Welcome to the land of rolling green hills, medieval castles, kind people, heart-warming whiskey, and loud drinking songs. Most of all, welcome to the land of St. Patrick, the iconic man who exemplifies this joyous spirit. Have a pint, do a jig, stand on a table and go nuts in the home of the Irish's largest festival.

Your trip leader will head down early to the St. Patrick’s Day parade with those who want to check it out.

That night is the time to enjoy the massive celebration with the Irish locals for St. Patrick! You are free to check out as all of Dublin’s world renowned nightlife at various bars, clubs and restaurants recommend by your trip leader.
