St. Patrick’s Day Breaks with a Difference

This week we have rounded up a selection of travel offers for St. Patrick’s Day from ITAA members


Amsterdam, 15th March, 3 nights, from €329 pp

Check out Netherlands’ capital this St. Patrick’s Weekend and discover its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. Amsterdam’s Museum District offers so much to culture buffs from the Van Gogh Museum, to works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk.


Amsterdam has all the advantages of a big city: culture, nightlife, international restaurants, good transport – but it is quiet and, largely thanks to its canals, has little road traffic. The 4* Hotel Vondel in Amsterdam is situated in a charmingly attractive residential area and is the perfect location from which to explore Amsterdam city centre with its copious shops, countless restaurants and diverse tourist attractions.


Price includes: return flights from Dublin to Amsterdam, 10kg hand luggage per person, 3 nights in double room on room only basis, admission to Amsterdam Icebar including three drinks and 60-minute sightseeing cruise along the Amsterdam Canals.

Stay in the 4-star Hyatt Regency Montreal in the heart of the city’s cultural district and discover the vibrant mix of the old and the new in Canada’s second largest city. This year’s parade takes place on Sunday 19th March so you have plenty of time to discover this fantastic city in advance.
