?
St Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and March 17th was the day of St Patrick's death. Irish communities the world over celebrate this day with typical gusto, but nowhere can quite match the capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin!
And did we mention the Guinness? The Irish national tipple flows in abundance as locals and visitors alike enjoy the terrific atmosphere.
The festivities build up in the days prior to St Patrick's Day itself, making this more like a 4 day festival. The streets come to life with open air performances and the locals come out to party, making it the liveliest time of year in Dublin!
On St Patrick's Day itself, March 17th, up to 8000 people will be parading through the city with various marching bands and performers from Ireland and beyond. We can don our green outfits and head out to join in the fun! If we're out early we can secure good spots to watch the parade, and enjoy the atmosphere as it builds through the day. To round off a day of festivities, take a visit to Temple Bar for a drink and of course join us for our Topdeck St Patrick's Day party!
Plus, no visit to Dublin would be complete without a visit to the World famous Guinness Storehouse! Topdeck have included a tour of the Guinness Storehouse, housed in the grounds of the legendary brewery. After making your way through the interactive exhibits, the tour ends in the Skybar, blessed with fantastic 360 degree views of the city – which at this time of year is covered in green!
Dublin International airport serves flights with Ryanair, Air Lingus and British Airways direct from London and heaps of other European cities.
Once you've booked on the trip, you'll get detailed instructions in your pre-departure information of how to get to our centrally-located hostel.
