Blend into the green masses on a Paddy's Day pub crawl in Templebar (Dublin), kiss the Blarney Stone, dance an Irish jig to traditional music at the local pub, experience the best craic Ireland has to offer.

Leave the green beer and tacky hats behind and have an authentic St. Patrick’s Day experience in Ireland. Of course, there’ll be the requisite Paddy’s Day partying in Dublin, but there will also be pub crawls in locales like Galway, Killarney and Cork, as well as storytelling tours and orientation walks to get you up to speed on Ireland’s culture. A small group size means that you’ll get more attention from the trip’s CEO—and more seats at the pub!
