This St. Patrick's Day are you going "where streams of whiskey are flowing?" (sorry, couldn't resist a reference to The Pogues!)
London - Dublin: To all your lucky people, make sure to meet us at Kilburn (tube) station at 6:15 am where your Leprechaun tour guide will meet you with our luxurious Paddywagon bus and take you on an unforgettable journey. Departure is at 6.30am sharp! We cruise through the English countryside, taking in the beautiful vistas as we head to North Wales where our ferry awaits. Take the time to get to know your fellow travelers and guide, and make the most out of the ferry ride across the beautiful Irish sea. We arrive in Dublin early evening and take you to your accommodation for the night. Once you check in, we depart for the amazing Paddywagon welcoming party that we have prepared just for you! We take you to one of the best pubs Dublin has to offer where you can enjoy traditional music and a pint or two! Not a bad start, ey?
The only national festival celebrated the world over! Your morning is free for you to relax and explore. At 10.30am we'll regroup and go to O'Connell bridge to take our places at the world's biggest non-military parade and festival and watch it proceed past us with over 250,000 participants! The parade continues until approximately 3pm where we have time to mingle with the crowds or join in with the locals for some fun and banter on our great national day. At 5pm, you are invited to the legendary Paddywagon Paddy's Day party in our fine city center venue. In the evening maybe try out the monster Ceili (traditional Irish dancing) or the many other activities we have laid out for you, our valued guests. Afterwards, we enjoy a celebration of human happiness in the famed Temple Bar area before we overnight in Dublin city.
The following day, we awake bright eyed and bushy-tailed into a brand new day and boy, are you in for a treat on our fun-filled day trip out to the mouth-wateringly beautiful Wicklow Mountains. Glendalough is the monastic citadel of St. Kevin set in the majestic Wicklow mountains. This beauty spot was chosen by Mel Gibson to be the backdrop of epic blockbuster 'Braveheart'. More recently it sent hearts a-throbbin' when Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank filmed PS I Love You in this idyllic setting! It is located less than an hour from Dublin, which makes it the perfect day trip from our capital city. Our afternoon stop is one of Ireland's most symbolic and sought-after visitor destinations. The Guinness Brewery has an amazing story beginning in 1759 when Arthur Guinness created his first pint of the Black Stuff. There will be much time to enjoy the Guinness Brewery and even enjoy a complimentary pint in the atrium bar, with its 360 degree view of Dublin's Fair City, followed by a free evening to enjoy the delights of our capital's nightlife, from fantastic pub grub to fine dining, traditional music and maybe even a club or two.
Dublin - London: We enjoy a final day of exploring Ireland's fair city of Dublin with a complimentary ticket for Dublin's Open Air Bus Tour. Ireland's oldest university Trinity College, Christchurch Cathedral and Kilmainham Gaol are just some of the many spectacular attractions this beautiful city has to offer, which brings our Paddywagon Paddy's Day tour to a close.
This afternoon we take the lovely ferry across to England, with bars, restaurants, and lots of leisure activities available onboard! We aim to arrive in London Kilburn between 22:00 and 23:00.
