Day 1

Get excited for St Patrick’s Day!  The tour starts at 05.30am 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  St Pat’s party where you will meet all the other partygoers.

Day 2

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!  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 party-goers 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

After a fan-feckin-tastic time celebrating St Pat’s and hanging around with your new friends, it’s time to say goodbye to the Emerald Isle.  You can leave Ireland but it will never leave you!  We board the ferry and make the journey back to London returning approximately at 18.00pm.

Breakfast is included on all overnight tours.  Lunches are not included, unless otherwise stated.  Evening meals are included when stated on the tour itinerary.  On tours of seven days or more, generally fifty percent of dinners are included.  Please check the itinerary page for exact details.

Where does the trip depart from?

Each UK trip will have a dedicated pick up point in central London.  Shorter duration trips will normally depart from Victoria Coach Station, with longer duration trips leaving from the London Reception Centre, near to Waterloo train station.  Departure points will be confirmed before booking a tour.

Can I get picked up from my hotel?

Pick up from hotels is not possible.  You will need to make your own way to the departure point.  However some tours do have a designated hotel departure, which you can stay in prior to the trip.  Please ask at time of booking for departure points and we can direct you to local hotels.

Are entrance fees included?

Entrance fees are included where specified on the itinerary.

Can I pay in dollars?

All tours are quoted and charged in pounds sterling, but you can pay using your local card and currency.  We will debit the card in pounds sterling and your bank will use their exchange rate at that time to deduct the amount in your local currency.

What time does the trip leave and return?

Departure times will vary depending on the itinerary.  European tours departing from London will usually leave between 05.00am and 07.00am.  Multi day UK tours will leave between 06.00am and 07:30am.  Day trips will depart between 07.00am and 09.00am.  European and worldwide tours that start in an overseas city will have a welcome reception on day one of the tour which is usually around 18.00pm.

Is this a definite/guaranteed departure?

A definite departure is guaranteed to operate for that given departure date.  A trip that is not yet designated a definite departure is not yet guaranteed to operate based on current booking numbers.  If a trip and departure date you are interested in is not yet definite, do not let this discourage you from booking.  The more paid passengers received, the odds of the trip operating increase.  In the slim case that the operator withdraw a trip you are booked on due to a lack of numbers, you are entitled to a full refund of any funds already paid towards the tour, or if flexible with your time, we can move you onto another departure.

Who travels on these tours, who else is booked?

Whilst we can not confirm exactly who else is booked on a tour, we can guarantee you will be travelling with fellow liked minded travelers who share a passion for travel, fun, adventure and discovery.  All tours will be run by English speaking guides and age ranges will vary.  The beauty of taking a guided holiday is you’ll have the opportunity to meet and travel with people from all over the globe.

Are transfers included from the airport?

In general, if you are joining or departing your guided holiday on the first or last day, return transfers between the airport and hotel are included (excludes itineraries starting and/or ending in London).  You’ll find specific information on the itinerary’s page.

What optional excursions can I do and can I book them now?

Optional experiences are available on some tours.  These are activities that are not automatically included, but offered during your trip to enhance your travel experience.  These are all bookable whilst on the tour via your tour guide/travel director.  These are payable by cash or card.
